Ward happy to land Smith

4th January 2019, 13:02 by Nick Harris

London Broncos are delighted to have landed half-back Morgan Smith from Warrington Wolves, according to head coach Danny Ward.

The newly-promoted Broncos have strengthened their squad ahead of their return to the Betfred Super League with the arrival of the half-back who can also play as hooker.

Ward is pleased to have landed another player with Super League experience ahead of their new campaign.

He told Total Rugby: "Morgan is an exciting, young, British half-back who already brings with him Super League experience.

"He has come through the system at a top club and we are looking forward to working with him and continuing his development.”

The 20-year-old had a dual registration with Warrington Wolves and Rochdale Hornets last season, spending most of his time in the Championship after making his debut for Warrington back in 2016, making 25 appearances.

Smith said: "I am very excited to be given such a great opportunity.

"I know that I am a young player, but I will be looking to force my way into the team.

"I had a taste of Super League at Warrington and I can’t wait to get started now with the boys here in London."
