Ward ready for London to take on favourites tag after Toronto hammering

Danny Ward believes his side are ready to take on the ‘favourites’ tag in the Championship after London’s stunning win over Toronto.

The Broncos ended the Wolfpack’s unbeaten start to the season in emphatic style as they dispatched of Paul Rowley’s side 47-16.

It was Toronto’s heaviest defeat in their short history and leaves London as the only unbeaten side left in the competition.

Regarded as top four outsiders at the start of the year, the Broncos have quickly ascended the Championship pecking order, and Ward is ready to take on the challenge involved with that.

“If that’s the label everyone is going to give us then we’ve got to (be ready),” he said.

“We’ve got to rise to that challenge and it’s a new challenge. The first few weeks we were the underdogs and now it’s a different kettle of fish that we’re at the top as everyone wants to knock us off.”

On the performance, he said: “I’m very pleased. I think it was one of those days that everything came off for us. We went away from the plan at times but that just seemed to come off today.

“I think we could have been better with the ball but we put Toronto under pressure and things just didn’t come off for them today. It was one of those games that we were hot. We put them under the pump a little bit but they’ll be back stronger and we can fix up areas too.”
