London Broncos go into their game against Hull FC on Saturday at the Hive desperately trying to avoid a Super League record, writes Dave Lawrenson.
The Broncos have lost their first 14 Super League games and if they go down on Saturday will equal the the worst start to a season in the competition's history.
In 2001 Huddersfield Giants lost their first 15 games and although they went on to win six and draw one of their last 13 matches they were still relegated.
Broncos have shown encouraging signs in their last three games but still haven’t managed to come up with that all-important win.
At Hull Kingston Rovers on Sunday after trailing 22-4 at half-time they staged a fight back which saw them reduce the deficit to just six points before a string of errors condemned them to a 48-16 defeat.
Broncos head coach Joe Grima said: "We got ourselves back in the game in the first 10 minutes of that second half but just kept going back to silly mistakes. We probably beat ourselves a little bit.”
Their opponents on Saturday won’t exactly be full of confidence themselves.
Hull FC lie tenth in the table and have lost their last four games, in fact their last victory was over the Broncos on Easter Monday.
No one doubts the commitment and effort of the Broncos players, they just need to start well, keep the pressure on, cut out the errors and maybe get a slice of luck.
