Michael Witt scored 22 points as London Broncos moved into the fifth round of the Challenge Cup with a 72-4 thrashing of Dewsbury.
Witt scored two of Broncos' 13 tries and kicked seven goals as the under-strength Championship side went down with a whimper.
Broncos took the lead on six minutes, Antonio Kaufusi barging through some weak tackles to rumble over at the posts.
Four minutes later they added their second score, Kieran Dixon claiming a Craig Gower kick to speed over in the corner.
The game went into a lull after that, the Broncos content to stay in second gear while Dewsbury lacked the guile to create any unrest in the London ranks.
In fact it was the 22nd-minute mark before there was a further score, Chad Randall twisting and stretching to sneak over and push the home side into a 16-0 lead.
The fourth try was not long in coming, Dan Sarginson streaking clear to race home from the halfway line.
Dixon then added his second when he darted in at the corner from Sarginson's pass as the Broncos ran riot.
To their credit the Rams did come close to a try of their own before the break, but strong tackling from both Shane Rodney and Jamie O'Callaghan ensured Matthew Tebb was unable to ground the ball.
There was still time for a further London try before the interval, Luke Dorn stepping on the gas to cruise over.
It was more of the same in the second half, O'Callaghan the first to go over on 42 minutes, with Witt and Chris Bailey touching down shortly after.
Dewsbury already looked as though they were running on empty, with basic handling errors stopping them gaining any momentum.
Kaufusi then muscled over for his second score to push London past the 50-point mark.
The Rams finally gave their travelling fans cause for cheer in the 62nd minute when Jamaine Akaidere crossed in the corner after a break from Matty Nicholson.
But that proved brief respite for the visitors, Witt restoring order minutes later when he cantered home after a searing Dorn break.
The hosts were not quite finished, Matt Cook and then O'Callaghan bursting in for late scores, Gower converting both from out wide.
