Former Wigan prop leaves new club for personal reasons

London Broncos can confirm Romain Navarrete has been released from his contract to enable him to return to his family in France. 

The 27-year-old prop signed for the Broncos from Wigan in January and was a regular in our matchday squad.

His return to France signals the end of a five-year stay in the UK during which time he also played for Wigan Warriors, Swinton Lions and Wakefield Trinity.

Tom Tsang, interim head coach of London Broncos, said: “We’d like to thank Romain for his contribution to London Broncos this season.

“Despite the challenges of COVID-19 and living away from his homeland, Romain applied himself professionally across all levels of the club. He leaves the Broncos with our very best wishes for the future.”

Navarrete added: “I would like to thank Jason and David for granting me a release from London Broncos. It has been difficult over the last 18 months with COVID-19 and not seeing my family due to all the restrictions and I am looking forward to going home to France.

“Thank you to all the boys, the coaching staff and the fans, and I wish you all the best for the rest of the season.”
