London has taken all 7 decisions so far this year, with the latest game being an 8-3 thumping just two weeks ago. The current losing skid starting with that game, so maybe fortunes will turn and the Attack can not only end the streak against the team that it started with, but also claim their first victory of the season over the Knights.
