London Broncos 34-6 Halifax RLFC

William Barthau playing for the London Broncos.


London Broncos beat Halifax 34-6 at Trailfinders Sports Ground as the capital club tightened their grip on a place in the top four. In what turned out to be the Broncos’ seventh consecutive league win, Kieran Dixon scored twice while William Barthau continued his good form with another try.

The hosts led 22-0 at the break and got off the mark in the 12th minute through Dixon, who couldn’t convert his own try. Barthau soon followed the winger to a four pointer, with the Frenchman currently playing some great rugby which was on show at the Summer Bash last week. Andy Ackers, Rhys Williams and Jay Pitts all touched down before the break to give London a comfortable advantage ahead of the second period.

After the restart, Ben Johnston notched Halifax’s only try of the contest as the West Yorkshire club tried to get back in the match. However, their effort was in vain as Dixon and Mark Ioane both registered scores either side of the hour mark to seal the win.
