YOU would imagine the last thing a new-look London Broncos would have wanted for a first away game of the season is a visit to last season's league winners Warrington.
But on the contrary, one of the London side’s new summer arrivals, Liam Colbon insisted this week they have nothing to fear from Sunday’s trip to the Wolves' lair.
The winger was on the receiving end of a last-gasp defeat to Warrington on his last visit to Haliwell with previous club Hull KR, while some of his new team-mates still remember the nightmare of their 82-6 mauling at the hands of the Wolves last season.
But Colbon says that is all in the past and if a much changed Broncos can cut out the few basic errors which cost them victory over St Helens on the season's opening day last weekend, they can spring a surprise.
He said: “You just have to look at Warrington’s personnel to know how good they are as they have internationals all over the pitch and the guys in key positions have played together for a while now.
"They play an open well-drilled style of rugby that when they get it right can hurt you, but I feel we are exceptionally well equipped to deal with their threat.
“We missed a couple off tries against St Helens by messing up a couple of four on threes in attacking positions and we gave away penalties on the fourth tackle and you can’t do that against a team opf that quality.
“But if we can get our house in order in that regard we’ll make great strides.”
The 27-year-old started his career at Wigan, before spending the last two seasons with Hull KR where he scored 12 tries in 27 appearances.
He has now crossed the great divide and moved south and he admits he already has a liking for London life.
“It’s a different lifestyle with a much faster pace, but I love it,” he said. “It was a big move for me, but I needed a fresh challenge and with the personnel who have been signed it just seemed like an exciting place to be."
