London Broncos flier Kieran Dixon is set to make his first Super League appearance of the season this weekend, after being named in Joey Grima’s 19-man squad to face Leeds Rhinos.
Dixon made his comeback from a serious knee injury with two dual-registration appearances for Hemel Stags in recent weeks – but he looks like being included as the Broncos seek their first win of the season against next weekend’s Challenge Cup finalists. Under-19s forward Toby Everett could also make his first ever first team appearance having impressed this season in the u19s .
Making way for Dixon and Everett are Joel Wicks and Will Lovell. Alex Foster is recovering from a shoulder injury so misses out while James Greenwood is still recovering from a leg injury but is expected to feature before the end of the season.
London Broncos 19-man squad to face Leeds Rhinos: Atkins, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Drinkwater, Everett, Farrar, Griffin, Keyes, Krasniqi, Mataitonga, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, Slyney, Solomona, Thomas, Vea, Wallace.
