WARRINGTON Wolves have confirmed the signing of forward Rob Butler from London Broncos.
Butler, 22, represented England Knights last autumn and has played 40 times for the Broncos, including during their 2019 season in Super League.
He said: “I’m buzzing to finally be able to announce the move. It’s a great opportunity to join a club like Warrington. I’m really looking forward to it and excited to get going.
“My time at London, and that year in Super League, really gave me my chance to be ready for this.
“Warrington is a club at the top fighting for silverware year in year out and that’s what I want to be a part of and where I want to be.”
The Kent-born prop is a former team-mate of Matt Davis, who recently signed a new two-year deal at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
He becomes the club’s second new signing for 2021, after the capture of former Australia international Greg Inglis.
Wolves coach Steve Price added: “I’m really pleased to welcome Rob to the club and he’s a fantastic addition to our pack.
“He’s a big bopper and is someone who plays the game tough. He’s an exciting young player and I feel like there’s a lot of good footy to come from Rob in the years ahead.”
