4th July 1997: London 38 Wigan 12

London Broncos v Wigan Warriors - 1997 Super League Round 16.
Friday 4th July 1997. Kick Off 7:30pm at The Stoop.

Match Report

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 defensive effort.
