London Broncos Tony Rea has named his squad for the away match with Widnes Vikings on Friday (kick-off 8:00pm).

Rea has been forced to make a number of chances from the side that beat Sheffield Eagles last Friday, with Jamie Soward missing out with a back injury.

“We actually have quite a lot of injuries off the back of the other night. We’re a totally different team from the team that faced Sheffield. The big focus, despite what everyone would think, we’re massively focused on getting a good rhythm for this game against Widnes.

“The 17 that take to the field will be really clear on their mission and what they want to do as a team.

“There are some important challenges and opportunities for the guys making the squad, some blokes will get a chance this week to say they want to be part of this team. Ryan Shaw is likely to make his debut this week, Liam Colbon could be back.

“We genuinely have some bad knocks, we’re not resting anybody this week. Witt (calf) Clubb (knee), Robertson (hip and knee).

“Soward has a back injury, he’s travelled from Australia, he’s travelled to France and we’ve had a long trip to Sheffield because of the bus journey. He’s done a real lot of travelling, he’s stiffened up during the week, given his workload and what he’s been asked to come in and do his back was un-trainable today, so there was no way given the number of miles he’s travelled there was no way he could compete in this game safely.

“The first thing we said after the Sheffield game was that we’ll do this game right. It looks like to everybody that we’ve rested a heap of players, we haven’t, they couldn’t play.”
