Match Preview


Rovers ready for Broncos battle

Part-timers Featherstone will be hoping to pull off a giant-killing act for the second successive year when they take on London Broncos at the Twickenham Stoop in the fourth round of the Tetley's Challenge Cup.

Twelve months ago Rovers won at Castleford before providing Wigan with a scare in the fifth round and former London forward Lamont Bryan believes his old club are "there for the taking".

The Broncos have yet to win a home game in Super League so far this season and have conceded 160 points in their last four matches.

"I can't wait to get stuck into them," said Bryan, who moved from the Broncos at the end of last season. "There's extra bragging rights at stake for me.

"We can take a lot of confidence from the cup run we had last season and we know we can beat every team on our day.

"London are definitely there for the taking - they've had some tough results recently and we know we can match them so it should be a great game."

Wary of Featherstone's Cup pedigree - they won the trophy in 1967, 1973 and 1983 - London coach Tony Rea is wheeling out the big guns, with Luke Dorn returning from injury to line up alongside fellow Aussies Craig Gower and Michael Witt.

"We're not holding anyone back," Rea said. "We're playing our very best group."
