Bradford Bulls 10 London Broncos 20
Jamie Soward provided the inspiration as bottom side London Broncos produced a shock victory at the Provident Stadium this afternoon.
The Australian half-back, who was sinbinned late on, was at the heart of a vibrant display from Tony Rea’s side, who outscored the Bulls by four tries to two.
Centre David Howell took a pass from James Woodburn-Hall to cross the line from close range in the 36th minute.
The Bulls replied through Keith Lulia seven minutes after the restart but London hit back with three more tries to keep alive their hopes of avoiding the wooden spoon.
Howell touched down Soward’s kick for his second try and then Soward intercepted a pass to scamper clear from halfway.
Kieran Dixon, who was dangerous throughout for the Broncos, then sent debutant Mason Caton-Brown over in the left corner for a fourth try.
Jarrod Sammut’s pass enabled Danny Addy to cross the line with nine minutes remaining before Soward was sinbinned for apparent dissent.
Man of the match given as Danny Addy... fair call.
Danny Addy has scored a second Bulls try with seven minutes remaining but is it too little too late?
Soward missed the conversion but at 20-6 it looks like game over...
67 mins... Mason Caton-Brown has gone over for a fourth London try in the left corner from Kieran Dixon's pass... 20-6 with kick to come...
61 mins... Jamie Soward has added a third try for London after intercepting Luke Gale's pass on halfway...
58 mins... London back in front as Soward's kick is caught with ease by Howell... Soward adds the extras to make it 10-6...
Jamie Foster converts to make it 6-4 to the Bulls...
45 mins... Keith Lulia over in the left corner...
Second-half underway.... 4-0 to London...
HT: 4-0 to London. Not good from a Bulls perspective. Things can only get better.
Soward missed the conversion so it's 4-0 to London and we're nearly at half-time...
35 mins... David Howell puts London ahead after taking a short pass to cross from close range...
Fairly uninspiring stuff at Odsal... still scoreless and precious few try-scoring opportunities...
19 mins... Olbison on for Langley.... still 0-0...
Still scoreless after a balanced opening.... London giving as good as they are getting...
03... Bulls forced to drop out again...
Bulls forced to drop out after good pressure from London...

We are underway here at the Provident Stadium...
Nick Scruton makes his 100th appearance for Bradford.... Scruton made his Bulls debut in a 13-13 draw with Hull Kingston Rovers at Odsal on 15 February, 2009....
Bulls players out to warm up. Half an hour to kick off. http://t.co/rRZL4idrEB— @rosshtanda 01 September 2013
Today's referee is Mr Robert Hicks (Oldham)...

Interchange: Walker, Olbison, O'Brien, Evans..
Foster; Kear, Platt, Lulia, Wood; Sammut, Gale; Scruton, Diskin, Manuokafoa, Addy, Langley, Donaldson...
Brett Kearney misses out today so Jamie Foster lines up at full back...

RT @ianramsdale: A London Broncos win at Bradford tomorrow is their only way of possibly avoiding #SuperLeague wooden spoon for first time …— @rosshtanda 01 September 2013
The 20-year-old full-back has been playing in Championship One this year on a dual registration for Hemel Stags...
London, who must win to stand any chance of not finishing bottom, are set to give a debut to Mason Caton-Brown...
Sam Wood looks certain to line up on the wing today with the Bulls missing a number of players through injury... Alex Mellor possibly for a bench spot too...
Looking forward to the game today @BradfordBullsRL #Belong— @roygoldstien 01 September 2013
