London Broncos have switched Thursday's Super League clash with Catalan Dragons to Esher due to the adverse weather conditions.

The Broncos' regular home ground, The Twickenham Stoop, was deemed unplayable after snow, rain, sleet and freezing temperatures over the last few days.

"We have spent the last 24 hours searching for venues but, with a busy schedule of football matches this weekend, we have been severely limited in our choice of alternative venue," said London chief executive Gus Mackay.

"We wanted to avoid backing up fixtures and we were keen for the team to maintain their momentum following the performances over Castleford Tigers and Hull FC.

"The ground at Esher has been approved by the RFL for this one-off game. We are grateful for the support from the RFL and for Esher Rugby Union Club for hosting us at short notice."
