London Broncos have signed Italy international hooker Ray Nasso on a two-year deal from 2015.

The Australia-born 27-year-old has spent two seasons at Sporting Olympique Avignon in France and was previously with Villefranche-de-Rouergue.

“I spoke with Joey about his goals and plans for next season and the future. It’s all very exciting,” said Nasso.

“Having been coached by Joey when I was younger and speaking to him about what he wants to do with the club, I thought it would be a good fit for me.”

Nasso, who qualifies to play for Italy through his Italian parentage, made three appearances at last year’s Rugby League World Cup.

Coach Joey Grima said: “I’ve coached Ray for five years in the Parramatta district as an up-and-coming first-grader.

“Having had a relationship with him, he knows the style of play that I like to play. He’ll be very important and an integral part of the formation I want to run next year.”
