Broadbent’s four-year run comes to an end

Gary Broadbent will miss his first game since 2006 when the Raiders face Toulouse on Saturday.

The ever-reliable Barrow full-back needed stitches in an arm injury sustained during last week’s defeat against Halifax.

Coach Steve McCormack said: “Hopefully Gary will just miss this week. He goes back to see the doctor on Monday to check on his progress.”

McCormack added: “Against Halifax we responded really well in the second half, but you can’t afford to be 24-0 down at half-time.

“We need to get back to winning ways.

“On their day, Toulouse are a very good side. They’ve got people like full-back Rory Bromley, who’s very exciting, and Brendon Worth who takes them forward well.

“They’re probably a bit like ourselves; a little bit inconsistent but capable of playing some really good stuff when things fall into place.”

Olympique will check on Toan Tisseyres, Nicolas Faure and Martin Mitchell, but coach Gilles Dumas is definitely without Andrei Olar, Constant Villegas and Simon Worrall.
