Warrington welcome back Lee Briers and Joel Monaghan for Sunday's clash with London Broncos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Briers was dropped for the 20-20 draw at Hull FC last weekend for disciplinary reasons but has been recalled to Tony Smith's 19-man squad.

Monaghan, meanwhile, was sidelined for the game against the Airlie Birds due to a knee injury. The Australian's availability this weekend means Wales international Rhys Williams misses out.

Hooker Mickey Higham is out of action due to an elbow injury he picked up at the KC Stadium, though it is hoped he will not be ruled out for too long.

Cook available

London Broncos return to a venue where they were beaten 82-6 last season, though this is now a much-changed squad - there were no fewer than seven debutants in the starting line-up to face St Helens last weekend.

Coach Rob Powell is set to give a debut to former Bradford and Hull KR forward Matt Cook, who has recovered from injury.

Centre David Howell is also now available again after serving a six-match suspension imposed last August for biting and takes the place of winger Liam Colbon, who has a groin problem.

Ben Bolger makes way for Cook, while Dan Sarginson and Karl Temata are both still out injured.

The Broncos were beaten 34-24 by Saints in their opening fixture, though they did push last year's beaten Grand Finalists all the way to the final hooter.

"Given the relatively positive individual performances last week against St Helens we are in a position where we've picked a similar squad for the game up at Warrington," Powell said on the London club's website.

Warrington squad: Atkin, Blythe, C. Bridge, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Evans, Grix, Harrison, Hill, M. Monaghan, J. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.

London Broncos squad: Bailey, Bryan, Caro, Clubb, Cook, Dixon, Dorn, Golden, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Rodney, Witt.
