SAINTS will take more than 1,000 fans down to London today where they will play the Broncos at The Stoop in the shadow of Twickenham.

After week off, Saints are refreshed despite their injury absentees and go into the game against Super League's basement side with a bit of a bounce.

But coach Paul Wellens has warned against heading down with the expectation of running up a cricket score.

Instead he wants his side to approach like any other Super League game and not put the cart before the horse.

Wellens said: "I have challenged to play is to go out there and play a tough game.

"That's the important thing - whenever we've gone into a game thinking about scoring points it invariably turns out the other because you don't value the hard work and don’t want to do the tough stuff required to score points.

"It's important to get the balance right this weekend and we prioritise what is the most important thing and that's with you know with a tough mindset and wanting to work out for each other.

"I'm happy with where the group is - we're in a good frame of mind at the moment. They're really working hard for each other and that's what we need to reproduce it on the weekend."

London kept faith with the part time squad that secured promotion to the top flight but they have won just one game this season, but they have stuck together.  

"London have got a number of threats, but Hakim Miloudi has been a good player for a long time," Wellens said.

"He's a player that can something a bit different.

"He's a very off the cuff style player and very dangerous and hard to handle.

"He’s one threat but there are a number of others, but what's probably more stand out for me, is despite where London sit on the table, the coach has done a great job in getting them competing for each other.

"And that's what they do every week and we're going to we're going to have to rise to that challenge because they are going to be enthused, especially by the return to the Stoop that will mean a lot."
