New Signing Announcement – Rhys Curran

London Broncos is delighted to be able to announce the signing of Rhys Curran from Toulouse Olympique on a 2 year deal.

The Australian born French International came through the system at Wests Tigers before finally starting his career in France with Villeneuve in 2012.

While in the Australian system Curran played under former Hull KR and new Widnes Head Coach, Tim Sheens, whilst playing alongside names such as Jacob Miller (Wakefield Trinity) and former Broncos player Junior Roqica.

Curran signed for Toulouse Olympique at the end of the 2015 season and has become a pivotal player in their second row, playing 95 times and scoring 52 tries in the process.

Curran has also played on the International stage for France on 3 occasions scoring one try.

Rhys told us, “I am really looking forward to getting over and meeting everybody now and getting stuck in to pre season training with the boys.”

“I have spoken to Will Barthau and Ben Evans about London and both have said what a professional club it is with a great bunch of boys.”

“After meeting Danny Ward and playing against London over the last few years it has made me really excited about working with everyone at the club. ”

“As for Toulouse, I would like to thank them for granting me an early release from my contract and understanding my decision in wanting to change clubs. But most of all for the good memories over the last four years there.”

London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward said, ““Rhys has been one of the standout back rowers in the comp for the last few years and we are looking forward to him joining the Broncos.”

Broncos Chairman, David Hughes was delighted to capture the services of Curran, “Rhys is a player we have been watching now for sometime and we are delighted to get this deal over the line. His work rate and professionalism are second to none and he will most definitely fit into the side Danny Ward is re-building here in the capital. He brings with him a lot of experience at this level and I look forward to seeing him out on the park in a Broncos jersey.”
