Featherstone snatch late draw

Featherstone snatch late draw

London Broncos 32-32 Featherstone Rovers

Featherstone Rovers produced a brilliant comeback to secure a 32-32 draw against London Broncos in their Super 8s Qualifiers match in Ealing. 

Ian Hardman held his nerve to kick a touchline conversion in the 79th minute as Rovers recovered from 32-22 behind to claim a point. 

London raced into a 14-0 lead inside 17 minutes after Jay Pitts, Elliot Kear and William Barthau all crossed, but Rovers hit back either side of half-time through Connor Farrell, Luke Briscoe and John Davies' double. 

The Broncos regrouped and Jarrod Sammut, Mark Ioane and Andy Ackers scored, the latter on his 100th career appearance, to give them a 10-point advantage with 11 minutes remaining.

But Briscoe dived over in the corner for his second and then Chris Ulugia found a hole in the home defence to score a try which Hardman converted to secure Featherstone something from a dramatic match.
