  1. London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward is happy to be playing behind closed doors games at the clubs First Team Training venue Rosslyn Park and described it as a “big advantage” whilst speaking to Broncos media on Sunday. The Club have had to keep information of the venue for behind closed doors games under wraps for some time due to the Covid approval process implemented by the RFL which included approval from the local Council for Rosslyn Park but Ward was just pleased to have it sorted and his wish to play at the South West London facility. He said “It can only be a positive for us to b
  2. Following a meeting last night of the Dons Trust we are able to offer an update to fans of our club with regard to the discussed move for the London Broncos to Plough Lane, Wimbledon.

What can be said is that following recent meetings, including a visit to the Stadium by our Captain Will Lovell to meet Dons Tr
  3. Following the terrible news last week that former London Broncos player Matt King OBE had passed away the 1st Team’s Leadership group made a request to the club for them to be able to pay their respects throughout the 2021 season to the former London Broncos Academy player. It has been decided that the 1st Team players will carry Matt’s name on the inside of their collar as a permanent reminder of the wonderful work Matt did as a speaker following his tragic accident playing for the club as a 17 year old. Club Captain Will Lovell paid tribute to Matt saying “ I’d like to pass on my condol
  4. London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward has strengthened his pack with the addition of promising young player Titus Gwaze who has signed from Wakefield Trinity.

Firstly, he is a good bloke who has fitted in with the boys and bought into the
  5. London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward had plenty of praise for his First Team squad after completing week 4 of Pre-Season at a very cold Rosslyn Park facility. Speaking to Broncos Media on Friday Ward was in good spirits having seen his players raise the intensity of training to another level despite the restrictions they are currently facing. He told us “It’s been great to have everyone out on the field together, it’s like being back in the School playground when everyone is buzzing to see each other after the holidays, but at the same time the intensity has really gone up.” “It also been re
  6. Agreeing to a loan move, hundreds of miles from their home in the middle of a pandemic, may not have been an ideal move for some players but London Broncos on loan Centre Chris Hankinson has enjoyed his first month in the Capital, and more so the standard of training. The Wigan Warriors player, with the club for the whole of 2021, told Broncos Media that he has been surprised by how well things have gone. Hankinson said “It’s all gone better than expected to be honest. I’ve been able to focus on nothing but training which is really unusual because I would usually have my girlfriend or mat
  7. Broncos Half Back Cory Aston sees the early Challenge Cup Games as the perfect chance to shake off the rust of 2020 but is not too worried about who that is against at this stage. Aston told Broncos Media “I really don’t mind who we play in the First Round of the Cup, we just want to win and get into the second round to be honest.” “These games are a great chance for us to test ourselves and most of the teams will also be rusty so who we play doesn’t matter to me.” Cory’s Dad, Mark, is of course the Head Coach of Championship rivals Sheffield Eagles and in the draw tonight for the First
  8. London Broncos Jonah Varela is enjoying every moment of Pre-Season so far following his step up to the First Team squad from the clubs Academy, including the extra sessions and workload. Varela, who has represented Peru in the Olympic 7’s, was one of Danny Ward’s first signings for 2021 and he told londonbroncosrl.com that he is finding life with the Elite squad very different to training with the Academy on an evening after College.

  10. London Broncos Coach Tom Tsang could be forgiven for being frustrated with the developments of 2020 which saw his Reserve side have their season cut short before it really began and finding out that there will be no Reserve competition in 2021. However speaking to londonbroncosrl.com Tsang was upbeat and full of enthusiasm after a lengthy lay off and a change of role at the club. The former Coventry Head Coach is now operating in a dual role as a member of the First Team Coaching staff and the Head Coach of the Broncos Academy side and he explained this gave him a great opportunity to work
