THE TEAM NEWS

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Adebiyi, Battye, Cunningham, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Ioane, Kear, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pelissier, Pitts, Richards, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable:

  • London return to the Super League for the first time since 2014 after they defeated Toronto in the Million Pound Game to win promotion last season.

  • The Broncos have had a low-key off-season in terms of recruitment and will mainly rely on the same squad from last season to keep them in what is set to be a relegation battle.

  • Jordan Abdull will make his London debut and will have plenty of pressure on his shoulders as he is tasked with leading the Broncos around the pitch having arrived from Hull FC.

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arona, Arundel, Ashurst, Batchelor, Brough, Crowther, England, Fifita, Hampshire, Horo, Johnstone, Jones-Bishop, King, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Randell, Tupou, Wood

Unavailable: Danny Kirmond, Craig Huby, Pauli Pauli

  • Wakefield have quietly become an impressive Super League outfit after a couple of solid seasons and will be looking to improve once again.
  • Trinity brought Danny Brough back to the club in the off-season and his partnership with Jacob Miller could be key this year.

  • Brough slots straight into the 19-man squad alongside fellow new recruits George King and Craig Kopczak but Wakefield are without man-mountain Pauli Pauli for this opening encounter.

THE PREDICTION

London head coach Danny Ward will place the trust in many of the players that got his side promoted to keep the Broncos in Super League this season but face a tough opening test against Wakefield. Trinity have produced some superb displays in recent years and their big pack can overpower the Broncos. It could be a rude awakening for the London side and a harsh reality of the long season that lies in wait.
