Broncos dynamic winger Kieran Dixon has expressed his delight at getting back on the pitch and spoken of his excitement of the Broncos training camp in France.
Dixon, 20, scored a try in the Broncos 74-6 pre-season win over Championship 1 side London Skolars On Friday and said:
"It was good to get back out on the pitch and play in the first game of the year.
"The game got us out against full contact opposition who are trying to score points against us which was great."
The Broncos will jet off to France this Friday and will play two pre-season friendly games against Toulouse on Saturday January 19 and Catalan Dragons on Wednesday January 23.
"I cannot wait to get over to France, hopefully it'll be warm over there and we can get a bit of sun.
"I think it'll be a big test as we are travelling out and playing the day after we arrive. After that we'll travel down to Catalan and play them a few days after that. Catalan are always a tough side to play but I don't know what to expect from Toulouse yet.
"I've only been to Catalan twice before, once in pre-season last year and once during the Super League season. I enjoyed both times out there and it was really hot."
The Broncos first game of the Super League season is a home game against Widnes Vikings on February 3rd at the Twickenham Stoop, kick-off 3:00pm.
"I can't wait to get started now," said Dixon. "I just want it to hurry up and come around.
"It seems like a long pre-season but it's been longer for some of the other boys as I had time off after England Knights, it was tough for me coming back knowing everyone else was fit."
Match tickets for the Widnes game can be purchased online or by phoning the ticket office on 020 8410 6000. Hospitality options can also be booked by calling 020 8394 6161 or emailing email@example.com
