Leigh Centurions have secured the services of prop forward Mark Ioane from London Broncos.

The 28-year-old former Gold Coast Titans and St George Illawarra forward has swapped the Big Capital for Leigh for the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

The Auckland-born player was at London for four seasons and played a massive part in the Broncos gaining promotion to Super League.

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.

“I’m a player who likes to play long minutes and throw the ball around – hopefully I can help take the team forward.”
