London Broncos appear to have turned a corner following financial problems last year, and have announced the signing of three Leeds Rhinos players on loan for the season.
The Broncos have completed deals for James Duckworth, Alex Foster and Thomas Minns, with coach Tony Rea bolstering his squad for the new campaign.
The trio all made their league debuts last season in an injury-ridden season for the Rhinos, and they all impressed for last year's third-placed side in the Super League.
"We had identified them and been asking for a few months," Broncos head coach Rea said.
"We'd watched their debuts and watched their performances last year. They were players we wanted around here."
Foster, a second row forward, played eight times last season for Leeds, whilst both Duckworth and Minns featured twice for the Rhinos.
"Last season they showed their potential, with Alex Foster in particular becoming a regular in our side on merit," Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott said.
The trio have been working with the Rhinos so far in pre-season and have developed well in and around the first team squad.
They now move south to play for the Broncos during an exciting period for the capital club, having moved to Barnet FC's ground to play in The Hive in Harrow next season.
