Super League Sunday: Broncos stun Saints, Warriors leave it late

Hull KR 18-19 Wigan Warriors

Wigan took the lead after 11 minutes through George Williams, which was converted by Zak Hardaker. But their lead didn’t last long as Jimmy Keinhorst scored just seven minutes later.

The Warriors were in control at half time however as Dan Sarginson and Joe Burgess crossed over. Both tries were unconverted however, meaning it was 14-6 at the break.

Hull KR then took the lead just before the hour as Will Dagger and Ryan Lannon scored. Both were converted by Ryan Shaw to put the Rovers 18-14 ahead.

The visitors then levelled as Liam Marshall got in out wide. They then won the game as Sam Powell hit a 40m drop goal with two minutes to go.

London Broncos 23-22 St Helens

The league leaders were in control early on as tries from James Roby and Luke Thompson, both of which converted by Danny Richardson, meant Saints were 12-0 up after just 10 minutes.

But the Broncos hit back before the break as Ryan Morgan scored against his parent club and then James Cunningham also scored. Both tries were converted by Kieran Dixon meaning it was 12-12 at the break.

Mark Percival had put Saints back in front after the break, but soon it was London who hit the front as Morgan grabbed his second try and then Jay Pitts scored to put the capital side 22-16 up with 10 minutes to go.

But the league leaders showed their credentials as Regan Grace got in out wide in the last minute. Richardson converted again to take it to Golden Point.

Two minutes into Golden Point Extra Time, Morgan Smith hit a drop goal to earn London their first win over St Helens since 2013.
