Round-up

After scoring 34 points against St Helens on Wednesday and still managing to lose, London Broncos made no such mistake at Castleford, scrum-half Leo Dynevor scoring a hat-trick of tries as they strolled to a 37-8 success.

Castleford were never in the hunt as the seven-try Broncos handed out a lesson in handling and support play.

London set the early pace and deservedly took the lead after 12 minutes when Ben Walker, the stand-off, evaded several tacklers on a jinking run to send Craig Green over for an unconverted score. London then swept 85 metres in a thrilling four-man move that ended with the second-rower Russell Bowden giving Dynevor a sprint to the line.

The scrum-half goaled his own try and stretched Broncos' lead six minutes later when he regathered his own chip over Castleford's disorganised defence to touch down.

Castleford came out fired up for the second-half but Dynevor grabbed his hat-trick try on 57 minutes after his deflected chip over the top rebounded kindly.

At the foot of the table, Sheffield claimed only their second win of the season, beating Oldham 36-18. Sheffield produced a tremendous second- half performance to brush aside Oldham, who had led from the third minute.

Sheffield's win consigned Workington to the bottom of the table despite the Cumbrian team's battling show at home to Bradford Bulls.

In a hard-fought contest the Bulls weathered some intense Workington pressure in the second half before securing a 22-12 victory five minutes from time when Gary Christie took advantage of some slack tackling to score the crucial try which Deryck Fox converted.
