London Broncos head coach Andrew Henderson has named his squad for Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship game against Hunslet Hawks at South Leeds stadium (kick-off 3:00pm).
The Broncos have brought in Chris Annakin and Jarrod Sammut from Wakefield Wildcats on dual registration for this week, while Tom Gilmore returns on dual registration from Widnes Vikings. Elliot Kear could be in line to make his debut having joined the club last week.
“Annakin will bring toughness, a strong work ethic and a bit of bump and grunt in the middle which I feel we’ve been lacking as a side,” said Henderson. “Jarrod Sammut is also with us and gives us an experienced half-back to partner one of our young halves, he brings a different dynamic to our attack.
“They’ve (Hunslet) got a good balanced team and I’m not expecting anything less than a tough encounter on Sunday. On the back of their win away at Workington they will be going into the game full of confidence and we’re going to have to be wary of the threats they present.
“It’s a tough place to go, it’s a tight field so we’re going to have to make sure that on the day we’re honest as a group and execute the plan to a high level if we’re going to get the two points.”
