New London Broncos Rugby League co-captain Nick Slyney says he is honoured to be captaining the capital side in their first pre-season friendly this Saturday vs Catalan Dragons, (kick-off 5pm local time).
“It’s a massive honour to be captaining the team along with Richie Mathers,” said Slyney. “I want to learn as much as I can from Richie. Obviously he’s been around a bit and has a lot of experience that I can pick up on.
“I’ll just play the same way, just try and take a bit more of a mentoring role with the younger guys.”
Slyney says the squad have had a good week in training and are looking forward to the trip away.
“It’s been a good week, we’ve had something to look forward to rather than week in week out of pre-season training. It’s going to be good, it’s our first trip away as a group.”
