We're back up and running for a whole new season in London and there is plenty to get excited about.
The 23 (soon to be 25) man squad has started the pre season training camp in sunny Isleworth, and the team is to have it's first 'friendly' hit-out in the south of France against UTC at St Esteve Stadium at 7.30pm on Wednesday January 19.
This is the first of four planned ?friendlies? before the season kicks off in early-mid February. The official fixtures are expected to be announced by the RFL some time this week.
Next up will be Whitehaven at the Recreation Ground (kick off 7.30pm) on Wednesday 26 January, followed by a game against Wigan Warriors on Sunday 30th January (k/o 3pm - venue TBC), and the Broncos 'friendly tour' will finish back in London against the Skolars on Saturday 5th February (k/o 2.30pm) at New River Stadium.
Tony Rea commented on the schedule: "It's all locked in and there is a lot of variety in terms of where and who we are playing.
I think our choice of opponents is also healthy for the game itself, not just London. We'll actually play a team from four different divisions which I think is great."
Note: Wigan (Super League), Whitehaven (NL1), London Skolars (NL2), and UTC (Elite Championship, FRANCE)
