Batley Bulldogs 4-42 London Broncos


London Broncos hammered Batley Bulldogs 42-4 at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, completing a brilliant Easter period for the capital club who beat Toulouse on Good Friday. Hooker James Cunningham showed why he was handed the Championship Young Player of the Year accolade last year as he got under the skin of Batley while crossing the whitewash on two occasions.

The Broncos were 16-0 up at the break thanks to tries from Elliot Kear, Jay Pitts and Cunningham. Api Pewhairangi converted two from three, in the absence of Jarrod Sammut. Matt Garside got London off to a great start in the second half as the former Sheffield man touched down to extend his side’s lead to 20 points. Brad Day notched the Bulldogs’ only try of the game on 51 minutes before the visitors cruised to victory with four more scores. Mark Ioane, Cunningham, Lewis Bienek and Kam Pearce-Paul all touched down for London, who ran riot in the final quarter while the Bulldogs fell to pieces.
