Broncos to blood new faces

London Broncos will field their three close-season signings against London Skolars in the ninth annual Capital Challenge.

The match will take place at the Honourable Artillery Company's grounds in London on Friday afternoon.

Shane Grady, Tommy Lee and Alex Hurst have been included in coach Tony Rea's 29-man squad for the Broncos' first pre-season friendly.

The only player unavailable is second rower Matt Cook as he continues his recovery from knee surgery.

"Everyone will play," said Rea. "The fight begins to earn a right to get a shirt and create momentum for the team.

"There are two things I'll be looking. The number one will be conditioning and being able to do your job physically and the number two is combinations."
