Salford City Reds v London Broncos - Super League Round 5 preview
Last Updated: 01/03/13 7:28pm
Australian recruits Vic Mauro and Liam Foran go straight into Salford City Reds' squad to face London Broncos in their Super League basement battle on Friday.
The pair are available for Salford just 48 hours after arriving from Sydney.
Half-back Foran will help to offset the loss of Rhys Williams, who has been recalled by Warrington Wolves, while Mauro will plug the gap caused by the suspension of prop Lee Jewitt.
For London, utility back Luke Dorn and prop forward Olsi Krasniqi are hoping to force their way into the team that lost at Wigan last time.
Broncos centre or second rower Tony Clubb is back in the reckoning after recovering from injury although is not in the 19-man squad.
The hosts go into the game on a high, having posted their first Super League win of the campaign last time, a superb 38-34 comeback victory over Hull KR.
Opponents London are still searching for their first points of the season to prop up the table.
Salford squad: Murphy, Broughton, Gibson, Gleeson, D Williams, Sneyd, Griffin, Godwin, McPherson, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Howarth, McGoldrick, Boyle, James, Gledhill, Foran, Mauro.
London squad: Bailey, Bryant, Channing, Cook, Colbon, Dixon, Dorn, Fisher, Gower, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lee, Lovell, Melling, Randall, Rodney, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt.
