London broncos' busy pre-season recruitment has continued with the signing of Ben Ross.

The experienced prop has come out of retirement to sign a one-year deal with the Broncos, who have also confirmed the expected arrival of Denny Solomona from Melbourne Storm.

Ross played for four National Rugby league clubs in Australia and made six State of Origin appearances before calling it a day last year.

Rea told the Broncos website: "He retired, but the word going around Australia was that he didn't really want to. We made a phone call and it was the easiest deal we've ever done.

"The guy was so hungry to keep playing. If someone has retired and you've got to drag them out, that usually means a week of talking to the wife and kids but this was done in an hour.

"This was a bloke who wanted to play. He's a meat and potatoes prop who will drive you forward and gets all his jobs done."

Rea has also backed Solomona to make a name for himself in Super League following his arrival from Melbourne, where his path to the first team was blocked by Australia full-back Billy Slater.

He said: "Denny is a talented individual who has been really brave in his decision to come here. This is a way of putting himself out on his own stage.

"He had a contract at Melbourne, which he left to join us, and had the full support of Melbourne and the Broncos to do that."

The Broncos have now brought in five permanent signings and three loan players as they prepare for the new season.
