London Broncos head coach Andrew Henderson has named his squad for Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship game against Dewsbury Rams at The Hive (kick-off 3:00pm).
Broncos will be hoping to keep their unbeaten home record and extend the home winning run to five games with a win over the Rams. Included in the squad is Elliot Kear who earlier this week signed a contract until the end of the 2016 season.
“I pretty much stuck with the same side throughout that period (Easter) so it was a well-deserved break (last weekend),” said Henderson. “It was good from the players point of view just to freshen up and also gave us an opportunity to have a couple of days away from rugby so we can mentally freshen up as well as physically.
“Dewsbury are a very good side; they’ve got a lot of quality players throughout their team. They taught us a lesson early in pre-season and have been winning in recent weeks so are probably playing with a bit of confidence.
“We’re going to have to be very good to get the result on Sunday. We’ve prepared well this week and we’re unbeaten at home so we’re hoping to keep that record intact. We’re going to have to be honest as a team and ensure we work extremely hard for each other and execute the plan.”
