London Broncos find themselves propping up the rest in the Stobart Super League after going down 24-6 away at Wakefield on Sunday.

The capital club suffered a seventh consecutive defeat and with fellow strugglers Widnes shocking Huddersfield, now sit bottom of the table.

Wakefield atoned for a 36-0 defeat against the same opponents back in March and were 22-0 up before having their line breached for the only time in the game just after the hour.

The Londoners made life difficult for themselves by conceding five penalties inside the first 15 minutes, though Scott Wheeldon's score at least meant they weren't shut out.

Platform

Forward duo Kyle Amor and Ali Lauitiiti set the platform for a first-half of complete dominance by the Wildcats, with the latter touching down for a try.

Former Leeds Rhino Lauitiiti put centre left Vince Mellars through a gap in the visitors' defence for the opening try on five minutes and romped over himself on 28 minutes, leaving a trail of London defenders in his wake.

Right centre Dean Collis also touched down, finishing off a flowing move, and former London stand-off Paul Sykes kicked three goals to put the Wildcats into an 18-0 half-time lead.

The Broncos' cause was not helped by the loss of stand-off Michael Witt went off with a shoulder injury after being trampled on by the unstoppable Lauitiiti.

Robertson binned

They were then reduced to 12 men on 50 minutes when winger Michael Robertson was sin-binned by referee Tim Roby for delaying a Wakefield re-start.

The hosts immediately took advantage, with loose forward Danny Washbrook getting second rower Danny Kirmond over for a fourth try.

An evening up of the penalty count enabled London to keep the score in check, without threatening to come back into a disappointing game played out in constant drizzle.

Prop Wheeldon took hooker Chad Randall's pass to cross for a consolation effort, to which Shane Rodney added the goal. However, Wakefield refused to let their opponents have the last word, Sykes' second penalty rounding out the scoring.
