Super League forward makes immediate transfer

London Broncos have been making a real statement lately.

Not only did they defeat one of the favourites for promotion at the Summer Bash by defeating Toulouse Olympique 14-10 but their transfer business lately has cemented them as the dark horses for promotion.

They started this business with the signing of former NRL star, New Zealand international and Catalans Dragons centre Dean Whare.

Whare left for the Elite One Championship last year and was believed to be a target of Wigan Warriors at one point.

The centre will be joined by former NRL and State of Origin star Corey Norman who left Toulouse Olympique at the end of last season to also ply his trade in the French Elite One Championship.

Now the duo will be joined by reinforcements in the pack from Rob Butler.

Butler started his career at London prior to joining Warrington Wolves before a move to Wakefield Trinity.

Butler will now return home as he joins the Broncos.

He has also represented the likes of London Skolars, Coventry Bears, Leigh Leopards (then Leigh Centurions) and Bradford Bulls on loan.

Butler has also played for England Knights in the past and is a major signing for the play-off chasing Broncos.
