Never the happiest of hunting grounds for us, regardless of how poor London have been occasionally.

Still, I'll be unusually optimistic this week... :o

London 16 Hull FC 26.

Will be going to this one with the usual sense of dread of what I'm about to see but you never know, we've crushed the mighty Reds and the powerful Tigers on the road so perhaps it's time to do something at home. Lahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhndan!

London by four though needless to say not overly confident.

For the info of those intending to use the mainline trains from Waterloo to Twickenham
best note there are no services at all this weekend to Twickenham Station.
You can either get a Waterloo connection to Teddington or Hounslow and get a rail
replacement bus to Twickenham Station or in the case of Hounslow catch a 281 bus
a hundred yards or so from the station for the 15 min journey alighting at Twickenham Stadium.

Or if you fancy a stroll its a 30 min plus walk from Richmond Station following the A316.

I doubt it as there are no trains between Barnes and Whitton.

Looks like you are right. Always seems to happen at least once per season. Will be a pain in the ###### to get there tomorrow and this will put off a good portion of the already shrinking fanbase. Another good reason for moving away from the Stoop

Broncos have tweeted there is going to be a pitch inspection due to pools of water on the pitch.I know a lot of people who have set off already, they need to make a decision quick.

London v Hull FC now in doubt due to waterlogged pitch.

Inspection due later on today, hope it's in good time although, most, if not all Hull fans will already have set off.

The clash of the two clubs who have most dissapointed their fans in 2013, The last two home clashes at the Stoop and Gillingham against a Powell coached Bronquins have been close and I expect the same today but as I have forsworn tipping the Broncos following their humbling by Widnes it's Hull to reel in the points.

I would expect the game to go ahead if water is the issue though the Stoop does not have undersoil heating

On London's future location scratch this one out

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Disappointing - Broncos could and should have been that partner, and should never have moved away from Griffin Park in the first place. Another example of RL being the front runner only to let union in. If Wasps move in with Brentford, that would be north and west London sewn up by union, leaving only north east, east and south London ripe

All the same, I've decided to not go. Too much hassle farting around with buses/trains/buses as well as #### weather and a sub 1500 crowd
