Barrovian Ryan Shaw was involved in a crucial match at the bottom of Super League last Thursday, as Hull Kingston Rovers went down to a dramatic 26-24 defeat against London Broncos.

The result lifted London, who have now won their last three games, off the bottom of the table and planted Hull KR there in their place, despite Shaw kicking four goals at the Trailfinders Sports Ground.

The lead changed hands three times in Ealing , with the visitors overturning an 8-0 deficit by scoring 18 unanswered points through tries by Weller Hauraki, Adam Quinlan and Chris Atkin either side of half-time.

From 18-8 behind, tries by Alex Walker and Jordan Abdull hauled the Broncos level before they went ahead through Keiran Dixon's goal and Rob Butler's score, with Josh Drinkwater's late effort producing a rousing finish.

Urswick's Greg Richards was left out of the game, after which Hull KR coach Tony Smith said: "It's not one that got away, but I'd have liked to have seen us ask a few more questions of London in the first half.

"We left it too late to show what we're capable of. London did what they do very well, they play their pitch exceptionally well."

Brad Singleton's Leeds Rhinos are level on points at the foot of the table, and the Barrovian started the match as they were comfortably defeated 36-10 at leaders St Helens, who rested ex-Barrow Island forward Morgan Knowles, last Friday.

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook scored two of Saints' six tries at the Totally Wicked Stadium, where Barrow Raiders will be playing Leigh Centurions in the quarter finals of the 1895 Cup tomorrow night.

Former Raider Joe Bullock missed his first league game of the season, as Wigan Warriors moved up to sixth with a 38-22 win at Huddersfield Giants.

Bullock was left out by Wigan head coach Adrian Lam after playing in far more minutes at this stage of the season than had been anticipated.

In the Betfred Championship, Askam's Brad Walker started Widnes Vikings' match against Batley Bulldogs at the Halton Stadium, which ended in a narrow 28-22 win for the home side.

The result moved Widnes up to tenth and kept them one point ahead of Barrow in the battle to avoid the drop.
