Official Match Report

A fantastic kicking display from Jarrod Sammut was the difference as London Broncos held on to beat Salford Red Devils 11-8 at Trailfinders Sports Ground, keeping their promotion hopes alive.

The victory means the Broncos still have a chance of making the Million Pound Game with one round of Super 8s Qualifiers against Halifax RLFC left to play.

Sammut opened the scoring for London in the 11th minute, converting a penalty from 10 metres after Robert Lui had held Alex Walker too long in the tackle.

Three minutes later the Broncos scored the first try of the game, with Jay Pitts managing to ground the ball despite being held by three Salford players. Malta international Sammut added the conversion to put the Broncos 8-0 ahead.

The Broncos were temporarily reduced to 12 players in the 25th minute when Eddie Battye was shown a yellow card for ripping the ball out of a two-man tackle.

Salford were unable to capitalise on the extra man and Sammut thought he had scored the Broncos’ second try only to be pulled back for offside.

The Broncos did manage to extend their lead while down to 12, with Sammut knocking over a drop goal from 20 metres five minutes from half-time.

The Red Devils finally got themselves on the scoresheet in the 56th minute, with Greg Johnson going over in the corner after the ball had been quickly shipped out to the wing.

Sammut converted his second penalty of the game in the 75th minute.

Salford used their set of six straight from the kick-off to score their second try of the match with Johnson again going over in the corner, but London held on.

Broncos head coach Danny Ward said: "I’m drained by the game, so I can’t imagine how the boys are feeling!

“It was good to watch to see how well the boys were playing and they were fantastic, their attitude and work-rate was excellent."
