In the lowest scoring game of the round, Andrew Henderson’s London Broncos beat Championship newbies Oldham 22-0.
The full-time side were only four points up at the break after a try from Andy Ackers on 15 minutes. Both sides then cancelled each other out as no points were scored until the opening stages of the second half. Jack Bussey, another new signing made by the Broncos, extended London’s advantage but Wes Naiqama couldn’t convert. Two tries in less than ten minutes put the game beyond Oldham’s reach. The first came from Iliess Macani and the second was courtesy of Ben Hellewell who made the most of a Joe Keyes kick.
London host Swinton at the Trailfinders Sports Ground in round two while Oldham take on a Leigh Centurions side who will be wanting to bounce back from their opening round loss to Batley.
