London Broncos vs Castleford Tigers Preview

If anything is going to go wrong in a game then this is the place for it to happen for any visiting team. Ealing’s plastic pitch and the long journey down may all play to the psychological advantage of the home team. Both teams are well coached but it’s the visitors who have the stand out names. 

For the Tigers Paul McShane is rated by many as the best hooker in super league and Jake Trueman is already having a whirl of a time and demonstrating he will be close to international honours at the end of year Great Britain Lions tour.

Alex Foster, Mitch Clark and Ben Foster all drop out due to injury with Chris Clarkson, Cory Aston, Tuoyo Egodo and Jacques O’Neill stepping into the nineteen.

For the fourth game in a row Broncos coach Danny award has named an unchanged squad and Ward will believe his team have challenged really well despite two defeats.

The home team of course have their own star men in James Cunningham and Jordan Abdull and winger Kieran Dixon is just the type of winger opposing coach Darryl Powell will rate.

With Ryan Morgan a strong and reliable defensive centre will the Castleford three quarter line of Michael Shenton , Greg Minikin and Greg Eden have enough firepower to take this game.

For me Mike McKeekan remains a big loss for the visitors and with Ben Roberts also not available a shock home win could be on the cards here.

It’s going to be close and I will take a marginal London victory by 1-5 points.

London: Abdull, Adebiyi, Battye, Cunningham, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Ioane, Kear, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pelissier, Pitts, Richards, Walker, Williams, Yates. 

Castleford Tigers: from Aston, Clare, Clarkson, Cook, Eden, Egodo, Massey, Mata’utia, McShane, Millington, Milner, Minikin, Moors, O’Neill, Rankin, Sene-Lefao, Shenton, Trueman, Watts.
