No change in the squad for Thursday from the Barrow match. Widnes have a few new faces.
I hope the referee will be up to the job.

The London Broncos 19 man squad to face Widnes Vikings on Thursday 9th August at 7.45pm

15 – Eddie Battye
23 – Robert Butler
17 – Michael Channing
09 – James Cunningham
13 – Matt Davis
05 – Kieran Dixon
18 – Ben Evans
11 – Daniel Harrison
03 – Ben Hellewell
26 – Daniel Hindmarsh
10 – Mark Ioane
01 – Elliot Kear
30 – Eloi Pelissier
06 – Api Pewhairangi
12 – Jay Pitts
07 – Jarrod Sammut
08 – Tom Spencer
14 – Alex Walker
02 – Rhys Williams


Full squad. Can’t quite work out why Channing keeps appearing in the squad, when it seems clear he will never make the team?

Must win game for Widnes, they lost this, they won't even make the MPG.. For us probably also must win, but we do have enough games to make up for the loss. Key for us is getting close and competing. If we get hammered will not be a fun 7 weeks to come

I'm really torn with this one. It will be a good acid test to see just where we are.

Widnes have been smart in the past by preparing for the middles 8's some distance out when they knew they were in them. Its seems they've done something similar this year. Brought in new faces, returning injured players for game 1 etc. 2 week preparation camp.

We could sneak it, we could get hammered i'm just not sure.
Mac out!

Key to the game is going to be ptb ruck speed. This is where the SL outfits are much better than championship teams, if they win the the ruck the ptb is quick, it’s an area where we have generally not been too good in defence or attack.
Respect possession, play to the referee, it’s not about the ref being up to the job it’s about finding what he will let go and what he won’t, another thing broncos have never been good at.
Anyone going up?

I agree , Widnes play it smart because they are a poop SL team and edge their bets on pulling it out in the Middle 8’s to keep,their funding and position. Good luck to you guys against them , I hope you turn them over.

I don't know how it would work but there should be some way of carrying forward what has gone on in the season. Widnes clearly gave up the search for league points weeks ago and have been resting players for the 8's. How actions like this fits into Elstones view of the future of SL is beyond me.

Good luck. As a fax fan am wanting all the championship clubs to do well against the sl teams. The more we match/turn them over the better for the championship. Be good to send 2 down this year :D
