Egodo returns to the South

London Broncos is delighted to confirm the signing and return of the exciting former London Academy and current Castleford Tigers winger Tuoyo Egodo on a two year deal.

Egodo left the club in 2016 to join Castleford Tigers were he spent time on loan at Hemel Stags, Oldham Roughyeds, York City Knights, Newcastle Thunder and Bradford Bulls before returning to break into the first team and make 16 appearances for the Tigers to date.

His debut in Super League came in September 2017 as Castleford Tigers played Hull FC where he scored a Hat Trick in a defeat against the Black and Whites.

The winger originally born in London, who played for London Skolars as a junior, has scored 11 tries in Super League for Castleford including scoring twice in both of the London defeats at The Mend-a-Hose-Jungle this season.

Tuoyo told us, “I’m really excited to get back to London and join the Broncos again. It’s an opportunity to be close to family and friends and something I just couldn’t pass up on.”

“I’d like to say thanks to the coaches, players & staff at Castleford who I have learnt a lot from and have helped me become the player I am today. I would also like to say a big thank you to the Castleford fans for their continuous support over the years.”

“I look forward to wearing the Broncos jersey again and getting started for the 2020 season.”

Head Coach Danny Ward said, “We are pleased Tuoyo has joined us back at the Broncos from next season.”

“He is a player who came through our junior system, have all worked with before and so know what he can bring to the group.”

“It has been good for him to move away, get out of his comfort zone, work with different coaches and mature as a player and a person.”

“Although he’s not done himself any favours scoring loads of tries against us in the last month, we won’t hold that against him and look forward to help continue his development.”

Chairman David Hughes said, “Tuoyo is a prime example of why it is a positive step that the reserve grade is coming back into our sport on a mandatory basis.”

“He was released by the club back in 2016, and to his credit, he has gone away and improved immensely in to the quality player that he is now via loan spells at several clubs and his time at Castleford Tigers.”

“He has shown how to fight your way into a top Super League team and we hope that he continues to fight for his home city when he pulls the London shirt back on next season.”
