London Broncos make interesting coaching decision

After a sluggish start to 2022 which saw many earmark the Broncos for relegation, London have turned things around in the second half of the season finishing the campaign strongly and climbing the table.

Not only did they scramble their way out of the relegation zone with Dewsbury slipping out of the league at their expense, but the Broncos climbed as high as 10th.

A lot of this was down to interim head coach Mike Eccles who was previously the Broncos Head of Performance.

But after turning things around so well in the coaching hotseat surely he has to maintain that role going into 2023?

Well not quite. Eccles will still be the man in charge but will be taking on a new role of Director of Rugby and Performance which he assumes with immediate effect. He will lead the coaching and performance elements after impressing in the interim head coach role at the end of the season.

He will be supported by two new assistant coaches who are yet to be appointed but will assume their roles ahead of pre-season. He will also have a new strength and conditioning coach and a performance analyst for 2023 as the Broncos look to reach the highs they achieved in 2018 when they got promoted to Super League.

A club with plenty of potential, now is the time to get on the right track with IMG set to make plenty of changes to rugby league in this country.
