London Broncos’ acting head coach Tom Tsang said he was proud of the squad’s response, following a comprehensive victory at the weekend. 

The Broncos overcame York City Knights 50-22 in the Betfred Championship at the Trailfinders Sports Club. 

It was Tsang’s first match in charge following the departure of Danny Ward after the squad’s 63-14 defeat at Featherstone Rovers. The squad delivered an excellent performance leaving Tsang with a sense of pride and a strong platform to build on. 

He said: “It was a really testing week and the focus was on pulling the group closer together. I am proud of how the players responded and the win and the nature of the win.”

Tsang was pleased with the defensive performance and to see the try scoring shared across the squad. 

Both Will Lovell and Chris Hankinson scored two tries each, while Josh Hodson, Abbas Miski, Jacob Jones and Oli Leyland all crossing the whitewash with Chris Hankinson successfully kicking the conversions. Leyland’s try was a particular highlight, as his first professional try of his career.  

“It was a strong performance, and it gives us a lot of confidence,” added Tsang. “It is a good starting point for moving forward for the rest of the season.”

The Broncos who remain fifth in the Betfred Championship league table now have a break in fixtures before hosting Widnes Vikings on July 25th
