Featherstone Rovers maintained their perfect start to the 2022 Betfred Championship season with 30-12 win against London Broncos on Saturday evening.

Brian McDermottโ€™s side have now won all four of their Betfred Championship outings while opponents London remain winless.

Fullback Brandon Pickersgill continued his impressive try-scoring form as he opened the point-scoring for Rovers. Hooker Dean Parata hit back to draw London level just after the midway point of the first half.

Gareth Galeโ€™s try after 30 minutes ensured the hosts had a six-point lead at half-time.

Gale would double his account in the second half but once again the Broncos replied in quick fashion via halfback Oliver Leyland.

Pickersgill would follow Gale in notching a brace before Craig Hall rounded off the scoring with three minutes remaining.
