London Broncos coach Tony Rea was pleased to see his side's character shining through at the end of another tough Super League season.

A 34-22 win over Hull KR meant the Broncos ended the season with back-to-back wins and avoided the wooden spoon following their victory at Bradford last week.

And with so much uncertainty surrounding the club's future, Rea was delighted his players had given their fans something to cheer about going into a winter of uncertainty.

Asked if he felt London would be in Super League next year Rea emphatically replied: "Yes.

"Everyone is fighting for that and stars have to align for that to happen. If they do, we'll be there in Super League.

"The players know who is leaving. There are players that can come in but the first priority is to get the base right.

"It's still ongoing. As long as it gets done and done the right way that's the main thing.

"Some tough decisions have to be made and its important to have a good London side."

If the Broncos stay in Super League, they have a number of bright young talents coming through and none more so than hat-trick hero Caton-Brown, who took all three of his tries with aplomb.

Rea was proud of Caton-Brown and all of his players after overseeing a brilliant end to the season.

Togetherness

"I'm extremely proud of my players," Rea said. "This was about togetherness as a team and you could see what it meant to them.

"Mason is athletic and he is scoring tries. He has to believe in himself more.

"He's a quiet young man and he needs to feel he can dominate. The academy players have been doing that all year for us.

"They've had to with the number of senior blokes on the sidelines but the senior players did well for us as well."

Robins coach Craig Sandercock admitted his side had let a win slip away after they had built a 16-0 lead after 23 minutes.

"It was a bit of an up and down game," Sandercock said. "At 16-0, we were in total control.

"But we lost our way when Evarn Tuimavave and Jason Netherton went off. Our completion rate went out the window.

"To London's credit they got back in the game and deserved to win."
