London Broncos will aim to win their first Super League game of the season when they host Hull FC at Plough Lane on Sunday afternoon.

The capital club have lost all 10 of their games so far, conceding 394 points in the process. 

Despite their poor start, Sunday's opponents Hull are only two points better off in the standings, and the Broncos will fancy their chances of moving level with the Black and Whites.

Team news

Broncos coach Mike Eccles will be boosted by the return of prop Lewis Bienek and Josh Rourke, who both return to the fold for the first time this season after suffering injuries in pre-season.

While Bienek is expected to feature, Eccles has confirmed Rourke will just be part of the 21-man squad as he tries to work his way back into full fitness.

Hull FC interim coach Simon Grix makes three changes to the squad that lost 24-6 to Warrington Wolves last week. Zach Jebson, Matty Laidlaw and Tiaki Chan have all been named in the travelling party, with the latter set to make his debut after joining earlier this week on loan from Wigan Warriors.

The trio replace Liam Tindall, who has joined Championship side Bradford Bulls on loan, Jack Brown and Ed Chamberlain.

Brown has joined Hull KR permanently, while Chamberlain was recalled by parent club Leigh this week.

The stats

The Broncos have lost every one of their league games this year, conceding 394 points, while they have only scored 82 points.

Hull FC have only registered one win all season, and they have also conceded over 350 points this year already.

That win came against Sunday's hosts in March, but they only won by a slender 28-24 scoreline in East Yorkshire.


Sunday's Super League encounter is one for the purists, and it is difficult to predict a winner, especially with both teams out of form.

Hull FC's poor start to the season saw Tony Smith lose his job, and eight defeats in a row suggests morale could be at an all-time low.

London, at least, were expected to struggle, and they will identify Sunday's game as their best chance to get off the mark.

They were narrowly beaten by the Black and Whites in March, and they should not be disgraced this weekend either.
