London Broncos finally won a home Super League game yesterday, albeit 170 miles from their Brentford base. Their 40-18 win over Widnes took place on the road at Aberavon and they made themselves at home with six tries in the first 23 minutes to help establish a 34-6 lead at half-time.

The London coach Tony Rea admitted the quick start was planned. "We worked hard to get ourselves on a roll in the first half and we kept it up," he said.

Dennis Moran scored two tries to make it eight in his last three games as London jumped to sixth in the table, one place above champions St Helens.

Warrington missed out on their chance to overtake the struggling Saints with a 32-12 defeat at Wakefield. Tries early in the second half by David March and Adrian Vowles laid the platform for the Wildcats to run away with the game in the final quarter.

On Saturday, Leeds ensured they stayed top with a 39-26 win at Headingley over Castleford, but they had to come back from an early 10-0 deficit.
