Grima pleased with Broncos recruitment

London Broncos head coach Joey Grima is delighted with the 26-man squad he has assembled for 2015.

The group of players includes experienced Super League names such a Rhys Lovegrove and Rhys Williams, young Scotland internationals like Oscar Thomas and Harvey Burnett, international names such as Wes Naiqama and Ray Nasso, and Championship stalwarts like Ben Hellewell.

Grima will also be working with the wily and experienced former Scotland and Sheffield hooker Andrew Henderson as his assistant coach.

“Having 26-players gives us that luxury of putting specialist players in specialist positions as well as having the versatility of having utility players in the squad,” said Grima.

“We’ve got a great balance of maturity and experience along with excitement and youth. We’ve got a good cross section of people from the UK and overseas but more so a great cross section of people that have been developed from within.

“We’ve got nine players that have come through the Broncos rugby league training programme.

“It’s very refreshing and exciting that we’re creating opportunities and a genuine pathway for our players.”
