Broken arm for Broncos Mbu
London Broncos have lost Joe Mbu for the remainder of the season.
The young back-rower broke his arm early in the second half and will require corrective surgery this week.
Tony Rea commented:
?It's a severe break and he's also dislocated his wrist. He played on valiantly until it was safe to get from the field.?
He's is to be applauded for the way he put his teammates ahead of himself when he was clearly in a lot of pain. He's a tough character Joe, and he's very much valued in the team."

WEIRD AND WILD CATS GET DRESSED FOR THE ROAD
You've got to hand it to the Wakefield Wildcats fans...they are certainly a weird and wild bunch.
Their annual pilgrimage to the capital has turned into a major event over the years and this Sunday's visit to Griffin Park promises to be just as crazy.
It's a very popular fixture in the Wildcats Super League season and a lot of effort goes into the wacky old road trip.
Each year's visit carries a different theme. In years gone by Wakefield fans have come dressed as monks, nuns, Tango-men, wild west characters, Elvis look-a-likes, emus, fighter pilots...and...erm...well, strange types who seemingly have got the fancy dress theme a little mixed up! See www.londonbroncos.co.uk for living proof.
On Sunday the Wildcats' fans will come dressed as movie characters, so the mind boggles about what to expect.
A source within the Wakefield camp has revealed that their club Chief Executive is set to appear at Griffin Park dressed as one of Cinderella's ugly sisters! Surely not??
Wakefield are enjoying a great season and currently placed in sixth position on the table with just four rounds of the regular season to play.
They will come to Griffin Park dressed to thrill off the pitch, and brimming with confidence on it.
It will be the fourth game between London and Wakefield this season, the Wildcats having won both Super League games (16-39 round five, 48-18 round 13), and they sent the Broncos from the Challenge Cup in the fifth round in March at Griffin Park (10-29).
So what will Sunday bring for the Broncos and Wildcats? Some suggested titles...Magnificent 7, Mission Impossible, A Bridge Too Far, A few Good Men, Untouchables, Dennis the Menace, Dirty (Bakers) Dozen?medi
If you have other suggested movie titles which might reflect Sunday?s impending drama at Griffin Park, email [email protected] ? the ten best will appear in the award-winning match day magazine.
