It wouldn’t be a Challenge Cup final weekend without the now traditional Friday Night Lights encounter at London Skolars, this season the opposition being Betfred League One fourth placed side Hunslet.

The 4G pitch at the New River Stadium in Wood Green, a ten mile drive around the North Circular, always attracts a good following of diehard Rugby League supporters down in the nationals capital to make a weekend of it.

But two important league points were up for grabs as Hunslet looked to cement their play-off spot while a loss would spell the end of the Skolars chase for the play-offs and the second promotion spot for another season.

Two sides looking for some winning form met at the KCOM Stadium as roller coaster side Hull FC took on a London Broncos side who know that every point is absolutely crucial for their survival in Super League.

Hull FC are still third in the table despite two consecutive defeats, however, a loss tonight could have seen them end the weekend in fifth place.

London Broncos were bottom of the table but if they could get the victory then they would go level on points with the Rhinos and the Giants and lift themselves above Hull’s city neighbours KR into eleventh.

FC were without the injured Albert Kelly and Andre Savelio, while Danny Ward selected Sam Davis, Matty Fleming and James Cunningham for his run on side.

A win would do little to improve either sides league position, but would do a great deal more for team moral and aspirations for the remainder of the season, as we head towards the half way point in Super League XXIV.

Eighth placed Wigan Warriors needed to win by fifty-five points or more to go above the Salford Red Devils, whereas the London Broncos, currently propping up the table, needed a forty-two point winning margin to claw themselves ahead of Hull KR.

All the smart money was on more misery for Danny Ward’s travelling London Broncos, but Wigan were fragile enough in 2019 to be worried about every match they play.

They say defence wins games.

That certainly proved the case for Championship coach of the year Danny Ward’s London team in Toronto.

 

In a tense and exciting game that managed to avoid any tries at all, the Broncos won a Super League place in 2019 by two penalty goals to one – or four points to two.

Hull KR’s victory had just pushed the Toronto Wolfpack into the Million Pound Game position and they knew that a home victory against London Broncos was critical.

If  they could win by thirty-three points or more, then they could finish the weekend in second place.

The Broncos were in town, themselves with an eye on the top three and knowing that a six point win would lift them above KR and their opponents today.

Both sides looked strong as they emerged into the Canadian sunshine at the Lamport Stadium.

Honours were shared in 2018 with a win apiece and both sides came into todays game on the back of narrow losses a fortnight ago.

Ex-team mates Kevin Sinfield and Danny Ward faced a head-to-head battle at the Trailfinders Sports Ground as the Leeds Rhinos travelled to Ealing, London to take on the Broncos.

Both sides came into the game after winning their opening Qualifiers game, with both looking to make it two out of two as they continue their quest for Super League in 2019.

The Rhinos bad luck with injuries continued last week against Toulouse but they did wecome back Stevie Ward and Liam Sutcliffe to their ranks.

 

It was a strong London side, captained by ex-Rhino Jay Pitts, and Ward was determined to make sure that his side gave his former employers a nightmare day at the office.

Some things seem to remain constant in Super League.

Hull FC are the perennial under achievers, Leeds season comes alive in the play-offs where as Warrington’s goes to pot, and then there are the trials and tribulations of the London Broncos.



Once more the talk about the Capital’s only professional Rugby League club has been unsurprisingly negative given the precarious position they have found themselves in over the close season.

One in which their very existence was threatened like never before with no home ground or training facility to use, a threadbare playing roster and back room staff.

A Jamie Soward-inspired London Broncos side overcame a 16 point deficit to beat Hull KR 34-22 at MS3 Craven Park.



The Robins raced into a 16-0 lead with tries from Josh Guzdek, Craig Hall and Omari Caro but gave away two soft tries before the break.



Inspired by Jamie Soward, making his final appearance for the Broncos before linking up with the Penrith Panthers, and Mason Caton-Brown who scored a hat-trick London ran out as deserved winners and avoid the wooden spoon finishing ahead of Salford City Reds at the bottom of the table.

LONDON'S heavy loss on Saturday led to a reader contacting me about one of my favourite hobby horses - an English team in the NRL.



But this reader, whose given name was Leigh of Dallas (?) came at the idea from an interesting angle.

What are the drawbacks of an NRL franchises based in Leeds or Manchester? That it would completely overshadow Super League and effectively relegate it to what the Brisbane comp has become.

London's full time status was the telling factor in their 29-10 victory over the Sheffield Eagles to end the hosts' 12 month unbeaten streak at the Don Valley Stadium.



The contrasting game plans of both sides were clear throughout the match.

London attempted to make the most of their size advantage to pound the part time Eagles into submission.



The hosts, meanwhile, attempted to win the contest through a willingness to move the ball that has made them one of the nation's most exciting teams to watch.

Wildcats skipper, Danny Kirmond scored a hatrick to help his side past an understrength London team.



The Broncos were missing eleven first team players and were 30-4 down by the break.



But in-form winger, Kieran Dixon scored a quick-fire double to lesser the deficit to 16 points however Kirmond’s third and tries from Frankie Mariano and Kyle Wood made the full-time score 46-14.
