Henderson encouraged by Leigh performance

Interim head coach Andrew Henderson says he was encouraged by the performance of the side against top of the table Leigh Centurions on Sunday.

Broncos were defeated 25-12 but performed well having lost a number of first team players to injury. Henderson was overseeing the team for the first time in the absence of Joey Grima who stepped down from the head coach role on Monday.

“I certainly think it’s encouraging, there’s encouraging signs,” Henderson told Broncos TV. “We certainly haven’t been as good as what we’ve needed to be in recent weeks, we’ve been pretty disappointed as a group.”

“For the first time we looked like we were creating opportunities, we had some good attacking shape at times and I must admit I thought defensively we were very good for large parts of the game.

“The big ones for me were the young forwards who came up against a very established and physical Leigh pack and I thought young Jon Wallace, young Erjon Dollapi really stood up in the middle.

“Brad Dwyer was outstanding at nine and was always a threat coming out of dummy half and defensively he was excellent and played large minutes. Young Toby (Everett) and Wicksy (Joel Wicks) came off the bench and done their job as well, even Iliess Macani at the end came on for the injured Richie Mathers, I thought he came on and contributed, as did everybody.”

Henderson will name his squad on Friday to take on Workington at The Hive on Sunday 8th March, kick-off 3pm. For tickets visit https://www.venuetoolbox.com/londonbroncos and use ‘EARLYBIRD-WORKINGTON‘ for 20% off adult tickets when purchasing in advance.
