Powell seeks home comforts

Rob Powell: delighted with shut-out win

We know we have the talent here, but that talent counts for nothing if you do not have the right attitude.

Rob Powell wants his London Broncos to make the Twickenham Stoop a real fortress after their 36-0 thrashing of Wakefield.

The capital club rain in seven tries without reply to record thier first shut-out success in Super League in four years and just their second of the season.

Michael Robertson crossed twice as the Wildcats were soundly beaten in London, with Powell wanting more of the same from his troops when they entertain Catalan Dragons on Thursday evening.

"We have played well in every home game this season and it was another strong performance today," he said.

"We have to make this place very difficult for other teams to come to and I think we are.

"The key for us will be to keep this home form going and then try and produce on the road."

Attitude

While seeing his team score more than 30 points for the fifth time in 2012 was pleasing, Powell was even more impressed at the way his Broncos kept their opponents off the scoresheet.

He added: "I think it was a case of attitude.

"It was pleasing to see that after 65 or 70 minutes we were still working hard to keep them out.

"We know we have the talent here, but that talent counts for nothing if you do not have the right attitude."

The defeat for Wakefield continued their miserable run of form in London - they have now won there just twice in their last eight visits.

Head coach Richard Agar admitted that too many of his players were "off colour" on Saturday evening, meaning they were unable to back up their impressive victory over the Dragons last time out.

"By a long way that was our worst performance of the season," he said.

"We know as a team that if we have too many players off colour then it does not happen for us, and we had a lot off colour today.

"We lacked any punch and London were able to roll us down the pitch too easily.

"I thought we looked really soft in the second half.

"We have to aim a lot higher than that, and we will need to rediscover our form very quickly."
