Leeds Rhinos vs London Broncos Match Report

Which ever way you look at it, this was a disastrous loss for the once mighty Leeds Rhinos.  Two late cores by the Broncos resulted in a fourth straight loss for the Rhinos with some serious question marks about the quality of over seas recruits being asked.

London on the other hand are a team characterised by passion, commitment and teamwork and coach Danny Ward, an ex Leeds man of some repute, will be ecstatic with this victory.

The Broncos were never spectacular, but they did nt need to be and were 8 -0 up at half time thanks to a Jay Pitts score and a conversion and penalty goal by Kieran Dixon.
But the home team turned the game around through Richie Myler and Trent Merrin before Tom Briscoe crossed to extend their advantage to 16-8. To his Credit Trent Merrin;s score was top quality and we have seen plenty of excellent touches by the Kangaroo international. Whether he will have the same massive impact as a Sinfield , or a Paacock or a Morley or even a Kyle Leuluai remains highly debatable.

London however pressed on and a  crafty score from the impressive Matty Fozard brought the visitors back into the game as Leeds defenders watched on admiringly, before Man Mountain Will Lovell seized on an opportunity with two minutes remaining.

This was chaotic and Leeds Rhinos were defeated and big questions are being asked about where Leeds go from Here. The Broncos however move on with confidence with three fine victories already recorded in this super league season

Leeds: Walker, Briscoe, Newman, Hurrell, Handley, Lolohea, Myler, Peteru, Parcell, Oledzki, Merrin, Ferres, Sutcliffe.
