London land Warrington forward Evans

London Broncos have confirmed the signing of Warrington forward Ben Evans, as confirmed in League Express last month.

The 23-year-old most recently spent time on loan at Leigh Centurions after struggling for opportunities in the Wolves first-team throughout the year.

Evans, who featured for Wales in the 2013 World Cup, says he is looking forward to a new challenge.

“I had an amazing time with the Wolves and am very grateful for the opportunity the club gave me, and can’t thank the players and staff enough for my time there,” he commented.

“I’m ready for a new challenge now, and really looking forward to the move down south. I had a taste of the Championship after my loan with the Centurions this season, and it’s a very strong competition, now made even more exciting next year with the arrivals of Hull KR and Toulouse.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the boys in pre-season, and the start of a new chapter.”

Head coach Andrew Henderson added: “Ben is another strong addition to our 2017 squad, he is a very industrious and robust prop. Even though he is still relatively young, he is already a capped Welsh international, and has League One, Championship and Super League experience – that’s every level of professional rugby league played in this country.

“He’s very much looking forward to the move to London, and the challenge of getting us back to Super League. Ben certainly has the right attitude we look for in our players and believes in playing his part in growing the game in the south of England.

“I believe in our coaching programme and feel Ben will improve under Danny, Jamie and myself and we’re really looking forward to hopefully bringing out his best in his time with the London Broncos. I’m really pleased with the way our 2017 squad is taking shape.”
