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.

The visitors had too much pace and power in their backs, and used this advantage cleverly by chipping the Rhinos defence or going blind.

Rhinos' hooker Mat Brown scored a consolation try late on, but by then the game was out of reach.
Cooper said: "The two teams beneath us both won and now they've got momentum. It's disastrous for us."
