Warrington snap up highly-rated London Broncos prop

Warrington have confirmed the signing of London Broncos prop Rob Butler on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old has been a standout player for Danny Ward’s side since breaking into the first team in 2018, even earning a call-up to the England Knights squad last Autumn after a stellar debut Super League season.

He becomes the Wolves’ second new recruit for 2021, joining World Cup winner Greg Inglis at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

“I’m buzzing to finally be able to announce the move,” said Butler. “It’s a great opportunity to join a club like Warrington. I’m really looking forward to it and excited to get going.

“I want to be real physical. I want to step up and be the man who comes in and does big hits and plays hard. I’m ready to make my mark. My time at London, and that year in Super League, really gave me my chance to be ready for this.

“Warrington is a club at the top fighting for silverware year in year out and that’s what I want to be a part of and where I want to be.”

Warrington head coach Steve Price added: “I’m really pleased to welcome Rob to the club and he’s a fantastic addition to our pack.

“He’s a big bopper and is someone who plays the game tough. He’s an exciting young player and I feel like there’s a lot of good footy to come from Rob in the years ahead.”
