London claims second win and Widnes suffers late heartbreak


London Broncos took their second win of the Championship season with a 26-18 win over Dewsbury Rams.

The Broncos leapt above their opponents to sit 12th in the Championship standings and outside the relegation zone for the first time this season. Dewsbury without a coach is now among them, having scored just four points so far this season.

In the meantime, Widths suffered a late defeat at home York† Matty Marsh scored in the 74th minute to give the Traveling Knights a 16-14 win, with Jamie Ellis kicking the winning conversion.

The Vikings led 14-4 at halftime in Danny Craven’s 200th appearance. However, second half attempts by Joe Brown and Marsh saw them return to Yorkshire with the two points. Winger Brown also made a cross in the first half.
