Atelea Vea: To make his London Broncos debut against Wakefield Wildcats
Australian forward Atelea Vea is set to make his Super League debut for London Broncos against Wakefield at The Hive on Saturday.
The former St George Illawarra back rower arrived in London on Thursday and was immediately named in the Broncos' 19-man squad.
"He's been training back in Australia and is in really good shape," said coach Tony Rea. "He's good to go."
Vea is set to line up alongside his former Dragons team-mate, half-back Josh Drinkwater, who made his debut against Bradford 11 days ago but was forced to pull out of last week's game against Warrington after picking up hamstring injury in the warm-up.
"Josh has had a healthy week," said Rea.
The Broncos have endured a slow start to the new campaign losing all four of their Super League match this season.
