Injured trio miss out for Broncos

London will be without Chris Bailey, Chris Melling and Michael Witt for Friday’s trip to St Helens through injury.

Bailey has picked up a hip injury, while both Melling and Witt have calf problems.

Back-rower Shane Rodney has also been ruled out for the rest of the season after having surgery on a neck injury.

However, there is a welcome return for youngster Dan Sarginson, who has been out of action with an ankle injury since the end of July.

Broncos head coach Tony Rea commented: “Dan has been very diligent in his rehab and got himself back for the final two games. He now needs to transfer that same energy into the game.

“It’s been a productive week and we’ve worked hard in the break. We’re looking to improve the intensity and performance on Friday.”

Rea is also without Liam Colbon (shoulder) and Matt Cook (ligaments) through injury, for the trip to Langtree Park.

London 19-man squad v St Helens: B Bolger, Bryant, Caro, Channing, Clubb, Dixon, Dorn, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lovell, McMeeken, O’Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Sarginson, Wheeldon.
