It was a weekend of surprise results in Super League and Urswick’s Greg Richards was involved in one of them as London Broncos earned their second win in a row by defeating Catalans Dragons 30-12 at Perpignan last Saturday.

Richards was an interchange as the Broncos built on the previous week’s sensational golden-point victory against St Helens, as Rhys Williams scored two of their five tries.

Their other scorers were Jordan Abdull, Elliot Kear and Keiran Dixon were the visitors’ other scorers, negating a hat-trick from Catalans’ Fouad Yaha, as London recorded just their second away win of the season.

Their head coach Danny Ward said: “We’re not the flashest team on paper and we might not be spending as much as other teams but we’ve got a good attitude and they’re working hard.

“We’re not getting carried away. It’s just another win. We’re still bottom of the table, but it keeps the pressure on the teams above us.”

The reason the Broncos are still bottom is Hull Kingston Rovers also upsetting the form book, as four goals from Barrovian Ryan Shaw helped them to a 16-14 victory over second-placed Warrington Wolves at the other Craven Park.

Shaw turned out to be Hull KR’s match winner, as he converted brilliantly from the touchline to snatch victory after Adam Quinlan’s try had levelled the score in the closing stages.

It was a first win in charge for new head coach Tony Smith and it moved them level on points with Leeds Rhinos, who were defeated 23-14 at home by Wigan Warriors last Friday night.

There was local interest in the match at Headingley, as former Barrow’s Brad Singleton played from the start for Leeds, while former Raider Joe Bullock was among the interchanges for Wigan, who are up to seventh.

Former Barrow Island forward Morgan Knowles helped St Helens move six points clear at the top of the table as they eased to a 38-2 win at home to Huddersfield Giants, with England winger Tommy Makinson scoring a hat-trick.

In the Championship, one-loan Wigan second row Liam Paisley, who is from Dalton, bagged a hat-trick of his own as Swinton Lions stunned second-placed Toulouse with a 20-18 victory away from home last Saturday.
