Official Report / Commentary

Rhys Williams scored a pair of tries as London Broncos made it back-to-back wins after a 30-12 Betfred Super League win over Catalans Dragons at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

The Broncos recorded consecutive victories for the first time this season as they added to their narrow win over St Helens last week and although they remain at the foot of the table, they move level on points with Leeds Rhinos and Hull KR.

London went ahead when Jordan Abdull collected a kick through from Morgan Smith with Kieran Dixon adding the extras but Catalans hit back through Fouad Yaha.


Williams went in for his first try before Yaha had his second of the afternoon with London going into the break 12-8 up.

Elliott Kear then picked up Abdull's kick to go in and Dixon and Williams crossed to extend the visitors' advantage.

Yaha completed his hat-trick four minutes from time but it was mere consolation.

London Broncos coach Danny Ward said: "The boys worked pretty hard for each other, they’ve got a good bond and they had that must win mentality today and they went out there and just worked their socks off for each other. We’re not the flashest team on paper and we might not be spending as much as other teams but we’ve got a good attitude and they’re working hard."

Catalans Dragons coach Steve McNamara said: "I thought the first couple of sets we were OK, but once we made our first error with the ball, we just disintegrated. I think we were at fifty percent completion in the first half and hardly any better in the second half. It was unexplainable really as to how we could put that performance in."
