London Broncos will play a Super League fixture at Brisbane Road next year.

The Broncos will take on the Bradford Bulls at the home of Leyton Orient on May 6, with the game being the first of two they will play away from the Twickenham Stoop.

It is part of their expansion initiative for 2012, while the temporary move from their usual home will allow for ground maintenance to take place.

Chief executive Gus Mackay said: "We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to play a Super League fixture at Brisbane Road.

"This fixture meets our objectives of taking the game to new audiences and forms part of our strategic plan of developing the game in East London.

"We are looking forward to working with Leyton Orient to deliver a game that engages the local community and showcases our sport to a new market."
