London Broncos 10-36 Leeds Rhinos: Jack Walker's Double💪 Helps All but Seal Safety

  |   Rugby

Leeds Rhinos all but secured their Betfred Super League status and plunged London Broncos further into trouble with a 36-10 victory in the capital.

With Hull Kingston Rovers' victory away to Catalans Dragons on Saturday, the pressure was always going to be on the Broncos as they began the day two points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table.

The first try of the game came as a result of a mistake, Elliot Kear losing the ball forward in the tackle, leaving Luke Briscoe with the simple task of scooping up and racing untouched to the try-line to finish under the posts. Rhyse Martin added the conversion to give the visitors an early 6-0 lead.

The home side, though, were not to be deterred and spent the next five minutes or so camped deep in Rhinos territory. Their best chance came through Kieran Dixon jinking his way inside from his wing, however a knock-on brought the attack to a halt.

But the Rhinos went straight down the other end and were much more clinical than the hosts as Ava Seumanufagai burst over from a metre out, with Martin again adding the extras to stretch the lead to 12-0.
