More Super League pain for London Broncos after 58-4 loss to Warrington Wolves

London Broncos’ brutal start to the Super League season continued on Sunday after a 58-4 defeat at Plough Lane to Warrington Wolves.

The South London-based side are rock bottom of the top flight having lost all five of their outings since winning promotion last season.

Hakim Miloudi scored the only try for Broncos but James Thewlis and Matt Dufty scored hat-tricks for the visitors as they moved to the top of the table.

Castleford Tigers are also winless but Broncos are bottom due to their minus-166 points difference.

“Size and physicality is what we have struggled with in all the games,” said Broncos lead coach Mike Eccles.

“The back five decision-making was really poor .

“It’s probably the worst performance we have had, but at the same time, we caused them problems with the ball.

“They were really good. They came down with a game plan of understanding that last week we were in a game with Wigan after 55 minutes and they knew that we would challenge them if they weren’t on it.

“Their mentality was really good. We didn’t catch them off guard, which would have been nice.

“They were very good and did a good number on our back five in transition – they aimed to strangle us and go forward.”

The Broncos have to play Warrington again on Saturday at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in the Challenge Cup.

“We won’t disrespect the cup, but we will focus on the league,” added Eccles.

“Next week will be a review period of the first five weeks of the season.

“We have had a good look at the team now. You have an idea of where you’re going to be deficient, but now it’s a reality.

“We will review the guys we have brought in on loan, the current squad and what’s available.

“It’s a nice period to draw a line in the sand and fully reflect on it.”
