Hull pressing now, 6 tackles on their line.

Tickle drops it on the 2nd.

Best of luck.

I'd rather I'd lost it.

and there were transport issues meaning the hardcore of 1800 will have struggled to get there - a bad day all round for Lobby
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Looks like London may just be getting their act together, although they won't be happy that they let a two score lead go. Still, better to draw at home than be tonked as previously.

You'd expect a 12 point lead to be enough in a mudbath. I certainly did.

So did I, if it had been against a decent team god knows what the outcome would have been.

Thing is though London haven't won at home in how long? They will no doubt have had a period in the match when that will have come back to haunt them. While a win would have been ideal for them, a draw will at least give them and their remaining handful of longsuffering fans a bit of something to hold on to for next time. That's my theory anyway!

First one back from the game, and the result is a matter of perspective.
Before the game the wintry conditions were reminiscent of the Challenge Cup game at Mount Pleasant last year though curiously once the game had started the snowfall stopped. Looking at the Hull side in the warm up I thought they looked a lot bigger than the Broncos and this would play into Hull's hands and in the last 20 minutes of the game it did as the Broncos were worn down.
I have to disagree with Hull fans after the game who were saying that conditions were a great leveller for the Broncos because conditions suited Hull IMO and during the game there were enough holes opening in the Hull defence to lead me to believe that Dixon, Sarginson and Dorn would have caused some damage.in drier conditions.
No Craig Gower but I suspect that was a tactical move by Tony Rea.which worked for 60 minutes.
A disappointing outcome after being 18-6 up but a vastly improved London performance against what is a Big club. There was no lack of passion or commitment out there today and really that's all fans have been asking for. Thanks to having a proper coach the club is improving on the field even if it remains a train wreck off it.
NB - The Broncos played in Black shirts and socks but light blue (away) shorts having last week played in light blue shirts and socks and Black (home) shorts which leads me to conclude either
a) We are changing our Kit combination or
B) Due to cost cutting measures at the club the players only have the one pair of shorts and the ones used at Castleford are still in the wash.

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Enjoyed the game, sloppy play in the last 10 minutes cost London the second point, but before that they were looking solid and seemd the only team capable of breaking through the line. Dixon's try was superb, he used pace and trickery to find the opening and then surprisingly used strength to break free from the covering tackle.

Tend to agree largely with Red Rooster. What a difference and lift it gives whats left of us to see the
obvious commitment and enthusisasm displayed throughout the team saturday.
Yes we perhaps should have held on whilst 12 points ahead but I would have taken that result without a
doubt a few weeks back. What with the performance at Castleford fingers crossed they can continue with
this vein of form at least until the ineveitable injuries start to mount.
Travel was a mare though having been thrown off the train at Barnes when on a train bound for Hounslow.
Was sorted for the return journey though as through trains to Reading were running through Hounslow even
if those due to terminate at Hounslow werent.
Five and a quarter hour round trip,but it was worth it.
