London Broncos coach Danny Ward targets Super League return in 2021

London Broncos coach Danny Ward has assured his side will return to Super League after dropping their struggle stronger.
Ward’s men defied all expectations by being aggressive during their first season back but it all came to an end with a defeat at Wakefield.
„They have done themselves happy,“ said Ward, who will remain with London back into the Championship in 2020. „Unfortunately we just were not good enough.
„But it’s been outstanding to work with this group of gamers. It’s a small blip in the street and we’ll come back stronger.“
London started on issues with Hull KR, Huddersfield and Wakefield but in bottom place gap.
They knew they had to win to avoid the fall but a tightly-contested first half ended from Danny Brough after a 24th-minute try by 2 goals and Ryan Hampshire.
Hampshire scored again five minutes after the restart after which Reece Lyne inserted a third to affirm a victory that sent the Broncos, who scored consolation tries after one year from the top flight from Brock Lamb , back into the Championship and Alex Walker.
„We’ve simply fallen at the final hurdle and Wakefield were rather great – they kicked us into death and made us come off our own line,“ said Ward.
„It was only one game too for both boys and we are completely devastated.
„However, what a learning experience for us all – I think we’ve all got much better as the months have gone on.
„There have been many ups and downs and it’s been a complete roller coaster using massive performances and some not so great.
„We’re proud of how we have gone about our business and how we’ve improved because the vast majority of that side come up in the Championship.
„They have proved they can play Super League week in and week out, but ultimately we neglected in that which we put out to perform.
„There are loads of advantages, but at the end of the day we have been relegated and it is absolutely heartbreaking for the lads.“
A raft of London players are now expected to leave, including skipper Jay Pitts that will join Wakefield, however he expects the Broncos can easily regain their seat at the very top table.
„It proves how competitive it has been this year but at the conclusion of the day the worst team must go down and that is us, regardless of the number of wins we’ve acquired,“ said Pitts.
„It is just devastating but I am so pleased with the attempts. This year, what we’ve achieved is very remarkable.
„Hopefully it’s a stepping stone to London soccer team to perform hard to return here.“
