Rea names nineteen Warriors battle

London Broncos home game this Sunday against Wigan Warriors could see the return of Russell Bawden for the first time since re-joining London from French side UTC.

Bawden suffered a knee injury in the French Final three weeks back but is very close to making his 'third' London debut. Rea will also have the services of Richard Moore for Sunday's game. The Bradford prop, on loan with London, was not permitted to play against his home club last week at Odsal, but admits he wants more from Griffin Park:

"We were really boosted (by the crowd) at our last game and I was pretty happy with my own game."

There are a few areas I am still working on and I'm enjoying my time here. Sunday will be a big test for all of us."

Tony Rea said: "A few things went against us last week at Bradford and we'll need to tidy up those areas. We've worked hard this week in training, and I know the team are itching to get back on their own turf."

The home advantages can often play a very important role in the outcome of games and I look forward to seeing our crowd deliver like they did against the Rhinos."

In other news the Broncos have released Andrew Brocklehurst. The former Halifax back-rower will join Salford for the remainder of the season.

Rea commented: "To be with his family meant he had to return home and we're happy to release him so that he can still pursue a career in the game."

Team as follows:

Sykes Kirkpatrick Roy Jackson Wells Purdham Moran, Retchless Budworth Trindall Hart Botham O'Halloran Highton, Stephenson Stringer Greenwood Moore Bawden
