Sheffield stunned by Broncos comeback


Sheffield Eagles looked set for a convincing victory against London Broncos in Ebbsfleet.

That was until the tables turned and a 0-28 half-time lead turned into a 36-28 defeat.

The first half saw a hat-trick for Ben Jones-Bishop, a brace for Kris Welham and one try for Quentin Laulu-Togaga’e.

The Eagles were performing with confidence as their expansive play caused issues for the hosts.

However, the second half was a completely different story as the Broncos capitalised on a slow start from Sheffield.

Mike Eccles’ side grew into the contest and scored six converted tries without a reply to seal a massive victory in their fight against relegation.
