HEAD Coach Rhys Lovegrove has today named his 21-man squad for Sunday’s Betfred League One opener against Doncaster RL at Cougar Park.

Three players are in line to make their first competitive appearance for the club after missing March’s Betfred Challenge Cup defeat to the London Broncos.

Scott Murrell, QLT, and Zach Braham, could all make their debuts for Keighley come 3pm on Sunday afternoon.

As well as the potential debutants, both Jake Webster and Dan Hawksworth could make their first appearances of the season after also missing out on the trip to the capital earlier this year.

Taylor Prell is unavailable for selection meaning he joins Wellington Albert (Ankle), Alix Stephenson (Leg), and Morgan Robinson (Concussion) on the sidelines for the Round One visit of the Dons.

Jack Miller goes into this encounter against his former club requiring just two points to reach a century in Cougars colours.
