London Broncos are set to take on London Skolars this Friday in the Capital Challenge and they’ve announced the squad set to face off in the London derby.
Broncos announced their squad numbers just earlier this week and there were some shock omissions purely on a numbers point with shirts 18, 19, 20 and 21 left vacant and the Broncos only boasting a squad of 22 players.
That said their Director of Rugby, Mike Eccles, has announced the team that will line up for their first pre-season game of 2023.
Broncos announced their squad via their Twitter and it features the full 22-man squad with an additional two trialists.

Upon the initial announcement of their squad it was revealed that Italian international Ronny Palumbo had parted ways with the club and was set to return to his country of birth, Australia.
London will feature in an incredibly competitive Championship season with plenty of clubs making plenty of additions with former Man of Steel winner Luke Gale signing for promoted Keighley, highlighting the strength of the squad.
