Whilst much easier for me to get to, I feel the same. This was the match I've least enjoyed, because I felt the players didn't turn up. It wasn't the least entertaining, it was that only one team were up for it.

RL really is a good game to watch and it’s a real shame you’ve jumped on this season when we have fallen apart. By way of example, if memory serves, last season we spanked Newcastle by a similar score by which they have just spanked us. What a life!

Yeah the pass to latu or should we say over Latu a good try scoring opportunity, I put that down more to poor technique than poor decision making though.

Probably the worst London performance I have seen last night. Hughes is responsible because it was surely he who decided that we would field a L1 side this season. It is time for the invisible man to explain himself.

I am wondering if more gets spent on the stadium security than on the team ?

The invisible man was at the dewsbury game, believe he is out the country most of time at the moment, as I understand it, had we lost that one, the coach was gone. Not sure what expectations from last night were, so would not be shocked if Germain stays put a while.
Reckon as long as we can beat dewsbury home and away Workington home and away and get one other win to stay up thats probably all that was expected by him for this season

I can’t really judge the performance but was more entertained (in the loosest sense of the word) last night than when we played Widnes in the season opener in front of a big crowd and basically holed the season under the waterline within 15 minutes. As for the Haven game: that was just sxxt.
I totally agree that with a gap of 6 + weeks where only a few hardy souls will see Broncos play, now is the time for the decision makers to give us their state of play address and tell us what they think is happening. They will no doubt want to talk about crowd levels and corporate that will be up on last year ( I suspect we are back to pre COVID levels@1000) but of course the off set in ground rent etc will almost certainly mean are net profits are down. There seems little merchandise on sale, the lottery seems to be down to the last few, the squad builder is silent, no programmes and the raffle tickets are advertised in such a half arsxx way I bet sales are not what they could be. Then there is player sponsorship- is that up. I don’t think so. Yes it will be interesting to hear what plans they have.

I think you may be right NB. The problem is can we really be expected to buy in to this level of squad/performance long term? Scrapping around the bottom of the league in the best stadium in the league, albeit 3/4 closed. I wonder if they have a plan of improvement or is it simply they hope Leyland and Horsmann will reach their potential sooner or later and then we’ll be alright. I have a nasty feeling I can guess what it is.

That makes sense, I can't believe he would spend so little on a team he felt obliged to watch.

If Hughes's expectations are that it is ok to be drubbed at home by Newcastle then he should have more respect for the club's fans.

This was my first trip to Wimbledon since I wouldn't attend while blocked by the club on Twitter. So in fact, there may have been worst performances this season but not that I have seen.

The 900+ crowd was more than I expected and the atmosphere was OK. However, there is no Broncos presence at all the stadium. As a minimum, they should focus some activities (like raffle tickets sales, team sheets) in the area near the turnstiles. Also have Buck and Dusty and a few of the incredible volume of security acting as 'gamesmakers' in Broncos gear to welcome people (newcomers expecially) and tell them where things are. It is pointless playing in what is a good facility without putting some effort into making it more of an experience. Despite all that, we won't grow crowds with a poop team.

Hughes target was 5,000 in 3 years. Ain't going to happen without big changes both on and off the field.
