Henderson quits Broncos to team up with new Warrington boss Price

Henderson quits Broncos to team up with new Warrington boss Price

Andrew Henderson has left his job as head coach of London Broncos to become assistant to new Warrington Wolves boss Steve Price.

The 38-year-old former Castleford Tigers, Barrow and Sheffield Eagles hooker, who represented Scotland in the last two World Cups, was named Kingstone Press Championship coach of the year after guiding the Broncos to a second-place finish in 2017.

Price, who has succeeded Tony Smith at the Wolves, said: "Andrew has always been enthusiastic and meticulous with his preparation and I saw that first hand when Cronulla played an exhibition game against the London Broncos ahead of the World Club Challenge.

"He comes to us on the back of a great season down at the Broncos and I am excited to be working alongside him as his experience within the game gives him a lot to offer the performance team here at Warrington."

London say they have begun the process of finding a replacement for Henderson, who began his coaching career at Sheffield before joining the Broncos, initially as assistant to Joe Grima, in November 2014.

Henderson said: "It is a fantastic opportunity presented to me by Warrington. The club has built a solid infrastructure and superb facilities in recent years.

"I think as a team they had a disappointing year for their standards but I believe there is some exciting young talent as well some good senior professionals who can lead the team forward."

He added: "My experience at London has given me good grounding for this next step in my career. I've learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Broncos, getting them back to a credible stage for them to be able to now kick on.

"However, I feel the time is right for me to move to the next level in this role. I can only thank London chairman David Hughes for giving me the opportunity and supporting me now in this move."
