Ward admits poor team selections after Hull defeat

After seeing his side go down 35-22 to Hull FC, London boss Danny Ward was critical of his own team selection after an appalling first half cost his side.

Ward made a number of forced and unforced changes, with six players out injured, and watched on as Hull blew the Broncos off the park in the first period, taking a 34-0 lead into half time.

Although pleased with the spirit his players showed to claw back the scoreline in the second half, Ward held his hands up to some selections but was confident the team would stick together and stay in the battle with relegation.

“The first half was poor and they probably took the foot off the gas in the second but we were way off at the start,” he admitted.

“We had too many players missing one on ones and rugby league is a tough game when you don’t have the ball.”

“I’ll hold my hands up, maybe some of my team selection wasn’t good enough tonight and I maybe didn’t prepare them as much as they needed but we’re in it together and we’re still in this.”

“There were a few individuals that came up a little bit short tonight but we’ll hold our hands up and go back to the drawing board and regroup,” he added.
