The London Broncos welcome the Super League leaders, Huddersfield Giants, to The Twickenham Stoop on Saturday (KO 3pm) for their final home game of the season.

The Broncos will be looking to end their home campaign on a high and build on their courageous defeat to the Leeds Rhinos in their previous home game.

Tony Rea and his team had been determined to bounce back from their Challenge Cup semi-final thrashing and turned in one of their best performances of the season against the reigning champions.

However, the inform Giants will be a tough proposition for a Broncos side that has not won since July 12.

Meanwhile, the Giants have won each of their last six fixtures in the Super League, and a win will see them all but seal their first league leaders shield in the Super League era.

London has played Huddersfield 30 times in the Super league with the Giants winning 18 and the Broncos 12 of their meetings.

The two sides last met in February with the Giants running away 34-6 victors.

The Broncos will be motivated not only by the chance to topple the league leaders, but also by the possibility of climbing to within one point of 13th placed Salford City Reds with a win.

Should results go their way over the final three games the Broncos have every chance of climbing off the bottom of the Super League table.
