Soward to remain with Broncos


28th July 2013

Playmaker Jamie Soward has promised to stay on and help London Broncos restore some pride in the remaining weeks of the Super League season.

The struggling Broncos signed the Australian on a short-term contract in June with a hope he could propel them into the Challenge Cup final.

Those dreams were ruthlessly shattered by Wigan as the Londoners, who have endured a disappointing league campaign, were beaten 70-0 in their semi-final at Leigh Sports Village.

That led to suggestions Soward, who is joining Penrith Panthers next season after being released by St George-Illawarra Dragons earlier this year, may not see out the season in the capital.

The 28-year-old insists that will not be the case, saying: "No, I'm not that kind of person.

"It's about respect now, trying to get some respect and pride back in the jumper. For all the people here, the owner David (Hughes), trying to show them some pride for the next couple of weeks.

"It's not even about getting off the bottom of the table, just playing for pride."
