London Broncos climbed off the bottom of Super League at the expense of Hull KR with a third straight win.
The bottom two sides served up a physical contest where the lead changed hands three times with both teams scoring four tries.
Morgan Smith crossed in the first half for Broncos before tries from Alex Walker, Jordan Abdull and Rob Butler.
Weller Hauraki, Adam Quinlan, Chris Atkin and Josh Drinkwater went over for the Robins who let an 18-8 lead slip.
Broncos had led 8-6 at the break before Hull KR scored 18 unanswered points with three tries either side of half-time.
But Walker narrowed the deficit soon after before man of the match Adbull was adjudged to have got fingers on a loose ball in the Hull KR in-goal area at the same time as Quinlan.
Kieran Dixon’s goal regained the lead and Butler’s score five minutes from time, his first for the club, proved decisive.
Drinkwater pulled his side back to within two points in the last two minutes but it was in vain.
Hull KR drop below 11th-placed Leeds on points difference while Broncos climb to 10th and off the bottom for the first time in three months.
