Toronto Wolfpack put themselves back on course for promotion after gaining a 34-22 win over London Broncos in the third round of the Super 8s Qualifiers.
The Wolfpack, who began their campaign with an away victory over Halifax RLFC, bounced back from their home defeat by Hull KR with a routine victory over the Broncos.
Toronto, who had beaten London twice in the regular season, led 20-0 at half-time thanks to tries from Blake Wallace, Gareth O’Brien and Chase Stanley and four goals from the boot of O’Brien.
London show a valiant effort in the 2nd half, but the Wolfpack hold strong to win the game 34-22. @MasonCatonBrown earns the @airtransat First Star with strong play and a highlight reel try. Thanks for a fantastic game @LondonBroncosRL and an excellent Air Show @LetsGoToTheEX! 🐺 pic.twitter.com/h5e55NQIQh— Toronto Wolfpack (@TOwolfpack) September 1, 2018
They added further tries through Josh McCrone and Mason Caton-Brown – his first for the club – to extend their advantage to 32-0 before the visitors staged a rally that brought them tries through Rhys Williams, Alex Walker, Ben Evans and Matt Davis – three of which were converted by Jarrod Sammut.
Both teams finished the game with 12 men after Sammut and Toronto forward Richard Whiting were sin-binned.
