Haringey Rhinos slumped to the bottom of the London 3 north west table after a "disastrous" defeat.
Fitness was the key factor according to Rhinos director of rugby Alan Cooper, who says his side need a miracle to stay up.
After a promising Rhinos start, the visitors scored the opening try after 15 minutes.
The Rhinos then took control of the game and were rewarded with a try by Derick Cordy.

Just before the break, however, some sloppy defence allowed London free passage to the try line, giving them a 10-7 lead.
The visitors had too much pace and power in their backs, and used this advantage cleverly by chipping the Rhinos defence or going blind.

Cooper said: "The two teams beneath us both won and now they've got momentum. It's disastrous for us."
