Atkins, a 6ft 2 ins (188cm), 15st 2 lbs(96kg) centre or wing, said: “I’m really looking forward to the 2014 season with the Broncos. Playing abroad in the Super League is something I have always wanted to achieve.
“I’m very excited about playing with such a young and talented squad of guys and although the pre-season has been a bit unorthodox,we will all work hard together and embrace the challenges and opportunities throughout the year.
“I have no doubt I will learn a lot from all the playing group, staff and supporters. Exciting times ahead.”
Broncos head coach Tony Rea said: “He’s an experienced outside back, a really accomplished player who has been highly regarded in the NRL over a long period of time.”
Atkins has just arrived in London to join the squad.
