London Broncos have received a triple injury boost with the return of three long-term absentees.
Liam Colbon, Shane Rodney and Matt Cook returned on Thursday for pre-season training after missing the last three months of the 2012 season.
Australian second rower Rodney, who joined the Broncos after playing in the 2011 NRL Grand Final for Manly Sea Eagles, had been out since last June with a neck injury.
Back rower Cook had knee surgery after an anterior cruciate ligament tear restricted him to just 13 appearances in 2012 but has started running again.
And former Wigan winger Colbon, who made just eight appearances after joining the club from Hull KR, has successfully undergone a shoulder re-construction.
Broncos' head physiotherapist Cerian Parham said: "Liam has worked very hard with both the medical and conditioning staff throughout his rehab and during the off-season to ensure he is in a good place to start the season."
