Hull FC have been boosted by the return of talented loose forward Joe Westerman for Sunday's trip to London Broncos, but they'll have to do without two key players.
The return of long-term absentee Westerman alongside half back Richard Horne is the positive news for the Black and Whites, but it's tempered by the loss of Mark O'Meley and Kirk Yeaman.
Both players were named for the recent win over Leeds Rhinos, although Yeaman didn't play, and they both miss out this time around.
Horne returns from a groin injury in time for the trip to the capital and is pushing for a place, whilst Westerman is set to face the club he came up against when he dislocated his shoulder in his last appearance back in February at the KC Stadium.
The other change sees young half back Danny Nicklas come back into the 19-man squad in place of fellow playmaker Jamie Ellis.
London Broncos head coach Rob Powell has named squad for the match which goes 'on the road' to Gillingham this Sunday.
The only casualty from last week's squad is Matt Cook who picked up an injury against Huddersfield Giants.
The Broncos are still without Liam Colbon who is recovering from a successful shoulder reconstruction, Jason Golden who remains absent with a sore neck and ribs and Julien Rinaldi who continues his recovery from ankle ligament damage.
Squad v London
Aspinwall, Briscoe, Crooks, Horne, Houghton, Kent, Lynch, Manu, Moa, Nicklas, O'Carroll, Pitts, Russell, Sharp, Seymour, Tickle, Turner, Westerman, Whiting
