London Broncos Head Coach Danny Ward has been impressed by the squad’s attitude in training ahead of Saturday’s Betfred Championship fixture at home to Oldham (2pm).
The Broncos have been without a game since the club’s reverse against Halifax Panthers three weeks ago, leaving Ward and his team of coaching staff with invaluable time to work on the training field.
The players’ response to the Broncos’ defeat has been strong and Ward said everyone is focused on the weekend’s opportunity to register some league points.
He said: “We’re seeing plenty of positives from having uninterrupted time on the training field.
“The last three weeks could be viewed as frustrating given we haven’t played in so long, but equally if we had a busy schedule it would be easy to complain also. We did not perform well against Halifax and we nipped that result in the bud pretty quickly.
“Our squad’s response to losing a match is always good, and as soon as we put the result to bed on Monday morning in training not another word has been said. We’re focussed on Oldham now and determined to deliver the goods.”
Ward will face his former Leeds Rhinos teammate and current Oldham Head Coach Matt Diskin on Saturday. The pair played together at Rhinos for six seasons and collectively made almost 300 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit.
“Matt’s a good friend of mine and you can guarantee Oldham will be well-coached for this one,” said Danny. “I was impressed by their win at home to Swinton in the first round of fixtures and they’re a very capable club at this level.
“They’re tough, hungry and packed with players holding good experience at this level. If we let our guard down, we will be there for the taking so we must be focused for every minute.
“Last summer, we of course hoped to be in a position to welcome crowds to our games at the start of this season.
“Unfortunately, that hasn’t been possible but we’re very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back soon. Although the supporters won’t be attending physically on Saturday, we know they’ll be cheering on from home which we are forever thankful for.”
