Slyney commits to Broncos
Australian prop Nick Slyney has given relegation favourites London Broncos a boost by signing a new two-year contract.
The 26-year-old former Brisbane Broncos forward joined the Londoners in January on a deal to the end of the season and has now pledged his commitment to the club, despite their almost certain relegation to the Championship.
The Broncos are bottom of the table without a win from their first 16 matches, the worst start by any club to a Super League campaign.
"I'm very pleased to have a two-year contract," said Slyney, who has played in all but 17 of the club's league and cup matches so far. "It's a bit of security for the future, more than that I want to try and help London get back to where they should be.
"I've loved it actually. I've really enjoyed playing football here even though the results haven't been going our way. I'm really enjoying the club and Joey's doing a great job, the boys are awesome and I couldn't ask for a better bunch of lads."
Slyney is the fifth player to sign a new deal for 2015 but the first senior to do so.
"Since coming over here, he's been an incredible person and just over the last five or six weeks shown his real class and ability on the football field," head coach Joe Grima said. "More than that he's a good person.
"I see him as a real senior figure and a real big part to our success in 2015 and 2016."
