Peden to Return to Australia

Billy Peden has shocked the London Broncos club by retiring in order to take up a new coaching role with his former club Newcastle Knights. The forward had only recently announced his intention to play on for one last year.

But a three-year contract with the Knights was "too good to turn down" according to Broncos chief executive Nic Cartwright.

"Whilst we don't like to see him go, he goes with our very best wishes," Cartwright added.
