Danny Ward: London relishing busy Easter period

Danny Ward insists London are not going to make excuses about the busy Easter period, with the Broncos enjoying the challenges of Super League so far. 

The Broncos currently sit second-bottom in the Super League, having won three out of their first 10 games back in the top-flight.

London face Catalans Dragons and Huddersfield Giants in the space of four days over Easter, but Ward is refusing to make any excuses as his side prepares to enter the busy schedule.

Speaking after their 48-12 loss at Warrington Wolves, Ward told loverugbyleague.com: “It’s a tough schedule but there’s tougher jobs out there in the world.

“We could be on the frontline or working in A&E or something like that. Playing rugby league is the best job in the world so we will just take it game by game.

“Super League has been everything we’ve expected and more so far. It’s been awesome, the challenges that we face every week have been brilliant for us as coaches.

“We want to challenge ourselves against the best teams and coaches in world rugby league. Every member of the 17 has got to be on it every week. I’ve been proud of the boys in what they’ve been doing so far.”

But the Broncos face a tough trip to The Shay against Championship side Halifax in the Challenge Cup on Thursday night.

And Ward wants a Cup run for the capital club, he added: “We want to take the Cup as it is.

“I love the Challenge Cup. It is awesome, I love it. It’ll be a nice little break away from Super League, but we are taking the Cup seriously.

“We know Halifax are going to be really tough. We’ve had some battles with them over the last few years. They’ve done us a few times and it’s a difficult place to go.

“They’ll be bang up for it and we’ve got to build on this and be at our best. Hopefully we will put in a good performance and get into the next round.”
