London Broncos 74-12 Oldham RLFC


London Broncos handed Oldham an almighty beating at Trailfinders Sports Ground as Andrew Henderson’s men triumphed 74-12. The capital club were 30-6 up at the break before putting on the burners in the second period. Braces from Kieran Dixon, Api Pewhairangi, Ben Hellwell, Daniel Harrison, Rhys Williams and Jarrod Sammut helped the Broncos to a superb win.

London got off to a great start thanks to a sixth-minute try from winger Dixon. Pewhairangi was off target with the conversion attempt. Ten minutes after the opening score, London doubled their advantage through Hellewell on his return to the squad. Pewhairangi couldn’t convert. Williams bagged the hosts’ third try of the game after a timely break from full-back Alex Walker. It wasn’t third time lucky for Pewhairangi as his conversion went astray. However, any frustration from the half-back will have gone away when he crossed the whitewash minutes after Walker’s effort. The kicking duties went to Dixon, who converted. Hellewell and Pewhairangi completed their braces before the half-time hooter, but the final try of the first 40 minutes went to George Tyson. Former Bronco Scott Leatherbarrow converted.

Second-rower Harrison started the second half in fine form with two tries in eight minutes before Sammut and Dixon joined in the act with four pointers apiece soon after. With the hour mark approaching, Mark Ioane crashed over the whitewash to make it 56-6 before Dixon improved the score with another conversion. Jay Pitts and Williams both crossed the whitewash in the final quarter before Liam Thompson notched Oldham’s second try of the game. However, with a minute to go, Sammut completed his brace to send London over the 70 point mark. Dixon converted.
