London Broncos head coach Andrew Henderson has named his 19-man squad to face Dewsbury Rams in the Semi-Final of the Championship Shield at The Tetley’s Stadium on Sunday (kick-off 3pm).
Henderson said: “Preparations have gone well this week and the players are excited and chomping at the bit to get to Dewsbury and play in a Semi-Final. For a lot of players at this club they’ve not had a lot of big game experience and it will be a great occasion for them.
“I’m sure there will be a good following from the Dewsbury faithful along with the London faithful travelling up and it’ll make for a good atmosphere.
“We’ve played Dewsbury four times this year, three in competition and once in a friendly and they’ve got the better of us in terms of results. I feel last time we played them we gave a decent account of ourselves and just weren’t quite good enough on the day. I’m hoping that this week we’ll be better and we’ll get the result against the Rams.
“We’re looking forward to it and we’re excited and I’m sure the boys will relish the opportunity to play in a Semi-Final.”
Henderson is boosted by the possible return of Jamie Thackray, who has not played since the Workington Town fixture at the end of July.
