Super League preview: London Broncos v Warrington Wolves
Last Updated: 08/06/13 3:25pm
London Broncos look set to be boosted by the return of a quartet of players for Saturday's 'home' fixture against Warrington.
Head coach Tony Rea is able to recall Shane Grady, Alex Hurst and Dan Sarginson to his 19-man squad for the Londoners' latest 'on-the-road' game that takes place at the Priestfield Stadium in Gillingham.
As well as the returning trio, the Broncos could have winger Kieran Dixon back in action after he missed the draw with Castleford last time out with a hand injury.
Scrum-half Mike Bishay retains his place in the squad having made his debut last weekend against Tigers in a match that saw the capital club let slip a 30-16 lead in the final 10 minutes at the Twickenham Stoop.
Craig Gower scored one of the Broncos' tries but it has since been announced that the veteran half-back has left the club to return to Australia and join Newcastle Knights on a short-term deal.
Rea will also be unable to call upon the services of Will Lovell and Chad Randall for the rest of the campaign due to injuries, while Matt Cook is out for at least a month with an ankle problem and Shane Rodney (neck) is also sidelined.
Warrington, meanwhile, are without Australian back rower Trent Waterhouse for their long trip to Kent.
Wolves coach Tony Smith is, however, set to welcome back Brett Hodgson. The full-back - who is due to captain the Exiles against England on June 14, has missed the last three matches after undergoing minor knee surgery.
There are also recalls for Mike Cooper and James Laithwaite, who broke his ankle back in April while on dual-registration duty with Swinton, to the visitors' 19-man party.
The Wolves have won five of their previous six Super League outings and crushed Salford 68-10 last time out - they also hit a half-century of points when they hosted the Broncos earlier in the year.
London Broncos: Bailey, Bishay, Bryant, Channing, Clubb, Dixon, Dorn, Fisher, Grady, Hurst, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, McMeeken, Melling, Mendeika, Robertson, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt.
Warrington: Atkins, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, Laithwaite, McCarthy, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, C. Riley, Westwood, Wood.
