A London win not far away, claims Farrar

London half-back Ben Farrar doesn’t think a first Broncos win of the season is far away.

The 27-year-old former Manly Sea Eagles and Catalan Dragons star, who signed for the Broncos a few weeks into the season, said: “I’m loving it at the moment, it’s a great place to live and the boys are all really good. We have a young and exciting team that has plenty of potential so hopefully moving forward we can win a few games.

“Personally I’m enjoying playing in the halves, it’s something that isn’t too unfamiliar for me, I’ve played there before. I haven’t really played with Josh [Drinkwater] before so that’s pretty exciting, he’s a talented guy and we’re working hard to improve our combinations.”

The Australian said he relished returning to the south of France at the weekend to play his former club in the Challenge Cup. He said: “It was great to come back to Perpignan and see some old faces. They’ve hit a bit of form the last few weeks so it’s good to see my old team doing well. I have a lot of fond memories and I’m still good friends with a lot of the boys so it will be nice to welcome them to London in a few weeks time.”

Finally, Farrar discussed the tragic accident that saw fellow Newcastle native Alex McKinnon paralysed a fortnight ago.

“It’s tragic what’s happened to him,” he said.

“It’s one of those things that really puts life into perspective, not so much footy, just how lucky we all are to be playing, to come off the field or to lose and you’re filthy, but the poor bloke’s in a bad way and that puts everything into perspective and I’m sure I won’t be the last to be sending best wishes to him and his family.”
