Broncos v Wigan Warriors- 1997 Super League Round 16.
Friday 4th July
1997. Kick Off 7:30pm at The Stoop.
London put on an amazing performance at
the Stoop tonight, showing that they had learned several lessons from
their recent Australian trip. They tore apart a Wigan team, that did not
play badly, but who were completely out-classed.
A penalty goal gave Wigan the early lead and the first try of the game
came in the 15th minute, when Josh White intercepted a wayward Tony Smith
pass on the halfway line, to dart under the posts. The Boncos extended
their lead ten minutes later, when Steve Rosolen out-jumped Gary Connolly,
to collect a White high kick and he sent Martin Offiah in at the corner. A
Tony Smith try and two goals from Andy Farrell, kept Wigan in touch at the
halftime break, with a 12-10 scoreline.
Another Andy Farrell penalty, four minutes into the second half, levelled
up the scoreboard, but London were well in control on the field. The
Broncos' defence was dominating the game and as it moved into the final
quarter, the mistakes started to come from Wigan. Four more tries to
London, just emphasised their domination. The best try of the game came
after after a Tulsen Tollett break in his own half and a subsequent
passing movement involving six players, that had Shaun Edwards scoring
against his old club
London's rock-solid defence won them this game and
all of their players had fine games. The star was loose forward Peter
Gill, who had a hand in most of the Broncos' tries, as well as a staunch
Greg Barwick (6)
Andy Farrell (4)
