COACH Shane Rampling has bolstered the squad with a double swoop ahead of the first home fixture of the campaign for St Albans Centurions on Saturday.

Second row Ryan Douglas has joined after his season finished with NCL Premier outfit Rochdale Mayfield.

Tim Rangihuna, who has been playing in Sydney, Australia, is scheduled to arrive in the country to bolster the half/hooker berth.

On Saturday, Cents host South London Storm in a repeat of last year's Grand Final. Kick off at the Recreation Ground, Colney Heath, is at 2.30pm.

Stand out forward Andy Lake will be missing for Cents due to Lionhearts international action. Paul Maloney, Russ Kellaway and Rudi van der Mewre return to the squad to give Rampling more options. The Storm, coached by former Cent Marcus Tobin will be looking to bounce back after an opening week defeat to Ipswich Rhinos.
