Leigh Centurions have signed Mark Ioane from fellow Betfred Championship side London Broncos for the 2020 season 

The 28-year-old played over 100 games for the Broncos, including 16 in the Betfred Super League last season. 

Ioane said: “It’s great to be here and I’m really looking forward to the new season. Leigh Centurions are a club that I know all about.

“They’ve done well in the Championship in recent years and of course were in Super League quite recently.

“Knowing a few familiar faces at Leigh will make the transition easier and I can tell already that this is a good bunch of boys, many of whom I have played against during my career.”

Leigh Centurions Head Coach, John Duffy, said: “Mark is a player I have always admired. He did really well at London and has been one of their stand-out players over the last few years.

“We were lucky to have the chance to bring him here and he’s raring to go. He’s very excited to be joining Leigh Centurions and he’s a really big signing for us.”

Leigh Centurions begin their 2020 Betfred Championship season against Dewsbury Rams at the Tetley’s Stadium on Friday 31stJanuary.
