Naiqama named Broncos captain

London Broncos have named Fiji international Wes Naiqama as their captain for the 2016 season.

The 33 year-old has been handed the captaincy from current teammate Nick Slyney.

Naiqama was part of the Broncos side who finished in a disappointing 7th place in the Kingstone Press Championship last season.

He began his career in his native Australia with St George Illawarra, before heading over to Newcastle Knights and Penrith Panthers.

The Broncos have added a seven new players to their ranks ahead of the 2016 season, including Scott Leatherbarrow from Batley Bulldogs and Eddie Battye from Sheffield Eagles.

Head Coach Andrew Henderson has emphasised that his side must improve ahead of the new season and goal-kicker Naiqama has subsequently been given the captaincy to lead the side in 2016.

Henderson has also promoted Australian back-rower Daniel Harrison to Vice Captain for the upcoming season.
