Some good starting defence from London gave the team some confidence to build on, until Hull’s Jordan Lane found his way over the line to score the first points of the game.
Minutes later, more good play from Hull saw them go 50 metres for their Jack Sanderson to score, but a missed kick put the scores at 10-0.
Once again, additional good play from Hull saw them break down their left edge, but good scramble defence from London put a stop to any potential scoring. It also resulted in Touyo Egodo’s sin binning, much to London’s disagreement.
Hull capitalised on London having 12 men, and scored three tries whilst Egodo was in the bin, with tries from Will Jubb, Zeus Silk and Mike Adlard to put the score at 28-0. The Broncos regathered some momentum and tried to keep Hull out until half time, but Hull’s Liam Harris went over the white wash with 10 minutes left to play.
Just moments later Hull’s Sanderson went over once more and saw the game into half time with the score at 38-0.
The second half began and Broncos really needed an energy boost – which they seemed to have acquired during the half time break – as they went 100 metres to score through Jordan Williams in their first set.
Hull’s Bobby Downs hit back straight after, putting the score at 44-4. 10 minutes later, they were again the next on the score sheet, this time through their Jez Litten.
London kept playing to their strengths to try and get on the score sheet again, and eventually they did. Kam Pearce-Paul crossed, shortening the gap to 50- 8.
Shortly after, Jordan Williams went over for his second try of the game, but Hull scored right on the 80th minute, leaving London bitterly disappointed with their first half performance.
The U19s next game is against Catalan Dragons on Sunday 1 May at Ealing Trailfinders.
