Speaking on the signing, London Broncos Director of Rugby & Performance Mike Eccles said;

“Jack is a terrific player that has been on the cusp of the NRL for some time now. I’m delighted that he has decided now is the right time to come to England and take on the Super League with us.

“Jack has great leadership qualities and is very much a general of a player. His organisational skills and strong kicking game will be a real asset for us.”

Last season in the Queensland Cup Campagnolo was named in the team of the season as he ended the year as the competition’s second-highest points scorer, kicking 90 goals and scoring three tries.

“I’m really excited to get over and work with Mike and the boys. Hopefully I add some of my knowledge and leadership to the side while learning on the way. After a great season last year I’m sure we can carry on from that and have a big 2024!”
