London won’t resort to ‘panic buys’

London coach Andrew Henderson says the Broncos won’t be making “panic buys” to strengthen its ahead of the Super 8s.

The Broncos are set for a spot in the Middle 8s as they set in second place in the Championship, five points below league leaders Leigh and five points above third-place Halfiax.

A number of clubs have made signings in anticipation of the start of the Super 8s.

But Henderson told Love Rugby League he won’t be signing anyone “for the sake of it”.

“I’m happy and pleased with the current group of players and what they have achieved so far this season and they will have earned the right for that opportunity once we have secured our place in the Qualifiers,” he said.

“However we are aware we have a small squad so certainly won’t dismiss looking at bringing in a player or two if we believe they will enhance the playing squad and improve our team.

“But there will be no panic buys for the sake of it. Our main focus at present is to ensure we are in the Qualifiers and then we can assess everything once that job is done.”

London have only lost four games this season but defeat came against Leigh for the second time this year on Sunday.

“We were second best on Sunday,” Henderson admitted.

“Leigh were excellent, played with a higher intensity and purpose to their game and challenged us.

“Our defensive attitude wasn’t good enough in the first half but was much improved in the second half which kept the score line respectable and help us win the second half.

“With the ball we weren’t disciplined enough with possession and failed to execute well enough or ask enough questions of the Leigh defence.

“We failed to put Leigh under any sustained pressure to give us a chance.

“It was a harsh reality but one I know the players will learn from and be determined to work harder on moving forward to be better.”
