Rugby League

Ward eager to kick on

11th August 2019, 15:41 by Tom Hill

London Broncos boss Danny Ward believes his side can still avoid relegation from Super League despite losing to Castleford Tigers.

The Broncos were in front at half time after Brock Lamb's converted try was enough to give them a 6-4 advantage after Tuoyo Egodo's reply for the Tigers.

Daryl Powell's side eventually found their groove in the second half though and tries from Oliver Holmes, Jacques O'Neill and a further effort from Egodo handed them a 20-6 success.

While the Tigers moved up to fifth, London remain two points adrift at the bottom of the table but Ward is refusing to panic.

He told BBC Sport: "I'm obviously disappointed with the result. We put ourselves in a good position at half-time and it just got away from us in a 10-to-15-minute period in that second half.

"They ramped it up a little bit and came down our edges with some tempo and scored a couple of tries.

"With our errors and the penalties we gave away we just gave ourselves too much to do against a very good side.

"But we showed enough fight, resilience and toughness to leave the place quite happy, knowing that we're in a decent spot and we'll be alright."
