John Kirkpatrick scored a first-half hat-trick and Lee Greenwood bagged four as the Broncos routed Hunslet to move into the Powergen Cup fifth round.

However, it was Mark McLinden's tactical kicking and slick handling that were the foundations for the win.

Hunslet's only try came from stand-off Mark Cass before the half-time break.

The cup means a lot to us and we showed good intent
London coach Tony Rea

London coach Tony Rea was happy with his team's determination, saying: "The cup means a lot to us and we showed good intent.

"We wanted to put a good scoreline on and I didn't make that easy by switching people around, and Hunslet pushed hard and showed good fitness.

"I was really happy with the way we applied ourselves and respected the opposition. Hunslet had a couple of breaks but we had plenty chasing back."
