It won't fly. People would confuse them with another Super League franchise -- Toulouse Olympique --


Without being sarcastic, TO are hardly a household name and as such unlikely to confuse the assorted chimernee sweeps and pickpockets that follow Skolars or Quins.

Milton Keynes is still too far from the M62.

They should follow Crusaders example and relocate to Chester or thereabouts. sleep.gif

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but I have heard that quins are to play at least two games at MK Dons next season. Someone else also very close to Red Hall said they will re locate to there.

link please.

Somtimes these things get out before any official link. I am sure there will be one along shortly biggrin.gif

Anyway like I said it may only be a couple of games for a trial period and may never happen.

Personally I think there's more chance of Julian Clary being found in bed with Katie Price than there is of us moving to MK. Oxford might be a different matter, however.

MK is a horrible stadium on an industrial park, with virtually no pubs within walking distance.

As a culture, it is about as far from Rugby League's as I can imagine, and I include Twickenham in that.


Rubbish. Its a flawless stadium. On a retail park (not industrial!) like most new stadii. And a short bus ride from the pubs of Bletchley and Fenny Stratford, which are traditional English town areas of MK. It would be the smartist move London RL ever made IF it happens. On the M1, 45 miles nearer the north and a proper local market to sell to.

There was talk of Quins RL playing at the olympic stadium after the 2012 Olympics, but haven't heard anything of late.
if that did happen they could call themselves London Olympians Rugby League Club. a big plus for Rugby League IMHO which would make more people aware that Rugby League is played in London at the olympic stadium.


It's a nice idea (and I've thought that name would be great previously) but West Ham may move there and with the football season starting ever earlier I think they'd be too much overlap before you even consider rental costs etc. Plus a few of the GP RU clubs have already been sniffing around too.

Games at Stadium MK and Regents Park next year will certainly expose the brand around the south. Can only be a positive for RL.


Regents Park?!?!?!? Tell me more....

If it happened, it might be the smartest move Bronquins ever made but you could hardly say the same for London RL. Milton Keynes is not only outside London, it isn't even in the South East.

Milton Keynes is in the South East it is only 50 miles from London.

Technically speaking it is, the South East has a strange border that includes the Thames Valley area.

if West Ham move in they wont share with a union club as the wont want the pitch carved up, which the union game will do. IF they have share, they would sooner share with a Rugby League club as Rugby League does even less damage to a pitch that Soccer, and a majority of the Rugby League games would be played in the Soccer off season.

If West Ham move in they want it keeping/developing into a 55/60000 seater stadium which would make it a waste of time for Quins anyway

who knows, perhaps a move to the Olympic stadium might be the catalyst that brings in a lot more supporters to watch Qunins RL, or what ever they will be known as then.

not overnight, but from little acorns mighty oaks do grow. i think Quins RL as they are known today have possibly one more move to get it right in London. i dont think gates are going to get much better if at all at the Stoop. the options as i see it for them are a move to the olympic stadium after 2012, or a move to a west London soccer staduim. i did live in London for a while a few years back, and i must admit that when the London Bronco's as they were then started playing out of the valley i did think that Rugby League in London would take off, sadly i was wrong.

Typical Wakefield fan - taking pride in another club's downwards spiral even though it's on a par with their own.
