London Skolars will face a London Broncos XIII in a pre-season friendly as part of their preparations for the 2019 Betfred League 1 campaign. The game, dubbed the ‘London Clash’, will be hosted at New River Stadium on Friday 25th January 2019 (kick-off 7pm).

Hector McNeil, London Skolars CEO, commented:

“This should be a very exciting game. Broncos being in Super League is huge for London Rugby League and this is the first time we have held this on a Friday night under lights. We are also excited to launch our new off field experience which we have put significant investment and organisation into to make Skolars games day much more of an event than just a match. We would encourage all fans of London Rugby League to attend and support the two professional teams in London.”

Jermaine Coleman, London Skolars Head Coach, added:

“The game is really good for us in terms of our preparation for the new season. The mixture of academy players and first teams players really gives us a challenge. It gives us an opportunity to blow the cobwebs off after the offseason and the boys are all excited to hopefully get some bragging rights in London.”

The game will follow the prestigious 2019 Capital Challenge against reigning Super League champions Wigan Warriors the previous week. New signings Iliess Macani, Liam Scott, Joseph Burchell, Clinton Hughes and Malikhi Lloyd-Jones will all be in contention to play in both matches.

The Broncos will make the cross-city trip to face Skolars ahead of their return to the Super League. They gained promotion from the Betfred Championship last season after winning the Million Pound Game against Toronto Wolfpack in Canada. London Broncos, commented:

“The pre season fixture with Skolars is one we always look forward too. It’s a great day out for our Academy boys and helps continue build the relationship between the London clubs”.
