- London Broncos have won one of their 11 Super League games this season
- Hull KR won 50-10 in their last meeting with London Broncos
- Recommended bet:
Hull KR -26.5 points

London Broncos landed their first win of the Super League season last time out against Hull FC but face a tough test against top-four contenders Hull KR at Plough Lane on Sunday.

After suffering defeats in their first 10 games of the campaign, the Broncos finally got off the mark with an impressive 34-18 home victory over fellow strugglers Hull FC.

It is a win that will certainly have lifted morale in the Broncos' camp but the Airlie Birds' rivals Hull KR will be a completely different challenge.

The Robins will be reeling from their 38-6 thrashing at the hands of Wigan Warriors in the Challenge Cup and the Broncos could find themselves on the end of a Rovers’ backlash.

Team news

Starting with the hosts, James Meadows was one of the star men for London in their victory over the Black & Whites but an ankle injury means he misses out on Sunday’s game.

Both Jack Hughes and Matt Davies have been called into the 21-man squad for this weekend’s clash in Wimbledon.

As for the visitors, head coach Willie Peters has made four changes from the squad that were beaten by the Warriors last time out.

On-loan Castleford Tigers halfback Danny Richardson is in line to make his Robins' debut after being named in the match-day 21.

Jack Brown, Jack Broadbent and Connor Barley have also been brought into the squad as Peters looks to shake up his side after their Challenge Cup exit.

The stats

The last meeting between these sides saw Hull KR run out 50-10 winners at Craven Park back in April.

Only fellow strugglers Hull FC have conceded more points (416) than the 412 by the London Broncos this season and the Airlie Birds have played a game more.

The Broncos have conceded an average of 37.5 points per game, while the Robins have been conceding an average of just 15.4.


The Broncos defence has been the big issue for the capital outfit this season and Hull KR have the attacking threats across the park that will cause the hosts problems.

Having put 50 points past the Broncos in their last meeting in early April, it is hard to see where London have improved enough in the past weeks to make this game a tight encounter.

While the Robins might not run away with this game on the road as easily, Rovers should have enough to fall on the right side of -26.5 handicap on offer here and put their Challenge Cup disappointment behind them.
