London chairman David Hughes says half-back Morgan Smith epitomises the spirit the club requires if it’s to solidify its Super League status.

Smith has agreed terms on a new two-year deal with the Broncos, after having signed from Warrington ahead of this season.

Hughes said: “I am delighted that Morgan has decided to stay with us in London.

“We are very much of the opinion that we need players who really want to play and live in London and he epitomises that feeling.

“He has improved with every game this year and I for one am excited to see him in the seasons to come.”

Smith added: “I took to the capital pretty quickly to be honest and the lads and staff here are great for anybody coming here as you are made to feel at home very quickly.

“A lot of us are in the same boat, being away from home, and there is a real togetherness which helps immensely.

“I would like to thank the fans here in London too as they welcomed me in very early on. They are a really passionate group down here and make themselves heard whether home or away.”
