The London Broncos have signed Melbourne's controversial forward, Danny Williams, even though they will not be able to play him until April.

Williams still has nine games to serve of an 18-match ban, imposed in Australia for what was described as one of the worst incidents of its type in recent years. He was suspended for a blind-side punch on Wests Tigers' Mark O'Neill, but London have rescued his career with a one-year contract.

Nathan Blacklock has arrived two weeks early for pre-season training at Hull, hoping to play in the pre-season friendly against Hull KR on 9 January.

The new Blackpool Panthers, who replace Chorley in National League 2, have agreed a two-year lease to play at Bloomfield Road, home of Blackpool FC.

The Rugby League has taken further steps to avoid future betting scandals by entering into an agreement with the online betting company, Betfair, who will advise them about any abnormal patterns of betting.
