LONDON SHOCK SAINTS

Post by josie andrews » Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:11 pm

Morgan Smith’s golden-point drop-goal saw London Broncos claim a shock 23-22 comeback victory over Betfred Super League leaders St Helens in a pulsating game in the capital.

Saints looked to be on course for a 16th win of the campaign after taking control with two early tries from James Roby and Luke Thompson.

The rock-bottom Broncos hit back to level things up at 12-12 by the break with scores from Ryan Morgan and James Cunningham but St Helens moved back in front again when Mark Percival crossed in the 50th minute.

The Broncos roared back once more, though, and tries from Morgan and Jay Pitts saw them take the lead for the first time, and they remained in front until the 79th minute.

That was when Danny Richardson’s superb touchline conversion following Regan Grace’s last-gasp try made it 22-22, but London were not to be denied a famous win as Smith sealed victory in the most dramatic of fashions.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
