Henderson’s 19 for season opener at Swinton

Andrew Henderson has named 19 to kick off the 2017 Kingstone Press Championship season, facing Swinton Lions at Heywood Road this Sunday.

With five wins from five in the pre-season, Henderson says the London Broncos are raring to go in round one.

“We are looking forward to, and ready for the season to get underway. It’s the first game of the new season, so I expect both teams will be eager, full of energy and excitement.

“Swinton will have built some confidence after a successful season last year back in the Championship, and a successful pre-season campaign. They are well coached by John Duffy and I have been impressed with their recruitment. They play with an attack minded ethos so will certainly ask a lot of questions of our defence.

“However, our team has prepared well throughout the pre-season and all the boys have come together, and are willing to work for each other. They have set their goals as a team and are all excited about the season and opportunities ahead. I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing Swinton and seeing our boys perform on Sunday.”
