London Broncos coach Danny Ward says he "couldn't care less" about St Helens' decision to send a weakened team to Ealing for Sunday's top-versus-bottom Super League clash at the Trailfinders Ground.
Saints coach Justin Holbrook, whose side are 10 points clear at the top of the table, made no secret of his intention to rest a host of players ahead of next week's Challenge Cup semi-final against Halifax.
And Lachlan Coote, Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Kevin Naiqama, Mark Percival, Theo Fages, Alex Walmlsey, James Roby and Luke Thompson have all been left out of his 19-man squad.
Hobrook has recalled fringe players Danny Richardson, Jack Welsby and Adam Swift and is set to give debuts to Josh Eaves, Callum Hazzard, Josh Simm - the grandson of Saints legend Geoff Pimblett - and 17-year-old Lewis Dodd.
Holbrook's announcement earlier in the week caused a few ructions among the supporters of Leeds, Huddersfield and Hull KR, who are all just two points ahead of the Broncos going into round 23, but Ward is remaining typically phlegmatic.
"I've heard the grumblings but it's not my concern," said Ward, whose team beat an under-strength St Helens team in Ealing in June. He's well within his rights to do whatever he wants.
"They've had a fantastic season and, if he wants to rest players with a massive game, a Challenge Cup semi-final, next week, that's his business and St Helens' business. It's nothing to do with me. Obviously we have to do our homework on teams as any other club does so we do that."
Asked if Holbrook's move is unfair on other teams battling for survival near the foot of the table, Ward told PA: "I couldn't care less really. People will probably say it's only because it's happening to you that you're not bothered but I wouldn't care if they went up against those teams with under-13s playing, it's none of my business.
"I don't look at other teams' squads, I'm not looking at the squads Leeds, Hull KR and Huddersfield are playing against, it's all about us. I can only concentrate on preparing my boys for a very tough game against St Helens.
"People are kicking up a fuss because they are passionate about their clubs and they want them to survive but you can only concentrate on what you can control and that's my team and my squad and preparing them the best I can for St Helens. Whichever lads come down, it will be a tough game."
