THE TEAM NEWS

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Adebiyi, Battye, Butler, Cunningham, Davis, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Hellewell, Ioane, Kear, Krasniqi, Pitts, Richards, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable: Eloi Pelissier, Morgan Smith, Ryan Morgan

  • London once again left themselves with too much to do in the second half but put in another spirited effort in their loss to Hull FC and they will need to build on that as they prepare to face St. Helens.

  • The Broncos have been dealt a huge blow with the news that halfback Morgan Smith could be out for the season with a dislocated shoulder and on-loan centre Ryan Morgan is also out this week.

  • Morgan is replaced in Danny Ward’s 19-man squad by Olsi Krasniqi with the forward returning following a slight injury and he should come straight back into the matchday 17 as London look to end their three-game losing run.

ST HELENS

Head Coach: Justin Holbrook

Squad: Amor, Ashworth, Batchelor, Bentley, Costello, Dodd, Eaves, Grace, Hazzard, Knowles, Lees, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Paulo, Peyroux, Richardson, Simm, Smith, Swift, Welsby

Unavailable: Zeb Taia, Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Kevin Naiqama, Mark Percival, Theo Fages, Alex Walmsley, James Roby, Luke Thompson, Lachlan Coote

  • St. Helens comfortably defeated Wigan in their local derby as they again highlighted the gap between themselves and the rest of the league and with the League Leaders’ Shield all-but secure, Justin Holbrook has turned his attention to next week’s Challenge Cup.

  • The Saints boss has ripped his squad apart this week with him making nine changes from last week’s 19-man squad as he looks to have his players in prime condition for the clash with Halifax.

  • Youngsters Josh Eaves, Callum Hazzard, Josh Sim and Lewis Dodd are all named in the squad for the first time whilst fringe players such as Danny Richardson, Adam Swift and Jack Welsby will get a chance to shine.

THE PREDICTION

The last time these two teams met, London produced the shock of the season as they edged a golden point thriller against the league leaders and may be able to repeat that feat against a hugely under-strength Saints team. Justin Holbrook has opted to rest nine of his first choice 17 as he looks to keep his squad fresh ahead of the next week’s Challenge Cup semi-final and although they are still favourites, London can cause a shock against the young side to give themselves a huge lift in their battle to avoid relegation.
