COUGARS head coach Rhys Lovegrove has named his 21-man squad for tomorrow’s Challenge Cup Round One tie away at the London Broncos.

There is a potential for six players to make their competitive debut for the club in the capital as Lovegrove looks to test his side against full-time opposition.

Father-son duo Quentin & Phoenix Laulu-Togaga’e are both included on the back of their history-making appearances in last Saturday’s Joe Phillips Memorial Trophy defeat against Bulls.

Also in line to make competitive debuts for the club are last weekend’s Man of the Match Charlie Graham, Brenden Santi, Robert Matamosi and Zach Braham.

Josh Lynam (quad) is also named in the squad following a late withdrawal last week after failing a fitness test on the Friday evening at training.

While the club stalwart returns, the medical team at Cougar Park have been kept more than busy elsewhere.

After failing a fitness test of his own last week, Scott Murrell (calf) has once again been ruled out this weekend.

Joining Murrell on the unavailable list for this weekend is Bobby Darbyshire (wrist) and Jake Webster (paternity leave).

Webster has returned to training this week, but the trip to London comes to soon for him to return to the field after over a year out.

Wellington Albert (ankle), Alix Stephenson (leg), and Spencer Darley (shielding) remain the three long-term absentees for the Cougars.
