Former London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward has taken a new role on the coaching team at rugby union side Rosslyn Park.

Ward left the Broncos by mutual consent in May 2021 following a heavy defeat at the hands of Featherstone which dented their play-off chances.

London Broncos: Danny Ward leaves London Broncos

As a player, Ward enjoyed a 12-year professional career having played for Leeds, Castleford, Hull KR and Harlequins.

Ward was also the last person to coach London in the Super League. He got them there after a 4-2 win at Toronto in the Million Pound Game.

London ultimately went straight back down, despite recording 10 victories. This included memorable victories over St Helens, Wigan and Leeds.

Ward also has links with Rosslyn Park, as London played their behind-closed-doors games in 2021 at the venue.

Rosslyn Park are currently in a good position in National League One. They currently sit second in the table, just two points behind Caldy. They also have a game in hand on them. The winners of the league will get a place in the RFU Championship, one tier below the Premiership.

Ward excited to join Rosslyn Park

Speaking to the club website, Ward said: I’m delighted to be joining Rosslyn Park. I know a few of the guys from my time when coaching at London Broncos and it’s an exciting time to be joining the club.

“I’m looking forward to getting started and helping this group deliver on its potential.

Director of Rugby Kieran Power added: We’re delighted to bring in Danny’s experience to assist with the coaching here at Rosslyn Park, and especially with Danny’s experience recently in winning the Championship with London Broncos.

“He has already added a lot of value in his first week with the club”.
