Hat-trick hero Gideon Boafo said London Broncos will be approaching each of the club’s final four Betfred Championship fixtures with a “Grand Final mentality”.
Boafo starred for the Broncos on Sunday afternoon as Sheffield Eagles were beaten 42-12 at the Trailfinders Sports Club, a result which strengthened our position in the division’s play-off frame.
The right-winger registered a devastating hat-trick in the game’s first half to provide Tom Tsang’s men with a platform to build on after the half time break.
Pleased to be part of the squad’s compelling victory, Boafo reported a positive buzz in training this week and said team spirit has reached a new peak.
“The buzz in training has been really good and we’re working extremely hard to make sure we have the best chance of being successful in our remaining games too,” said Boafo. “We’ll approach every game with a Grand Final mentality.
“Sunday was a great result. The boys played especially well in the second half and it was great to record a big win at home, we were very happy afterwards.
“Personally, I was pleased with my performance but still made a few mistakes. We’ve worked hard in training to iron those out, though.
“I feel match fit and that’s credit to the Broncos’ staff who work so hard behind the scenes. It’s easy to feel it in the legs and lungs after a period of not playing but I’m ready for the challenges ahead.”
The Broncos’ Championship campaign continues this weekend with an away trip to Swinton Lions.
Although Sunday’s opponents sit bottom of the 14-strong division, Boafo knows the Lions’ players will be keen to prove a point to Head Coach Allan Coleman.
He added: “Swinton this weekend will be a tough game and we’ve got to be on our best performance from minute one. All the boys are focused, giving it 100% in training and holding each other accountable for the mistakes we make which has generated a good team spirit.
“We’re taking each game as it comes, so we’re in no rush to concentrate on Featherstone right now. But the support of our fans will be crucial in the coming weeks – we want to make them proud of our performances and winning games is the best way to make that happen.”
