London Broncos go in search of their first Super League victory of the new campaign with Wakefield Wildcats visit The Hive on Saturday afternoon.

The Broncos are slowly but surely coming together after being virtually rebuilt during the off-season while Wakefield are finding their feet following financial trouble of their own.

London gave Warrington a brief scare last time out before eventually being blown away while the Wildcats bagged their first points of the campaign after dismantling Catalan Dragons on Sunday.

Broncos head coach Tony Rea has named Australian forward Atelea Vea in his 19-man squad despite only arriving in England on Thursday.

Half-back Josh Drinkwater, who had to pull out of the Warrington game after sustaining a hamstring injury in the warm up, is included alongside prop James Greenwood

"We're really looking forward to it. There's a lot of hype around it and there's going to be a lot of energy in the game," Rea told the club's official website.

Development

"We're growing and developing strongly as a team. They had their first good result last week so it looks like being a really good game."

Wildcats head coach Richard Agar welcomes back centre Dean Collis from suspension while Scott Anderson is back after a knee injury.

New arrival, Harry Siejka is also named in the squad but is unlikely to feature after arriving in the UK just last Saturday.

Danny Washbrook misses out with a calf strain that could keep him out for two weeks whilst Andy Raleigh (hamstring) and Richard Moore (hamstring/calf) continue to work towards full fitness.

"A lot of our build up has been about attitude. We have got to match, if not beat, their attitude," Agar told the YEP. "It is a really important game for us.

We have to keep trying to improve our performances and chalk up a few more wins. We have come off the back of a good win. It was a shot in the arm for us, but we think we'll get a tougher game this week."

London Broncos: Atkins, Bishay, Caton-Brown, Cook, Cunningham, Drinkwater, Farrar, Forster, Foster, Greenwood, Griffin, Krasniqi, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, O'Callaghan, Slyney, Solomona, Vea.

Wakefield Wildcats: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Lyne, Sykes, Godinet, Anderson, McShane, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Wildie, Ryan, Tautai, Smith, Molloy, Siejka, Sammut, Scruton, Riley.
