Those who watched the World Cup will know of him and after playing his backside off for several years, Dom Nasso has been rewarded with a Super League contract – a 2-year deal with the London Broncos.

The Australian-born hooker has represented the Azzurri seven times and after previous stints in the NRL with the Parramatta Eels and the Manly Sea Eagles and a stint with French side Avignon, the challenge is a new one for him.

There are several acquaintances of his at his new club, with Nasso having played alongside Liam Foran at Manly and he played under Broncos coach Joey Grima in the Parramatta district.

Having worked with Nasso before, Grima knows exactly what to expect from the talented hooker and looks forward to the chance to work with him again.

“I’ve coached Ray for five years in the Parramatta district as an up-and-coming first grader,” Grima said.

“Having had a relationship with him, he knows the style of play that I like to play. He’ll be very important and an integral part of the formation I want to run next year.

“Ray’s had a tremendous career, particularly at the back end of last year and the RLWC2013 where he was involved in the Italian side. He was voted the Italian player of the tournament and players such as Anthony Minichiello felt that he was capable of playing in the NRL.”

Although he did not taste an NRL experience, his time at Avignon made it easier for the Broncos to sign him.

“That didn’t come to fruition, however, and he decided to stay in France and this was an outstanding chance for us to sign him,” said Grima.

“He comes with a lot of experience both offensively and defensively, he’s going to be a huge asset and more so to the culture we’re going to get off the field as much as on the field.”

Having spoken with Grima about the move, it was one that Nasso knew was the right fit for him and his career moving forward.

“I’m very happy and looking forward to playing next season for the Broncos. I spoke with Joey about his goals and plans next season and the future and it’s all very exciting,” said Nasso.

“Having been coached by Joey when I was younger and speaking to him about what he wants to do with the club I thought it would be a good fit for me. I’m looking forward to being part of the club as it looks to move forward.

“It was an awesome experience playing in the UK during RLWC 2013 and it’s something I will never forget. I really enjoyed playing in the UK so I was keen to come back here.”
