London coach Tony Rea lavished praise on Craig Gower after the Australian half-back helped to guide the Broncos to a sensational victory over Salford.

Gower scored a try, created three others, kicked four goals and pulled the strings as the Londoners overcame a 28-6 interval deficit in stunning style.

"I thought Craig was outstanding today," Rea said afterwards. "We needed players to step up at half time and when I saw the glint in his eye I knew we had a chance.

"It has been a really tough year for the club and people are down about it, so I am really pleased for the players that we came back like that.

"The ambition that everyone showed was great and it is very important that we keep that going for every minute left this season."

Veivers furious

Salford coach Phil Veivers, who saw his side slip up in the race for the play-off spots cut a dejected figure after the contest.

Veivers pulled few punches when asked to evaluate his side's second-half collapse.

"Some of the performances out there were disgusting," he stormed. "There are some players today that need to take a long hard look at themselves.

"At 28-6 at half-time you certainly expect to win a game, but ill-discipline let us down big time.

"I think there is a lot of soul-searching that needs to be done, and we will look at the video and go from there.

"We did not just lose the game, we lost it convincingly, and that is hard to take."
