I'm proud of the broncos here, great effort from a hugely under strength and inexperienced team.

30 18 to Leeds on a sweltering night darn Sarf. Take a bow Luke Dorn, a great servant to the game and the club. Sutcliffe murdered a chance in the last minute.

And a good crowd for a Thursday night game at a ground with poor travel connections and live on sky. Particularly as most thought it might be another cricket score.

These London fans don't seem to pick and choose their games (unlike Wigan)!

Good stuff from London, they have in them a pretty decent team and some top drawer players

They desperately need a coach to match I think

Leeds got a LOT of calls go their way

Would that be Wigan who took the greatest number of fans to last week end's semi?

Given it was basically a home game I'd hope so too

None whatsoever

Just like half the league fwiw.

I totally agree. Really hot there and a nice night for a cold beer. I am looking forward to a more successful season in the league next season.

Don't underestimate the heats influence on that game tonight.

It was 34c before the game, 32 at kick off and 28 at full time. It got muggier and muggier as the night went on too. As soon as the sun went down I felt tired watching.

Wasn't the best game ever but Leeds always had London at arms length and had Soward not being playing would really have had a look in at all IMO.

It's the warmest game I can remember being at in a good 7 or 8 years anyway (Hudds v Leeds at the McAlpine, can't remember the year and it felt a bit worse but that was a day game). I have no problem with the lack of intensity. It was an effort to chant, never mind throw yourselves into a collision! :lol:

Given it was a home game - smiley face - just saying - not throwing stones...

I think London showed that they are not a hopeless side, while Leeds did what they had to do.

That pretty much sums it up for me.

London wound me up, actually. If they can play like that against Leeds in front of the TV cameras, why have they been serving up such sh*t every week for the rest of the season? The likes of Howell, Randall, Kaufusi, Rodney, Witt, and Robertson have been stealing a living for the past few years. 

 

That said, Krasniqi worked his knackers off. I don't think he's big enough to ever be a really dominant prop, but I would really like to see him given a  run at 13, playing in that Paul Gallen mould. The other locals did their bit too. It's easy to forget just how young some of the Londoners are - Krasniqi is 21, Sarginson 20, McMeeken 19, Woodburn-Hall 18 - because they seem to have been playing for a long time. Sign of a badly run club, for my money, that youngsters are dumped into the first team before they are ready and expected to play like seasoned-veterans. Made worse by having the aforementioned imports supposedly leading the way. There must be one hell of an imbalance in the hard work to earning power ratio at the club.

 

Just by way of comparison, Sam Tomkins was 19 when he debuted for Wigan, and 20 when he got a regular spot in the team. London-raised players have always been later developers purely because they are not immersed in the sport the same way lads in WIgan, etc are. They've been asked to do things the past few years that they simply aren't ready for whilst huge sums of money have been wasted on 'name' imports.

Apparently Heathrow recorded the highest temperature any where in the UK for 10 years yesterday - I got the impression that in the last few minutes the two teams were so shattered that they were just going through the motions!
