OK. We've got no fans and we play out of a wedding venue, but our team is predominantly home grown and this year after 7 games we've seen to the Superleague champions of the last 4 seasons.......we may well still go back down, but don't anyone (especially smug Wigan fans saying we're lucky to be in SL) Say "WE DON'T DESERVE OUR DAY IN THE SUN".
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Considering London's opening fixtures, they have done remarkably well to be on 6 points. 6 or 7 more wins could see them survive. There will be a few clubs quite nervous right now as everyone thought the bottom place in super league was cut and dried before a ball was kicked.

A majority of us were expecting them to relegated, but like a few on here I'm not sure about that now.

Well done to Ward and London. To stick with the players that won promotion looked a big gamble but it is paying off so far
Woody: Can I pour you a draft, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: A little early, isn't it Woody?
Woody: For a beer?
Norm: No, for stupid questions.

David Ward has done a remarkable job in forging a team together with tremendous team spirit.

Anyone who beats Leeds, Wigan and Wakefield after 7 matches has to be respected.

Wish David Hughes would plunge into the transfer market for one big signing.

No disrespect to the players but a big name could bring in more support and would also make the news in the southern led press and tv.

Think that Eddie Battye is starting to be a cult hero!

I agree, I think if they could manage to get 1 or 2 big signings from Union they could really increase the gate and the interest in RL in London
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Sorry, but it's thinking like that that kills clubs. One or two big name signings will magically increase the gate 3 fold! Increasing gates is a far more tricky animal as many know and requires an overall strategy that comes to fruition over a number of years. I really do hope London manage that though!

A brilliant start to the season for the Broncos, long may it continue, they will stay up this year. Team spirit counts for so much, those players and Ward plus the owner for sticking with the club through thick and thin is a fantastic story.

Dont think we will underestimate them next week, going to be a tough visit for FC

Agreed, everyone thought relegation was cut & dried this year but if London can keep picking up the odd win it’s gonna be a twitchy year for a number of clubs.

Let’s not forget this was an away win & not on their plastic pitch, where supposedly their only wins would come.
