Super League preview: London v Warrington

Warrington travel to the capital on the back of their first win of the season, and they will be heavy favourites at the Hive.

The hosts have lost off-season signings Nesiasi Mataitonga and James Duckworth to injury, but former Melbourne three-quarter Denny Solomona is named in their squad after arriving in the UK.

Stefan Ratchford, the Wolves’ full-back for their opening three games, has scored tries in his side’s last four meetings with the Broncos, but he may move into the halves to accommodate Scotland international Matty Russell, who is set to make his debut.

Head coach Tony Smith’s other change sees Glenn Riley return after injury.
