Leeds Rhinos vs London Broncos Preview

Leeds Rhinos welcome back Jamie Jones Buchanan for this must win game against the unheralded London Broncos at Emerald Headingly Stadium tonight (Kick off 19.45). At the other end of the age scale England Academy prop forward Thomas Holroyd is included in the nineteen with Brad Singleton and Cameron Smith missing out.

This is a return to his former stomping ground for highly rated Broncos coach Danny Ward, who includes James Cunningham, Nathan Mason, Jay Pitts and three-quarter Ryan Morgan and Kieran Dixon 

Rhinos Coach David Furner is the man very much under pressure with rumours suggesting that Marquee signing Trent Merrin wants a return back to the NRL in 2020. That must be unsettling for a home team who none the less have outstanding young players Jack Walker, Harry Newman, Thomas Holroyd and Mikolaj Oledzki looking to make an impact.

For London this season Luke Yates has been impressive in his debut season and Eddie Battye is an old fashioned tough, no nonsense forward who will relish the opportunity to take on a Leeds team in trouble.

This should be a game where Leeds Romp to victory, with Konrad Hurrell having the perfect opportunity to respond to early season critics of Rhinos performances. I'm predicting a Home victory by 20-24 points

Leeds (from): Walker, T. Briscoe, Hurrell, Handley, Lolohea, Myler, Cuthbertson, Parcell, Merrin, Ablett, Dwyer, Sutcliffe, Ferres, Peteru, Oledzki, Jones-Buchanan, Donaldson, Newman, Holroyd

London (from): Abdull, Battye, Butler, Cunningham, Davis, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Gee, Kear, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pelissier, Pitts, Richards, Walker, Williams, Yates
