Ross rejects approach from London
FORMER Penrith, Rabbitohs and Cronulla prop Ben Ross has denied he will return from retirement to sign with the London Broncos.
On Friday, the London-based club said it had convinced Ross, who grew up on the Sunshine Coast, to return to football after his retirement at the end of last season.
The six-time Maroons player said he had been tempted but decided against the move.
The 33-year-old took to Twitter yesterday to explain what had transpired.
"To hear I have signed with London Broncos is not the truth. They had offered a contract and Tony Rea was a complete professional," Ross said.
"I have now decided to stay in Australia and follow my passion for community welfare. More will be explained on Monday."
