Gale warns Bulls over Broncos

Bradford's former London Broncos half-back Luke Gale is warning his team-mates not to under-estimate his old club when they meet at the Twickenham Stoop in the Tetley's Challenge Cup fifth round.

The Bulls beat the struggling Londoners 46-20 win in Super League in High Wycombe last month but Gale, who enjoyed a three-year spell with the Broncos before returning to Yorkshire, says they need to be wary of the Londoners' potential match-winners.

"Obviously we'll go in there in a positive frame of mind but you can't under-estimate them," Gale said.

"London can turn teams over. If you take them too lightly, they'll shock you.

"I know they've been at the foot of the table but they've got class players like Luke Dorn and some good young kids in Kieran Dixon and Daniel Sarginson."

London, who have lost all four previous Challenge Cup meetings with the Bulls, welcome back Australian centre David Howell, who broke his arm in the opening match of the season.

"He's done the hard work off the field," said Broncos coach Tony Rea. "It's terrific to have him back.

"He's been out a long time and he'll need to work hard to get into form."
