RUGBY LEAGUE: Oxford are looking for a response

5:30am Friday 13th June 2014

OXFORD RL aim to bounce back from their 36-22 defeat against Gateshead Thunder when they host London Skolars on Sunday (3).

But despite a third straight loss, they are only five points off the Kingstone Press Championship One play-offs.

Coach Tony Benson is confident his side can get it right.

“I am not concerned at all as we have been playing some really good stuff,” he said.

Skipper Alex Thompson could return after illness, while Jimmy Rowland (hamstring) faces a late fitness test.

But Chris Clarke (rib) and Luke Evans (muscle) are out.

Oxford RL: Baird, Benson, Bentley, Blaney, Briggs, Brooker, Connick, Crabtree, Davies, Ellison , Hadden, Hayles, Hoggins, S Morris, Mulkeen, Osborn, Rowland, Rice, Sharratt, Temata, Thompson, Newton, Winfield.
