THE TEAM NEWS

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Battye, Butler, Davis, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Kear, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pelissier, Pitts, Richards, Smith, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable: Mark Ioane, James Cunningham

  • London secured a huge win as they scored two late tries to defeat Leeds Rhinos for their first away win of the Super League season and will now look to build on that back on home soil where they have won two games so far.

  • The Broncos have lost halfback James Cunningham to injury and he will miss out against his former club meaning fellow ex-Hull player Jordan Abdull will have a new halfback partner for this game, likely to be Morgan Smith after he came into the 19-man squad.

  • London head coach Danny Ward is trying to keep his full squad on their toes and those not playing this weekend have been sent out on dual registration with Sadiq Adebiyi, Ben Hellewell, Jacob Ogden, James Meadows and Dan Hindmarsh all featuring elsewhere this weekend.

HULL FC

Head Coach: Lee Radford

Squad: Ellis, Faraimo, Griffin, Hadley, Houghton, Kelly, Lane, Litten, Manu, Matongo, Naulago, Paea, Scott, Shaul, Sneyd, Taylor, Thompson, Tuimavave, Washbrook

Unavailable: Matty Dawson-Jones, Josh Bowden, Chris Green, Josh Bowden, Liam Harris, Jake Connor, Joe Westerman, Mark Minichiello

  • Hull FC were poor as Wakefield were too big and strong through the middle as their three-match winning streak came to an abrupt end with the Black and Whites seeking immediate redemption here.

  • FC have opted not to select new signing Andre Savelio in their 19-man squad despite having completed a full week of training with Lee Radford potentially not wanting to risk him on the artificial surface due to the ACL injury he suffered last season.

  • Mickey Paea is back in the squad after overcoming the injury that kept him out last week whilst Danny Washbrook and Cameron Scott receive call-ups but Joe Westerman and Mark Minichiello are both out.

THE PREDICTION

London shocked Leeds last week as they scored two tries in the final five minutes to claim their first away win of the season. They now return to home soil to host a Hull FC side that were comfortably beaten last week. This could be a game that goes end-to-end with either side able to claim the spoils. London will be on a massive high after last week’s win but Hull are likely to show a reaction to last week’s disappointing display and that could be enough to edge it for them.
