Experienced back row Rhys Curran has committed his future to the Broncos by signing a contract with the Club that will also see him join Jermaine Coleman’s coaching staff.
The forward joined the Broncos in 2020 following a move from Toulouse where he played over 100 games for the French Club. Curran was a product of the Wests Tigers Junior system in Australia and the 32 year old will now be passing on his knowledge to the younger players within the Broncos squad.
Speaking on the extention of Rhys’ contract London Broncos Head Coach Jermaine Coleman made it clear that having Curran around in 2022 was vital to his plans.
He said “Rhys has a wealth of experience and we will be using that to the max this year. He plays the game tough and executes his role expertly.”
“I cannot wait to work with him and use his experience of the game to help the group. His mentality is going to be vital to our culture this year.”
During the lockdown of 2020 Rhys made the decision to train as an Electrician and has recently started work in this field following the Clubs move to a part time squad for the forseeable future.
It is because of this transition the move to part-time suited Curran and he told us this became an ideal scenario for him as he looks to enter the next phase of his life.
Curran said “I was really keen to give the part-time thing a go this year as I am not getting any younger and being a semi-pro player allows me to focus on other things in my life as well as the Rugby.”
“I’m looking forward to assisting Jermaine and giving some of the younger blokes a hand as they come through and learn their trade in the early stages of their Rugby League careers.”
