London Broncos return to The Hive for the first time in over a month when they take on the Widnes Vikings on Saturday – but are are still searching for that elusive first win.
They will be encouraged by another battling performance against Huddersfield Giants last Saturday. Trailing 22-0 at one point they fought hard after the interval before eventually losing 38-22.
A repeat of that second half performance from the off against a Widnes side who are without a win in their last five games could pave the way for that crucial victory.
Broncos have tended to play well in patches this season and we have yet to see them turn in a full-on 80 minute performance.
They’ve also got to start taking all the scoring chances that come their way.
Bombed three try scoring opportunities at Huddersfield early in the first half and head coach Joe Grima admitted that had they taken them, it could have changed the outcome.
“We had three breaks in the first 11 minutes of the first half before we scored a try, so who knows if we had scored those tries early?” he said.
“We don’t have the ability to play for 80 minutes and it’s something that we’re going to struggle with until we do.”
But the team remain positive with Grima adding: “We’ve still got 10 games to go and I can tell you there’s some players that they feel they can win all 10.”
But if they are to start winning they will have to do it without top scorer Mason Caton-Brown. The 21-year-old centre from Enfield has joined the Salford Red Devils.
