The club has secured the services of its second Sea Eagle in the shape of exciting three-quarter Nick Bradley-Qalilawa.
The player, whose name has caused many sports commentators over the years to get tongue twisted, is sure to be a great asset to London, and will give London's three-quarter line added starch, experience and potential combinations.
Tony Rea may choose to use NBQ as a centre partner for another former Wests Tiger, Mark O'Halloran, or he may play him on the wing, should the promising Tyrone Smith earn a start with three or four on his back.
NBQ arrived in London on Friday and commenced training today when the squad came together at the Brunel University base in Isleworth.
Coach Tony Rea, who was married just last month, is pleased to get back to business:
"There's been very little time to rest that's for sure as we've been putting our plans together for many weeks now.?
It is nice to see all the new players and new staff together as a group for the first time.?
It's a unique experience for many of these young men who have all made big decisions, and it's a good experience for all of us as the team-building, and hard physical work begins."
It's great to be back up and running and it's nice that the sun has come out to join us for our first day of the campaign. Bright beginnings..."
