Danny Ward: London will fight to the very end

London coach Danny Ward insists his side will give it everything they have got to avoid relegation from Super League this season.

The Broncos gained promotion from the Championship last season after beating Toronto Wolfpack in the Million Pound Game.

Ward’s side started the season well in beating Wakefield, Wigan and Leeds, but they have now lost their last eight matches and sit bottom of the Super League table.

Speaking after their 18-8 defeat at Wigan, Ward said: “We will keep fighting until the very end.

“We played well, we could have got something out of it but we just didn’t take our opportunities at crucial times. Wigan went up a gear in the second half and we didn’t go with them, so that period probably cost us.

“We are only halfway through the season and nothing is won in May. We have got a two-week period now before we are playing again, so the boys can have a bit of time off because we have played four games in 14 days, which is a fair effort from them.

“The effort has been there even though we haven’t come away with any points. Looking back at it, not being in the Challenge Cup next week is probably a relief now and it gives us chance to work on some things in training and get smiles back on our faces again.

Rugby Football League chief executive Ralph Rimmer has revealed the governing body will consider dropping the busy Easter schedule in 2020.

On the Easter period, Ward added: “Easter is easy for coaches because we don’t have to do anything!

“We just turn up, do a bit of touch and pass and then we play, so Easter is pretty easy for coaches.

“I’m not going to whinge too much about it because it is what it is. It’s Easter, it’s been like that forever, but if they want to change it then so be it.”
