London Broncos have confirmed Rhys Williams has signed a two-year contract extension.
THe Welsh international finished as the Championship’s top try scorer with 31 last season and Broncos’ boss Andrew Henderson admits he’s delighted to secure the winger’s services until at least 2019.
“I think the great thing for us now is that we’re getting players who want to play for London, commit to London and see their futures in London,” said Henderson.
“This is Rhys’ third year, and with another two that will mean he’ll have been here for five in total.
“Rhys has been exceptional since he joined the club – he’s had two really strong years, and he’s obviously playing really well again this season and I don’t see that changing.
“I know what he’s capable of and I still think he’s got a lot of years ahead of him. He’s starting to develop now as a senior player within the team.
“Rhys has been phenomenal since he’s been at the club – his try-scoring record proves that. He’s been fantastic for us on the field, his work-rate and the tries that he scores. He’s a true competitor with a will to win.”
Williams added: “I’m happy down here, more than anything. As long as I’m happy where I am and I’m playing consistently, then I’m more than happy to sign.
“London is a great city and not many people get to say they’ve lived here, so to say I’ll have been here for such a long period is incredible.
“I’m delighted to have re-signed. My first year was touch and go, but last year went perfectly. We’ve started a bit scratchy this season, but we’re getting into some form now.
“To the fans I just want to say keep supporting us. It’s been a hard start but we’re playing well now and starting to come back to where we were last year.
“Please get behind us for the back-end of the campaign – the top of the table is so tight that it’s going to be exciting to watch. Hopefully we can kick on and start to break away into the top two.
“I’m very excited to say I’ve signed again and I’m looking forward to the next two years.”
