Martin agrees Warriors switch
London Broncos' Tony Martin
Tony Martin has had two spells with the Broncos
London Broncos centre Tony Martin will join the New Zealand Warriors next season.

The former Melbourne Storm player has agreed a three-year deal with the Australian National Rugby League team.

Martin was out of contract at the end of the season and had been interested in returning to the NRL after a two-year absence.

"Daniel Anderson (coach) and I are very excited about Tony being with the club for at least the next three seasons," Warriors chief executive Mick Watson told the club's official website.

"We were initially interested in talking to Tony two years ago but the timing wasn't quite right.

"The skill-set that Tony will bring to the club is three-fold. Tony has pace, is tenacious and consistent in defence, and is a proven goal-kicker with a current success rate of over 80% in Super League."

Australian Martin, who turns 25 this week, has enjoyed two stints in London since beginning his career with the Brisbane Broncos.

He returned to the capital in 2001 after winning the NRL title with the Storm. He has scored over 500 points for the Broncos in his two spells with the club.
