THE big boys of the London Broncos traded the oval ball for the wooden spoon and headed into the kitchen for an appearance on hit cookery show, Ready, Steady Cook.

Two of the Valley-based club's forwards made their television debuts on the popular programme last month.

The heated competition between front-rower Dom Peters and second-rower Steele Retchless will appear on BBC2 later this year. Celebrity chef Ainsley Harriet refereed the cook-off.

Mr Richards said: “The competition was really hot between the lads as to who would be picked to go on the show.

“I'm not quite sure why they choose Dom and me but we has a great time.”
