London Broncos 36-30 Featherstone Rovers

Report

A late fightback from London Broncos helped the capital club to a tenth successive win while strengthening their position in second place. Three tries in five minutes from Kieran Dixon, Elliot Kear and Alex Walker proved decisive for Andrew Henderson’s men who are on a great roll at the minute.

Featherstone had the upper hand going into the break as they led 18-16. Jon Sharp’s side picked up the first two tries of the contest thanks to Jordan Baldwinson and Misi Taulapapa. Ian Hardman converted both. Matty Gee and Alex Walker replied with a four pointer apiece but just one conversion from Dixon meant the Broncos were still two points behind. Frankie Mariano and William Barthau exchanged converted tries as both teams traded blows ahead of the interval.

Andy Bostock’s try in the 47th minute gave the West Yorkshire club a two score lead but four successive scores from the Broncos turned the game on its head and the spoils were staying at Trailfinders. Jarrod Sammut, Dixon, Kear and Walker all crossed the whitewash for London who just don’t know when they’re beat. Matty Wildie’s try for Rovers proved nothing but consolation as the West Yorkshire club missed a big chance to take a step closer to Qualifiers rugby.
