Hull hold off London

 Hull hold off London

London Broncos 24-28 Hull FC

Josh Griffin scored two tries as Hull FC moved into the top half of the Super League table with a narrow 28-24 win at London Broncos.

The hosts had led 14-10, with Elliot Kear and Eloi Pelissier scoring tries, but Hull hit back with 18 unanswered points to move ahead, with Griffin and Albert Kelly among the try scorers.

Jordan Abdull and Rhys Williams touched down for the Broncos and they had a chance to win it with a penalty under the Hull posts.  

But the experienced visitors held firm for their fourth win of the season, moving them up to fifth in the table.

The hosts, on their return to Super League this term, have enjoyed success at home, with only Castleford Tigers lowering their colours, but they will be left to rue not taking their chances in an opening 40 they enjoyed the better of.
