London Skolars have signed four London Broncos players on dual registration.

Lamont Bryan, Ben Bolger and Rob Thomas all played for Skolars on loan last season and between them they have played 55 games for Broncos. They are joined by 20-year-old centre Joe Ridley, who has yet to make his Super League debut.

Coach Joe Mbu is enthusiastic about the arrangement and said: “Lamont, Ben and Rob all performed well for us last season when they weren’t playing for Quins and I’m looking forward to working with them again.

"Joe is another great talent and as he comes from Essex originally, I’m sure he’ll relish the chance to play in North East London.

"With Northern Rail Cup games against Batley and Halifax, two of the top sides in the Championship, having that Super League experience in the side will be valuable to us.”

Bryan, Bolger and Thomas all played in Sunday’s 50-16 defeat at Batley Bulldogs.

One of the Skolars making his debut in that game was Lameck Juma, who became the 250th player to represent the Skolars since they moved up to the professional ranks in 2003.
