Kingstone Press Championship Match Preview – London Broncos V Whitehaven

On the back of a comprehensive victory over Doncaster last week, Haven travel to the Capital and look to complete the double over London after a tight victory at The Recreation Ground earlier in the season.

Last Time Out
London travelled to Cougar Park to take on Halifax as the Shay was have work done to the pitch. The change of venue didn’t upset the “home side.” Fax scored 8 tries with man of the match Ben Johnstone scoring a try. London started the brightest scoring off their first set but couldn’t compete with Fax despite scoring 22 points.

Haven took a massive step to securing their place for next season with a victory in their second visit to Castle Park in three weeks. It was the first half where Haven where dominant scoring 38 unanswered points and scoring another two tries just after the break to make it 50, Haven seemed to switch off and Donny scored three tries but a performance which Haven coach James Coyle was happy with.

Key battle
Haven’s pack has been gradually improving over the season and with Dave Allen and Sam Brooks putting 80 minutes shifts have been on top form, they will need this again this week to beat a London side who have themselves been improving with coach Andrew Henderson making a successful playing return. The pack where will this game will be won and lost.

Prediction – London to have too much skill around the pitch for Haven – London by 22.
