London Broncos utility back Ben Hellewell says the Broncos face desperation football this Sunday as they aim to keep their top four ambitions alive.
“It’s desperation football and we need to get one over on Dewsbury after the loss in pre-season and again at our place earlier this year. Our focus is clear, we need a win,” he said.
“It’s not an easy game, with Dewsbury beating Featherstone last weekend. We’re coming off a loss to Halifax and wee didn’t perform as well as we can against Whitehaven. That said our confidence is high and we’ve trained well this week and we know what Dewsbury will throw at us, they’ve got a big forward back and talisman in Anthony Thackray who takes them around the field.”
Hellewell played wing and full-back earlier in the season but has settled into the centre position in recent weeks, scoring five tries in eight appearances after the season ending injury to Ben Farrar.
“Elliot Kear has done a great job for us at full-back. I can play a few positions, I think I’m playing well and hopefully I’ve cemented my spot in the centre. I hope to continue playing well and improve even more as we progress towards the Super 8s.”
London Broncos face two consecutive away trips (Dewsbury 12th July, 3pm and Workington 19th July, 3pm) before their final game before the Super 8s at home to Sheffield Eagles on Sunday 26th July, kick-off 3pm.
