THE TEAM NEWS

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

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

Unavailable: Eloi Pelissier

  • London will be hoping the week off can work as well as it did for them last time but must put their loss to Leeds behind them as they host league leaders St. Helens in what looks like a daunting prospect for the Broncos.

  • The Broncos were hoping to have a fully-fit squad to choose from but hooker Eloi Pelissier is again missing after failing to prove his fitness following the injury suffered in the win over Wakefield.

  • London head coach Danny Ward has opted to make one change to his 19-man squad with Will Lovell dropping out and Mark Ioane coming back into the side with the prop hoping to earn a place in the matchday 17.

ST. HELENS

Head Coach: Justin Holbrook

Squad: Ashworth, Coote, Costello, Grace, Knowles, Lees, Lomax, Makinson, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Naiqama, Paulo, Percival, Peyroux, Richardson, Roby, Smith, Taia, Thompson, Walmsley

Unavailable: Theo Fages, Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Alex Walmsley, Zeb Taia, Aaron Smith

  • St. Helens eased past Wakefield to progress to the Challenge Cup semi-finals with a trip to bottom of the table London now on the cards as they look to maintain their superb record so far this season.

  • Saints will be able to call upon Theo Fages for this contest after he overcame his concussion symptoms and he is one of five changes to the St. Helens squad as head coach Justin Holbrook looks to keep his side fresh.

  • Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Alex Walmsley, Zeb Taia and Aaron Smith are all left out for the league leaders with Fages joined by Adam Swift, Kyle Amor, James Bentley and Jack Welsby in the 19.

THE PREDICTION

London put up a good fight in their last game against Leeds but came out second best in their relegation four-pointer. They now face the daunting task of hosting St. Helens who looked unstoppable against Wakefield in the Cup last week and should maintain their winning run here. Saints have given several players the week off and those coming in will want to show their worth and despite their side not being at full strength, they will still take some stopping in the capital.
