Danny Ward: I nearly jumped out the dugout to tackle him myself!

London coach Danny Ward says he felt like tackling Ryan Hampshire himself as his Broncos side eventually thwarted a Wakefield comeback at the weekend.

Super League’s bottom side were cruising to a fourth win of the season at 42-6 after 63 minutes, but in the end held on to win by eight points.

Ward said: “For 70 minutes, it was as good as we’ve been all year.

“I’m still angry about that last 10.

“It was a bit of madness. If (Ryan) Hampshire had run down that touchline one more time, I was going to jump out of the dugout and chop his legs down myself I think.

“We put ourselves under the pump, but overall I’m really pleased, I’d have taken that at the start of the day.

“The platform was laid by the forwards, they did a fantastic job in defence, really worked hard and handled the threat from Wakefield for majority of the game.”

Wakefield scored four tries in as many minutes as the score went from 42-12 in the 73rd minute to 42-34 in the 78th minute.

London now turn their attention to a mouth-watering game against Leeds at the Magic Weekend in Liverpool, knowing a win will lift them off the bottom of the table.
