Last week saw the London Skolars run out for the first professional outing against hometown neighbours the London Broncos in a fiercely fought match right down to the wire, a drop goal separated the two sides.
This Sunday sees the Skolars take on National League 1 side Halifax in the first game of the Northern Rails Cup. Kick-off is 3pm at New River Stadium.
Crowd favourites Rubert Jonker and, newly appointed captain, Stu Singleton return to the starting side having recovered from groin and shoulder injuries that made them miss the Broncos game.
This has forced the coaching pair of Alex Smits and Marcus Tobin to juggle the team accordingly which sees a shift for centre Brett Blaker to the second row to make way for Singleton.
Both Mat Pitman and Nathan Gee move to the bench due to Jonker?s return and the performance of Kiwi Toby Hall.
The team for Sunday?s fixture at New River Stadium is as follows;
Dean Callis Austen Aggrey Stu Singleton ? Tim Gee Ashley Tozer Jermaine Coleman Gareth Honor Rubert Jonker Kurt Pittman Toby Hall Brett Blaker Richard Singleton Troy O?Shea
Wayne Parillon Mat Pitman Nathan Gee Mike Castle Andrew Gourlay Joe Price Ben Joyce (3 to be omitted)
