Leeds Rhinos 16 London Broncos 18

Matt Parcell

A last minute try from Will Lovell saw London Broncos secure a historic win at Emerald Headingley after the Rhinos has led 18-6 with less than five minutes to play.

Leeds Rhinos returned to Emerald Headingley low on confidence after two tough defeats at the hands of Wakefield and Hull FC and desperate to hand London Broncos their biggest scalp on their return to the top flight.

The Rhinos enjoyed the better of the early exchanges with Trent Merrin and Brett Ferres combining to set up a position for Konrad Hurrell to attack the line but the centre could not get his offload back inside to Ash Handley near the line.

Nate Peteru then went close for the home side as he bust through a tackle and then galloped 15 metres up field before he was finally stopped by a desperate ankle tackle. Leeds though could not make the most of the subsequent penalty and London began to grow into the game after that.

Twice Danny Ward’s side nearly went over from dummy half only for the Rhinos to deny them on the line and then Myler had to come up with a try saver on Luke Yates as he got his body under the ball as the forward looked certain to score.

London did open the scoring with a penalty from Kieran Dixon after 27 minutes and then scored the games opening try four minutes later. A cross field kick was allowed to bounce and looked to be heading out of play until quick thinking from the visitors saw it batted back into the in goal and Jay Pitts was on hand to score against his former club. Dixon added the conversion to give his side an 8-0 lead which they held until half time.

The Rhinos unsurprisingly came out fired up after half time but lost Adam Cuthbertson to a leg injury in the first set of the half. However, the home side soon crossed for their opening try when Richie Myler bravely ran at the defence and drove for the line before stretching out to score. Tui Lolohea added the conversion to cut the Broncos lead to 8-6 after 44 minutes.

Leeds thought they had gone in front after 51 minutes when Jack Walker raced through to touch down but referee Chris Kendall pulled play back for an obstruction.

However, it was just a temporary delay for the home side as Trent Merrin crossed for his first try for the club. The score was created by Tom Briscoe who caught a cross field kick before getting the ball back in field. Merrin still had plenty to do but he stepped back inside the defence before powering for the line. Lolohea added the conversion to make it 12-8 just before the hour mark.

The Rhinos had their tails up now and Briscoe then marked his 300thcareer appearance  as he showed great strength in the corner to hold off two would be tacklers to get over. Lolohea narrowly missed the touchline conversion but his side looked in control at 16-8 in front.

However, London knew a try could put the Rhinos back on edge and they crossed after 76 minutes through Fozard, when he chased his own kick near the line to touch it down. Dixon missed the conversion attempt but the game was back in the balance.

Leeds needed to hold out but when Elliot Kear broke clear they were on the back foot and the cross field kick was knocked down into the path of Will Lovell who picked up and spun round to put the ball down to level the game. With less than 90 seconds remaining in the game, Dixon kicked the conversion to give his side an 18-16 lead.

The Rhinos desperately tried to get a late winner but to no avail and they slumped to six defeats from the opening seven games of the season.
