London Broncos Rugby League can confirm the signature of Cronulla Shark, Junior Roqica, on a one-year deal – with an option to extend – subject to visa approval.

At only 25, the talented prop/second rower’s CV already makes for impressive reading – Roqica played with West Tigers from 2008-2011, before spending the 2012 season with Canterbury Bulldogs, and finally signing in 2013 with the Cronulla Sharks, the reigning NRL Premiers.

Roqica made the 2009 Australian Schoolboys squad, and, with his Fijian heritage, represented the national side in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup squad – scoring a try in Fiji’s quarter-final victory against Samoa – and has since been a mainstay in the squad.

“I’m really looking forward to the move to London – it’s a big change for me, but one I’m really excited about,” said Roqica.

“I’m ready for something different in my career and I’m looking forward to a new start, but I’ll always be thankful to the Sharks for giving me this opportunity. I’ve loved my time with the boys.

“The Broncos have been pretty clear in what their goal is – they’re a club fighting for promotion back to Super League. They’re working very hard towards that goal, and it’s one I’m really looking forward to getting behind.”

  1. Good one ZT, you got me again.

    I figured it was the Brisbane variety of Bronco.

    Sharkies lose a bit more depth having already lost Gagan and Sene-Lafao and McIllwrick from the ressies.

  2. “…..the talented prop/second rower’s CV already makes for impressive reading…..”

    A tad over the top???

    Floating from club to club after playing Australian Schoolboys 7 years ago, without securing regular first grade is not ‘impressive’.

    Good luck to him though – gets to see the world playing football.
