Tony Rea has again named the same team for this Sunday's game at Castleford Tigers.
London's first 'home win' for the season against Widnes last Sunday, albeit on the road in Wales, saw the Broncos jump three places on the Tetley's Super League table. Rea's men climbed above Widnes, Warrington and champions, St Helens to climb into the top six. London will look to make it four wins on the bounce on Sunday, and with some speculation about the chances of Broncos Chris Thorman making the Yorkshire Origin team, this will be an ideal chance to impress before Danny Orr and Graham Steadman.
Castleford are one of four visitors to Griffin Park to have had a win this season. In round five the Tigers won 24-12 and last season had an 18-18 draw with the Broncos in the one game at Castleford.
Fans can listen to live match commentary through the Broncos website www.londonbroncos.co.uk from 3.30pm on Sunday.

London will play five home games at Griffin Park in the space of one month. The next home game is against Hull FC on Saturday 5th July and then the Broncos will face the 2002 Cup Champions (Wigan), the 2002 NFP Champions (Huddersfield), the 2003 Cup Champions (Bradford), and the current Tetley's Super League Champions (St Helens)! This hectic schedule has arisen due to a number of factors beyond the club's control. The Bradford game was postponed due to the Challenge Cup, the reseeded pitch at Griffin Park was not ready in time for the Giants, and due to the team's recent run of form, the round 19 game against Wigan will now be shown live on Sky Sports on Friday July 18th.
The revised schedule is:
* Hull FC: 6pm Saturday 5th July * Wigan: 8pm Friday 18th July * Giants: 8pm Tuesday 22nd July * Bulls: 8pm Wednesday 30th July * St Helens: 3pm Sunday 3rd August
London Broncos team to play Castleford:
Dennis Moran, Paul Sykes, Nigel Roy, Tony Martin, Steve Hall, Rob Purdham, Chris Thorman, Russell Bawden, Neil Budworth, Steele Retchless, Bill Peden, Mat Toshack, Jim Dymock.
