Tony Rea was a relieved man after London Broncos secured their first Super League victory in more than four months.

His side are bottom of the Super League table and without a home venue for next season but, on Sunday, beat Bradford 20-10 to end a long losing streak that dates back to April 27.

Following the match at Odsal, the Broncos coach said: "It was important, it was gutsy and we've stuck together as a group for a long time and it got us rewards today.

"It certainly helps our cause. It lifts everyone at the club and keeps everyone enthused about what we are doing."

The victory keeps alive London's hopes of avoiding the wooden spoon, having closed the gap on Salford to a single point.

Meanwhile, Bradford coach Francis Cummins added: "It was a very disappointing loss.

"We looked like we had a few players give up - which they didn't - but a lot of the time we defended big sets, only to throw the ball back to them.

"We defended well but you can't make 18 errors, we're talking about 40 per cent completion. We let ourselves down today."

The Bulls have now lost eight of their last 10 games and were playing mainly for pride.

Cummins went on: "There was no pressure on us. We were looking to play well for ourselves but they (London) had all the ball.

"It is a very simple game but you can't play it if you don't have the ball and when we did have it we threw it away through too many errors."
