As the weather throws a cold blanket over the capital, London Broncos coach Tony Rea expects his stars to shine at Griffin Park on Sunday.
The Broncos are coming off an away loss to Salford and return to their home base to face the joint table-topping Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
With Joe Mbu also included in Rea?s preliminary 20-man squad, the Broncos coach will have some twelve forwards at his disposal.
With no serious injuries sustained at The Willows Mbu, Lolohea and Stephenson have been added to the same seventeen from last weekend.
Rea commented: ?It?s always good to bring a few healthy bodies back but what?s really pleased me is the way we have prepared this week.?
I expect our players to show their real talent on Sunday and to show that we have learned from the lessons of the past couple of weeks.?
The little things must become big again.?
The Wildcats will come to the capital unbeaten in Super League X, and unbeaten by the Broncos in four attempts last season.
20-man squad as follows:
Anthony Armour, Nick Bradley-Qalilawa, Neil Budworth, Luke Dorn, Lee Greenwood, Lee Hopkins, Solomon Haumono, Thomas Leuluai, Filimone Lolohea, Zebastian Luisi, Joe Mbu, Mark McLinden, Rob Purdham, Tyrone Smith, Francis Stephenson, Paul Sykes, Mitch Stringer, Steve Trindall, Mark Tookey, Jon Wells.
