Ward wants extended London stay

2nd September 2019, 16:10 by Dan McCarthy

London Broncos head coach Danny Ward says he would like to stay with the club next season, regardless of what division they are in.

Following the weekend's home defeat to Leeds Rhinos, the Broncos are now on the brink of the drop back down to the Championship after just one season in Super League.

Despite their season containing some great results, including a late win over runaway table-toppers St Helens, they are two points off safety with two games remaining, both of which they must win to give themselves a chance of avoiding the drop.

However, even if they do, as expected, go down, Ward says he is planning on staying with the club.

"I'm speaking to London now, I'm very happy here and I want to extend," he told BBC Radio London.

"I'm that slack, I sort the lads out first before I get round to myself. I've not signed my contract from last year yet, or the year before, so that's the way I've always operated."

"London is my home and I've been here 12 years now," Ward added.

"I've been involved in every age group, I see it as a long term project and I want to be part of London Broncos in Super League."
