London Broncos have signed Glenn Riley and Brad Dwyer from Warrington Wolves for the 2015 Kingstone Press Championship season.
Riley has signed a one-year contract with the capital club while Dwyer has joined on a season-long loan.
Dwyer, 21, has featured in 10 games for Warrington this season but opportunities will be hindered next year following the capture of England international Daryl Clark while Riley has played in 12 and he has also been on dual-registration with Swinton Lions.
“I’m looking forward to the different challenges that joining London will throw at me,” Dwyer told the club’s official website.
“Playing regular consistent rugby is something I haven't had and hopefully I'll get. Also moving away from home to London and growing up is an exciting change for me."
I was happy to join the Broncos because it's an opportunity to test myself and put me out of my comfort zone. The move will present new challenges both as a player and as a person.
"I had a chat with Tony Smith and we both decided that I needed to be playing regular rugby next season and that I was going to struggle getting that at Warrington.
“After speaking to Joey I knew that this would probably be the best move for my development. Joey was a big factor for me. When I met with him he got me excited to be a part of what he was aiming to achieve with London, he said all the right things.”
Riley commented: “I'm really looking forward to joining the Broncos for the year, it's a big opportunity to get some quality game time on a regular basis and with the new structure in place I think it could be an exciting year.
"I was happy to join the Broncos because it's an opportunity to test myself and put me out of my comfort zone. The move will present new challenges both as a player and as a person.
"Joey's enthusiasm and passion was also another big reason why I chose London and the plans he has in place to achieve the winning culture really stood out.”
Grima concluded: “Coming from the Warrington system under Tony Smith ensures that the standards will be high in both players and they will match the culture we are creating here at the Broncos.
“I've been impressed by both Brad and Glenn as their level of maturity exceeds their actual age and they will help us build the culture at the Broncos.”
