London fall to Hull

Hull FC 35-22 London Broncos

Hull FC put in a Jekyll and Hyde performance but 34 points in the first-half was enough for them to gain two points at the KCOM Stadium. 

London Broncos dominated the second-half scoring 22 points, with Marc Sneyd scoring FC's only point of the half. 

Carlos Tuimavave opened the scoring for Hull FC, when he pounced on a London error as Kieran Dixon and Rhys Williams collided under the high ball. 

Bureta Faraimo, Joe Westerman and Jake Connor added to Hull FC's score, before a powerful run from Faraimo set Josh Griffin up for his try. 

Ratu Naulago showed off his speed again, as he ran the length off the pitch before the end of the half to give Hull FC a 34-0 lead going into the break. 

Matty Fleming opened the scoring early in the second-half for London's first try of the game, which kickstarted a Broncos revival. 

Jordan Abdull scored against his old club FC, before Sadiq Adebiyi scored a brace but it was too little too late for Danny Ward's men, Marc Sneyd kicked FC's only point of the half, a drop goal in front of the posts. 

London still remain at the bottom of the table, with relegation rivals Leeds and Hull KR going head to head on Friday night.
