Quartet feature in 74-0 win over Cumbria

Four Brentwood youngsters helped London Broncos under-16s to a 74-0 romp over Cumbria in their first match of the season.

Owen Dew and Luca Valentini scored their first tries for Broncoes, while Rian Horsman led the side well in his first outing as captain and Tyler Tomlinson produced a powerful display in the forwards.

The quartet’s success came after Brentwood players had returned to pre-season training, with good numbers present for the under-14s and under-16s.

The competitive action gets underway on March 4 with a nine-a-side tournament, followed by the first league fixture two weeks later.

Plans are underway for the new under-11 team, for boys in school years five and six which will be launced at Old Brentwoods on March 11 (10am), after several schools in and around the Brentwood area took part in coaching sessions run by the London Rugby League Foundation.

Brentwood club chairman Carl Horsman said: “It was great to see the boys back at training on Saturday and in such good numbers, which is always a good sign.

“The club would also like to congratulate all four boys who played for London Broncos in their first game of the season.

“It was a convincing win but the matches will now get tougher with their next fixture against Salford at the AJ Bell stadium and further fixtures against Wakefield, Huddersfield, City of Hull and the Leeds Rhinos.”
