London Broncos add coaching experience as Ryan Sheridan takes assistant role for 2024 Super League season

London Broncos have announced Ryan Sheridan as their new assistant coach for the 2024 season, writes Richard James.

This is a significant appointment for the Broncos as Sheridan, right, comes with a wealth of Super League experience from his time as Daryl Powell’s number two at Castleford Tigers and Warrington Wolves.

Broncos director of rugby Mike Eccles said: “Ryan is an outstanding acquisition for us. He is vastly experienced at Super League level and will provide a great level of detail and Super League IQ to our programme.”

Jordie Hedges, previously with Keighley Cougars, has also joined the coaching staff.

Eccles said: “Jordie has done an excellent job in the background at Keighley over the past few seasons and has come highly recommended.

“What’s important to me is that we get the chemistry of the staff right to build the best programme possible and best help maximise the potential of the players.

“Between Ryan, Jordie and myself, I believe we have the right balance to deliver just that.”

Broncos have had a busy time over the past few weeks with contract extensions agreed with Ethan Natoli, Jarred Bassett, Oli Leyland, Jordan Williams, Emmanuel Waine, Rob Butler, Dean Parata, Sam Davies and Alex Walker.

The squad will also be bolstered by having three of the Broncos academy products returning to the club.

Sadiq Adebiyi is back after a spell at Keighley, James Meadows returns from Batley and Gideon Boafo from Newcastle.

The biggest signing so far is Australian prop Rhys Kennedy.

Kennedy joins London following a successful season with Hull Kingston Rovers, helping them to fourth place and also a cup final appearance at Wembley.

He has previously played in Australia’s NRL for South Sydney and the Brisbane Broncos. Kennedy will provide useful experience to a youthful pack and will have a key role to play.

The Broncos will start their season on February 16 with a trip to World Club champions St Helens.

The first game at Plough Lane will be against French side Catalan Dragons, on February 23 at 8pm.  Reigning champions Wigan, will be the next to visit on March 9 (3pm) in what should be an exciting occasion.

Tickets are already on sale for home fixtures and priced at £20 for adults, £15 concessions and £5 for U18s.
