Smith revels in Broncos deal

15th July 2019, 14:16 by Alex Jack

London Broncos half-back Morgan Smith has revealed the chance to continue working under Danny Ward was key in him penning a new deal.

The former Warrington Wolves half-back has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with the capital outfit, who are currently battling for their Super League survival this season.

Smith was delighted to get a new deal over the line and the 21-year-old playmaker is looking forward to continuing his developement under Ward.

"I have really enjoyed my time here at London Broncos and when I was given the chance to sign again I jumped at the chance," he told the club webiste. "I came here for the opportunity to play regularly and that has been the case. I have to thank Danny Ward and Jamie Langley for giving me my chance here and I hope I have repaid their faith in me.

"I took to the capital pretty quickly to be honest and the lads and staff here are great for anybody coming here as you are made to feel at home very quickly. A lot of us are in the same boat, being away from home, and there is a real togetherness which helps immensely.

"I would like to thank the fans here in London too as they welcomed me in very early on. They are a really passionate group down here and make themselves heard whether home or away."
