What's the story with Ioane? Have London just let him go and if so why would they do that? (I'm not a Broncos fan just puzzled).

In the past London would keep the fans updated on players leaving when it was more of a community club. On the final home game they would be presented to the crowd like they did at The Stoop.

These days the marketing team tend to tell the fans 'nothing'. So I doubt any fan could answer your question.

He had a great season during our promotion year but wasn't really used in SL. I would have thought keeping hold of him would have been the preferred choice, sadly not. Very popular with the fans.

I know he went back to NZ to get married. If that means he is staying there is another question. As EDS states, we get told nothing. Even now the club hasn't really outlined who has left and its a case of fathoming out from a variety of other sources. Pretty unimpressive on the whole.

Whilst at the same time being bombarded with emails reminding you to renew your season ticket- Odd to say the least.

Was hoping Cunningham would have stayed, he would have been useful at Championship level - he really didn’t impress in SL last season.

He won't be a great loss imo.
Especially after his performances last season.
Pelissier, Fozard and Davis is enough in that position.

I believe it's 15 out and 7 in. 9 if you include the promotion of the 2 young halfbacks.

Need at least 4 more in asap.

Disagree with the comments above, Cunningham certainly isn't a 7 but he was our best hooker.

Fozard is a good player and will do a good job for us, but we're lacking beyond that. Pelissier is someone I have never rated at all - he kills momentum and allows defenders to close down the space in front of us with that horrible couple of steps he insists on taking before passing the ball. Likewise, with that step one way followed by turning back on himself and passing in the other direction. It means the first receiver has less time when he finally gets the ball in his hands. He's never shown any sign of improvement, but gets a free pass because once a game he makes a decent scoot and picks up a few metres.
