Slyney and Farrar to miss the rest of the season

Yesterday, 01:37 PM

London Broncos can confirm that Nick Slyney and Ben Farrar will miss the remainder of the season through injury.

Nick Slyney had a recurrence of the pectoral injury he suffered in round two of the Kingstone Press Championship and has undergone surgery for a  second time. Ben Farrar sustained an injury in training and has been for scans that revealed an ACL injury. Farrar has undergone surgery today for an ACL reconstruction.

Head coach Andrew Henderson said: “It’s disappointing to lose Nick when he was so close to a return to action and Ben Farrar has played in the majority of games this year.

“We have back-up in these areas and Sean Morris is still pushing hard for a place and he’ll get a shot at some point this season. However we are still on the look out for cover in the forwards and more so now that Nick will miss the rest of the season.”

Lovegrove heaps praise on young London stars

26 May 2015 - 09:14 AM

Following the Broncos win over Sheffield Eagles at Summer Bash, experienced forward Rhys Lovegrove was keen to also heap the praise on the younger Broncos stars.

“We have got a very young squad so it is great to give some confidence to some of these young boys because the talent is there, everyone knows that London produce talent it’s just a matter of transitioning that into a team,” said Lovegorve.

“We can give the platform for those young kids to kick on and play well and hopefully they can drag us through.”

Broncos blazed to a superb 46-6 victory over the Eagles in the sunshine at Bloomfield Road with Oscar Thomas bagging a hat-trick on his return to action and was just one of the youngsters Lovegrove was eager to tribute.

“Oscar Thomas has been doing well and training hard, but they all train well. Toby Everett, Jon Wallace, Erjon Dollapi all the young boys, Iliess Macani is another one who goes a little bit unnoticed but he plays a lot of footy.

“As long as they keep taking one week at a time and training hard and competing against each other they will keep improving.”

After defeat last time out against Featherstone Rovers, Lovegrove and all the Broncos players wanted to make a statement at the Summer Bash.

“It was more of a statement for each other, we had a disappointing loss and I think we would be kidding ourselves and kidding the fans if we said we have been consistent this year. So we had a bit of a discussion at training and we really want to turn it around and we are at the middle point of the season and we want to draw a line under that and turn the season around.”

“We changed our outlook at training and touch wood it looked like we had a good result today so the key will be to continue on doing that.”

The victory against Sheffield Eagles has put Broncos back in the race up the Kingstone Press Championship table and Lovegrove knew that the victory on Saturday was vital.

“It was a big game for us, I think we are in that position mid-table where there are a lot of teams that scrapping for points now and we are probably a bit behind now, we prepped for this game for the last two weeks because we knew it was a bit game for us.”

Lovegrove also praised player/coach Andrew Henderson’s display and explained why it worked so well on the pitch.

“Obviously Hendo had a crack this week and Thacks (Jamie Thackray) is still running about but it is important that we have blokes like that to come in and just steady the ship a little bit. They add a bit of game awareness to the game for the young blokes because they can get a bit excited at times and they are there to sort of reign them in so to speak.

“It was good to see Hendo wind back the years and have a go but the reason why it worked is because he has so much respect as a coach. He has really made us into a team that are a close knit group here and that is what we work on.”

Hat-trick hero Thomas praises team-mates for tries

24 May 2015 - 09:33 AM

Hat-trick hero Oscar Thomas says the team laid the platform for him to score at Summer Bash and he wants the team need the same attitude next Sunday against Bradford Bulls.

The Broncos played their best game of the season and defeated Sheffield Eagles 46-6 in front of a carnival crowd in Blackpool and 21-year-old Thomas topped off a hat-trick of tries with the man of the match performance on Sky Sports.

“The performance was definitely needed coming off a few tough weeks,” said Thomas. “I think going on towards the back end of the season we need to keep more consistency in our performances so we can reach the play-offs.

“It’s good to have those sorts of games where you get tries but the boys set the platform for me, I just finished them off.

“It’s good to have games like that on a big stage as it helps the teams up their game. We can enjoy the win over the rest of the weekend and come back to training and prepare for a big game against Bradford and we need the two points again. If we come out with the same attitude again, start well and get points on the board the game will take care of itself.

“I did have a bit of banter with someone on Twitter and said I would get a hat-trick but I didn’t actually think it would happen.”
