Featherstone Rovers 16-42 London Broncos


London Broncos retained their 100% win rate at Summer Bash with a 42-16 victory over Featherstone Rovers at Bloomfield Road.

The capital club led 14-0 at the break and they struck with two tries early on in the game thanks to Jarrod Sammut and Alex Walker.

Both four pointers were set up by the boot of William Barthau, who had a hand in everything good for the Broncos.

London were dealt a blow when James Cunningham went off injured but the penalty saw Kieran Dixon kick his third goal of the game.

Featherstone needed a quick response after the restart and they got just that when John Davies crashed over from close range. Cory Aston added the extras and it was game on.

However, London didn’t panic despite conceding and they scored twice in as many minutes to extend their lead.

Andy Ackers exploited a gap from dummy-half to cross the whitewash before Alex Walker claimed a high Barthau kick to touch down.

Both sides went down to 12 men when Ian Hardman and Elliot Kear both saw yellow but soon after, Michael Channing registered a try against his former side.

In the final quarter, Scott Turner and Davies both notched consolations for the Rovers before Barthau and Dixon rounded off a great day at the office for London with the final two tries.
