London Broncos head coach Joe Grima says his team have made a statement of intent by signing Richie Mathers.
Grima is delighted to have got the seasoned veteran ahead of the club's first season in the Championship.
He said: "This signing is an indication of how serious we are about where we want to be in 2015. He will be one of the highest profile players in the Championship next season."
Broncos have signed the experienced full-back from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on a two-year-deal and the 30-year-old has played for six top teams in both England and Australia, during a 12-year career.
The Challenge Cup winner says the move to the capital is one that excites him and he's relishing the challenge.
He said: "Ive always enjoyed being down in London. I never really thought I would get the opportunity to play down here, but I'm excited by the challenge."
The former England international also believes that the Broncos relegation to the Championship will ultimately be better for the club in the long run.
"I do believe that a winning London side will attract the fans and I've grown up playing against some great London side," he added.
Mathers will join his new club in November after the conclusion of the current season.
Broncos have no game this weekend with the Challenge Cup semi-finals taking place.
