Greg Eden scored his third try of the Betfred Super League season as Castleford Tigers sent out a statement of intent, going top with a 40-6 win at London Broncos.
The Tigers, who have reached at least the semi-finals in the last two seasons, scored four first-half tries to put the result beyond doubt before adding three more in the second half.
The Broncos, promoted from the Championship last season, hit back through Rhys Williams after Peter Mata'utia's first effort for the Tigers.
But the visitors quickly took control and ran in scores from Jake Trueman, Junior Moors, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Liam Watts, Eden and Jordan Rankin to maintain their winning start.
Castleford Tigers boss Daryl Powell said: "We knew it was going to be tough here and it was. It is a big win and it puts us in a great position after just three games. We picked up another injury (Adam Milner), which is a blow for us, but we showed great attitude – I was really pleased with that."
London Broncos boss Danny Ward said: "It is a very tough one to take and it’s lesson learnt. We did not think we could do much more, we competed well and threw the ball around."
