11 hours ago
Tony Rea will be searching for his team?s third win on the spin when they run out at Knowsley Road on Friday night against St Helens. London backed up a good home win over Wigan Warriors a fortnight ago (22-20) with another solid win on Sunday against Widnes (24-38)
This will be the third Tetley?s Super League contest between London and St Helens this year. Although the Broncos are yet to win, both contests have been quite close.
Round two saw Saints win in London (12-26) and then one month back at St Helens London went down (30-10).
This will be Steele Retchless?s 200th appearance for London Broncos since joining the club in 1998. It will also be his 81st consecutive game.
Rea has named the same team which won at Widnes with the inclusion of Francis Stephenson on a five man bench. Stephenson was rested last week due to a head injury in the Wigan game.
Team as follows:
Wells, Kirkpatrick, Roy, O?Halloran, Greenwood, Sykes, Moran, Trindall, Highton, Stringer, Retchless, Purdham, Dymock, Mbu, Bawden, Sampson, Thomas, Stephenson
Kick off is 8pm. Fans not travelling to the game can listen to live web commentary through BBC London 94.9fm. See www.londonbroncos.co.uk for details.
