It will be the sixth consecutive season that London Broncos have taken a match on the road, thereby assisting the sport itself to spread it's wings. The game against Widnes Vikings, which will kick off at 3pm at the 'world of hurt' in Aberavon, is a London Broncos 'home' game, and not a game being taken on the road by the administrative body at the Rugby Football League or Super League. A lot of groundwork has been undertaken by London Broncos and the Aberavon club itself, where the Broncos last week conducted a coaching 'masterclass' headed up by Tony Rea.
Club Captain Mat Toshack, who was a member of the Broncos Team that took a game on the road to Newport in 2000, hopes Welsh fans appreciate the work done by his club: "When we played Warrington at Newport it was great to see the 'neutral fans' who had no real allegiance to either side get behind us.
It made the effort all the more worthwhile because I know that it's not an easy thing for our club to take a game on the road." Last timer the majority of Welsh fans got right behind our lads. I know Widnes coach Neil Kelly is also the coach of Wales, but that's not really too significant at club level."
I just hope the locals appreciate the work our club has done in helping to make this game a success." If you are coming to the game, wear your National colour of red because we'll certainly be wearing our own red strip, and cheer for the Broncos." Above all else, enjoy your day of Rugby Super League."
