London Broncos 30-16 Toulouse Olympique

Report

London Broncos picked up a vital 30-16 victory over Toulouse Olympique at Trailfinders Sports Ground to start the Easter period in the right way. Winger Rhys Williams registered a brace for the Broncos, who had been on a downward slope after defeats to Sheffield Eagles and Featherstone Rovers. Toulouse entered round ten in second place but a defeat to the Broncos will leave them seeking a statement win against Hull Kingston Rovers on Monday.

The Broncos led 12-10 at the break, with the first points coming 26 minutes in when Jay Pitts touched down for the hosts. Api Pewhairangi converted, as he did after William Barthau crossed the whitewash to extend the capital club’s lead. Gavin Marguerite and Mourad Kriouache both notched tries before half-time for Toulouse but only one conversion was successful from Mark Kheirallah.

After the restart, Kheirallah made amends for his one missed kick as he powered his way to four points as Toulouse went ahead. However, the Broncos responded well with two tries in six minutes as Welsh international Williams scored a quick fire brace. Pewhairangi converted one try to make it 22-18 to the Broncos with just under half an hour to go. The half-back kicked a penalty to further the lead to two scores as the final quarter approached. Matt Davis sealed the win for London with a try seven minutes from time, Pewhairangi added the extras.
