Craig Gower has signed a one-year extension to his contract with London Broncos, keeping him at the club until the end of 2014.
The 34-year-old Australian half-back made 28 appearances last season, scoring four tries and 27 goals.
Broncos head coach Tony Rea said: "Some people might query signing a player of his age.
"But the fact he played every game apart from one last year is better evidence than his birth certificate."
Read added: "It's not a risk, it's calculated."
Gower is a dual-code international, having played for Australia in rugby league and represented Italy in rugby union.
