London Broncos coach Tony Rea refused to get carried away despite seeing his side smash Challenge Cup finalists Warrington 62-18 at the Stoop.

Rea saw his side earn their third straight win as they ran in 10 tries against the weakened Wolves.

Rea said: "I think this is a reflection of us at the minute. We have been building things over the last few weeks and we are really in control of what we are doing. It was a game for the offload and a broken ball sort of game and we did it well. Results like this do happen ahead of cup finals, but we just want to concentrate on ourselves."

For Warrington coach Tony Smith, it was a chastening experience as he rested as many as eight first-team regulars including Lee Briers and Brett Hodgson.

Luke Dorn was the Broncos' hero, grabbing four tries for the second time in a week as the Broncos moved up to 12th in the Super League table.

For Dorn it took his tally in London colours to 102 tries, the first to break the century barrier.

Not only that, but the result also stopped Warrington going top.

Smith said: "There were plenty of lessons for us out there and we need to dust ourselves down quick.

"It is not the end of the world but we are certainly looking at it.

"This game is all about momentum and when London got on a roll in the second half we just couldn't seem to stem the tide."
