Danny McGuire scored four tries as Leeds continued their Stobart Super League recovery with a 58-12 thrashing of London Broncos at the Stoop.

The Rhinos ran in a total of 10 tries, six coming in the final 20 minutes, as the Broncos fell way short in their bid to record back-to-back home wins.

Leeds have now secured three straight wins to recover from their poor run of form in May and the early part of June, strengthening their push for a play-off place in the process.

The defending Super League champions came under early pressure, however, when Michael Witt engineered a gap for Dan Sarginson only for the full-back to be hauled down just short of the line.

Leeds had a try chalked off for an obvious forward pass but it was the Broncos who were having the bulk of the play, Scott Wheeldon coming close to giving the hosts the lead only to spill a pass near the Rhinos line.

A surging run Julien Rinaldi then took the hosts deep into Leeds territory and Chris Bailey rounded the move off by storming over at the sticks in the 22nd minute.

The Rhinos were stung into action and responded with a try of their own moments later as Shaun Lunt crashed over from close range to level things up.


Lunt then pushed Leeds into the lead in the 31st minute, barrelling over under the posts after bursting through some increasingly tired Broncos tackling.

By the half-time break the Rhinos stretched well clear, McGuire strolling over for a brace of tries on 37 and 39 minutes.

After the break the hosts took advantage of a wayward pass from Zak Hardaker, with Kieran Dixon having the simplest of tasks of picking up possession and cantering over.

London remained two scores behind, although they almost reduced the deficit in the 54th minute when David Howell was unable to hold what would have been a try-scoring pass from Witt.

Having absorbed the best the home side could throw at them, Carl Ablett ran on the last tackle and stretched clear to tee up McGuire for his hat-trick on the hour mark.

That seemed to knock the fight out of the Broncos and moments later Ablett touched down for a try of his own, which was followed by McGuire's fourth.

Further late scores were to follow from Hardaker, Rob Burrow and Kylie Leuluai as the Broncos were powerless to stop the away side in the closing stages.
