London Broncos 42-12 Bradford Bulls


London Broncos showcased their strength with a seven-try performance against Bradford Bulls, ending in a 42-12 win at Trailfinders Sports Ground. The Broncos had notched five tries by the end of the first half as they led 30-6 before a more quiet first half saw the capital club seal a straightforward victory.

Alex Walker got the ball rolling for the Broncos with a try in the opening stages before Welsh international Elliot Kear also touched down ten minutes later. Kevin Larroyer responded for the visitors with his first try in Bulls colours, the conversion from former Bronco Oscar Thomas was successful. However, three tries in the final 15 minutes brought the first half to a brilliant close for London. Matt Garside struck twice, either side of a William Barthau score in the midst of a hailstorm. Sammut was 100% from the tee with five conversions from as many attempts.

It took 17 minutes for the first try of the second period and it went the way of Bradford thanks to bustling forward Colton Roche. Thomas converted to cut the lead to 18 points at 30-12. A penalty goal from Sammut in the final quarter restored London’s four score advantage before the half-back crossed for a try of his own. The final four pointer of the game came courtesy of Kieran Dixon five minutes from time as the Broncos surpassed the 40 point mark. Unfortunately for Sammut, his perfect goal-kicking record for the match was abruptly ended as his touchline conversion attempt drifted wide. A good day at the office for the Broncos while Bradford will be looking to get back on the horse next weekend when they take on Batley Bulldogs.
