Seeds warns against complacency


London coach Joe Mbu starts a six-month touchline ban, three of which are suspended, after his role in a mass brawl that broke out during Skolars’ recent game against Doncaster.

Assistant coach Oliver Bloom was also handed the same punishment ahead of London’s fourth Co-operative Championship One fixture of the season.

Whitehaven coach David Seeds is likely to include Max Wiper, a dual-registration signing from Salford, when his side travel to London for Sunday’s Co-operative Championship One clash.

Seeds said: “Max is a centre and he’ll probably play this week. It’s an area where we’ve been vulnerable of late, and we’ve got five games coming up in April so his arrival will just add a little bit of competition into the mix.”

Carl Rudd remains sidelined, while David Ford is suspended after picking up a one-match ban at Tuesday’s RFL disciplinary hearing.

On London, Seeds added: “The message to the lads this week is to make sure we don’t have any complacency.

“We’ve scored a total of 46 points in our last two games and won them both, while London have scored 42 points in their last two games and lost them both. That shows they’re not too far off.”
