World class Moran signs with London Broncos
It's been a great week for the southern most Tetley's Super League club ahead of this Sunday's crucial home game to Warrington, and news today that key play maker Dennis Moran has signed a new three year deal, is another enormous boost.
Last season the former Parramatta Eel remarkably scored more tries than any other player in Super League from the position of scrum half. This season he is not too far off the pace either with 17 tries, despite missing the first month of the season.
Ironically, his first game this season was at Griffin Park against Warrington. The feisty number seven played seven successive games without scoring before moving to full back and landing an amazing 13 tries in just five games. His current tally has been scored in just 12 games.
Since joining the Broncos from the NRL in 2001, Dennis has scored 51 tries in 78 appearances.
Of this 'blue chip' signing coach Tony Rea can't speak highly enough about what this means for the future of the club: "Dennis is a special player and his competitiveness is a precious asset to our club. His decision to remain here in London is great news. He is world class."
Broncos CEO Nic Cartwright added: "This week has all been about good news for the Broncos. But the week is not yet over. To cap the week off, we would love a win over the Wolves down at Griffin Park."
I am sure the London crowd will cheer Dennis and Jimmy on to a great day for the club - make sure you are there."
The only change to Tony Rea's line-up for Sunday is the return from injury of Tony Martin who missed last week's drawn game at Belle Vue with a groin strain. He will replace Rob Jackson (ankle).
Tony Rea has been very happy with the week's preparation: "It's been a very energetic week in training, and we are all in a very positive and confident frame of mind."
