Witt heads home


29th November 2013

Half-back Michael Witt has become the latest London Broncos player to acquire a new club after signing a 12-month contract with St George Illawarra.

The 29-year-old has spent the last four seasons in Super League, split between the Broncos and Wrexham-based Crusaders RL, but missed the last six weeks of the 2013 campaign with a calf injury.

A statement from the Sydney club said: "The St George Illawarra Dragons have today confirmed that Michael Witt has agreed to a one-year contract that will see him join the club until at least the end of the 2014 season."

Witt, who can also play full-back, made 90 NRL appearances from 2003-08 with Parramatta, Manly and New Zealand Warriors before briefly switching codes with Christchurch-based Crusaders.

He will report for pre-season training next Thursday at the Dragons, who have also signed England international Gareth Widdop from Melbourne.

Witt is the 16th player to confirm his departure from the Broncos, who are still locked in talks to save the club after they announced their intention to go into administration.
