Broncos ticket sales on a season
high

The Broncos are expecting one of the biggest home crowds of the engage Super League season on Saturday night when Wigan come to town.

That's the good news.

The not so good news is that, due to the heavy demand, the club is experiencing problems with 'online ticket bookings'.

Therefore, until this is sorted, it is recommended that those wishing to book in advance (and save ?3 per adult ticket) should call the ticket line before 4pm tomorrow (Friday) - 0871 222 1132

Marketing Assistant Stacy Roth commented:

"It's not ideal but I guess in a way it's a good problem to have because it's been caused by a rush in sales."

Our pre-sales have easily surpassed that of our two other games this season, and they could well eclipse our best figure last season as well."

For that reason, and given the expected size of the pre-sale bookings, I recommend fans allow themselves a little extra time to get into the ground."

REMARKS PROMPT REA-ACTION IN LONDON

When London Broncos taken on Wigan Warriors at Griffin Park on Saturday night there will be many London sports stars watching on.

In recent weeks Broncos Coach Tony Rea has openly expressed his view on the quality of rugby that fans can expect to see at Griffin Park.

There have been quotes in national and local press outlets, and even blatant advertising, declaring that the rugby at Griffin Park, according to Rea, is 'the best you'll find in London."

And it would seem that Rea?s team, which has performed exceptionally well in two performances at home so far this year, has evoked the desired effect. Not only will there be players from Chelsea FC and Surrey County Cricket Club in attendance, but also players from local rugby union club London Harlequins.

Rea believes that what fans will see on Saturday night will further back up his claim:

What I choose to say is my own opinion. It?s the performance of our team that really counts but it?s great to see so many other sports coming out to take a look. They are all most welcome.?

What I can be sure of is that this will be one hell of an exciting game."

If you've ever thought about coming to look at this spectacle, but as yet have not made the effort, make sure you get to this one. You will not be disappointed."

In team news Rea has announced his 20-man squad with Jon Kirkpatrick and Dave Highton both returning from injury for what will be their first game in the engage Super League.?

Rea will be missing Rob Purdham for six weeks after the England ?A? International broke his hand at Bradford last Sunday.
