Duo commit to Broncos
Australian winger Michael Robertson has signed a new two-year contract with London Broncos.
The 29-year-old, who played for Scotland in the 2008 World Cup, joined the Broncos from NRL champions Manly Sea Eagles in the winter, initially on a 12-month deal, but has now committed himself to the club until the end of 2014.
“I’ve been really impressed since coming here,” he said. “It’s a very professional club and I’ve enjoyed my time here so far.
“We may not be meeting people’s expectations right now but I really believe that we can kick on for the rest of the season and that will put us in good stead going forward.”
London have also handed recent signing Scott Wheeldon a new two-year deal.
The 26-year-old prop joined the club last month after being released by Hull KR and has appeared in their last seven matches.
“I was delighted to get it signed,” said Wheeldon. “I’ve enjoyed playing down here. I’m playing every week and that’s what I came to do.
“The players and staff here are great. We need to finish the season strongly and we’ll go on from there.”
London coach Rob Powell said: “Scott’s been a great addition since signing. He’s one of the most consistent performers and we’re glad to extend his contract, which is fully deserved.
“Michael has been a great influence around the squad since he’s been here. He’s a good leader and a good footballer too. He is the sort of person who will help the club to build and develop going forward.”
