Hull K R vs London
Super League
7:45pm Friday 6th September

KCOM Craven Park

As you wander up the stairs into the first floor offices at the pavilion of all London Broncos’ Trailfinders Sports Ground home, you see a enormous image of the team celebrating the Million Pound Game triumph of last year.
It is a reminder of how the Broncos defeated the odds to defeat Toronto Wolfpack in Canada in the 2018 promotion decider, and how they got to this point in the first area after needing to win both of their remaining matches to create the Qualifiers and to reach the aforementioned decider.
Almost 12 months after, the group find themselves needing two successes out of their two remaining matches – this time to avoid relegation to the Championship after 1 year back.
Broncos head coach Danny Ward is aiming to use the past year’s experiences as his negative input must-win land.
„We’ve been in knock-out soccer situations before, we’ve had some must-win games and that is what experience does for you,“ Ward said.
„You have got to tap into that expertise, you know exactly what it feels like and you understand what it’s going to require.
„We have got to draw on these experiences for the lads who were at that Million Pound Game and again show them of the hard work we went through was to get all those minutes today.“
The Broncos head to KCOM Craven Park having won one, and the first of these matches is that the Friday off to Hull Kingston Rovers, live on Sky Sports and lost against the Robins so much.
One person who knows all about what’s currently waiting in store for your Londoners is Kieran Dixon, who spent two seasons playing for Rovers before returning for his second spell in 2017.
During this time the winger scored 28 tries in 39 appearances, along with featuring in the 2016 Challenge Cup final, with the memories of acting and the derbies using rivals Hull FC being affectionate memories.
„This was much different to what I’m used to,“ Dixon explained. „Obviously I had a great deal of growing up to do, leaving here and going around.
„I had been on my own and still young – not so I grew up a great deal, but I grew up only enough – but the rugby was amazing.
„To proceed out, where you’ve got a loyal fan-base although not the greatest, to playing at a stadium with six or 7,000 people weekly was eye-opening as well as the very first Hull Derby was something I’ll never forget.
„They were incredible games and I’m glad I played in a few of these, but I am happy to return home now.“
Ward will find himself up against one of his former tutors in Hull KR head coach Tony Smith, who was in charge at Leeds Rhinos when the Broncos boss made his way as a young prop at Headingley.
Smith has made three changes to Rovers’ 19-man group away to Catalans Dragons that increased the team two points clear from the bottom-placed Broncos.
Victory on Friday are the ideal way for Smith to top off a week that saw that a fresh three-year contract is agreed by him with the team and will secure the Yorkshire side’s place in Super League for 2020.
„He’s a great coach, most likely among the greatest I have worked with,“ Ward explained. „He was big for my game coming at Leeds, he helped me and he’s a quality coach.
„He has certainly attracted some stability there and they’ve clearly seen a great deal of progress because he has just signed a new contract, which is fantastic for both Hull KR to understand where they’re likely to be using Tony and I’m sure he will continue to push them to be one of the best clubs.
„But hopefully we’ll find the work completed Friday night.“
Ward has made just 1 change to the Broncos’ 19-man group out of last Sunday defeat at home with Daniel Hindmarsh substituting Mark Ioane, to Leeds Rhinos.
Hull KR 19-man team: Craig Hall, Ben Crooks, Jimmy Keinhorst, Ryan Shaw, Danny McGuire, Robbie Mulhern, Mose Masoe, Joel Tomkins, Weller Hauraki, Mitch Garbutt, Chris Atkin, Danny Addy, Kane Linnett, Josh Drinkwater, Will Dagger, Daniel Murray, Matt Parcell, Dean Hadley, Kyle Trout
London Broncos 19-man squad: Jordan Abdull, Guy Armitage, Eddie Battye, Rob Butler, James Cunningham, Kieran Dixon, Matty Fozard, Matt Gee, Daniel Hindmarsh, Elliot Kear, Olsi Krasniqi, Brock Lamb, Will Lovell, Nathan Mason, Ryan Morgan, Jay Pitts, Alex Walker, Rhys Williams, Luke Yates
