Wigan Warriors can confirm that Chris Hankinson has signed for Betfred Championship side London Broncos on a year-long loan deal. 

Since joining Wigan midway through 2018, the 27-year-old centre has played 23 games for the Club, scoring three tries and kicking 19 goals. 

A powerful and athletic running back, Hankinson joins London with Championship experience after previous spells with Leigh Centurions and Swinton Lions. 

Wigan Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski, said: “Chris was an unsung hero in 2020. He was the 19th man in near enough every game in the season. 

“At the end of the season, Chris came to me and said that at his age he needed to be playing regularly. With no reserve grade and the cancellation of dual registration, we needed to explore other opportunities for Chris. 

“A chance to be a starting player for London has arisen and we all feel that it is the right thing for Chris at this time. 

“He will have a year in the capital and then return to Wigan in 2022. He will be a great addition to Danny Ward’s London Broncos team.”
