Travel was a mare though having been thrown off the train at Barnes when on a train bound for Hounslow.
Was sorted for the return journey though as through trains to Reading were running through Hounslow even
if those due to terminate at Hounslow werent.
Five and a quarter hour round trip,but it was worth it.


When my sister used to live in Whitton, I used to visit her on the occasional weekend, and getting there by train was almost always an unpleasant experience. Seems like nothing's changed.

and he's not alone in that I'm sure. Many may mock the Broncos crowds but those that do go more often than not travel far far further for a home game than many a 'heartlander' would be prepared to do.

I don't think many folk would have a go at the dedication of Broncos fans, we just wish that there were more of them.

Thats good of you to suggest that Chronicler but there were 3 others in the same boat saturday and two of those tend to do
half of the away games also.To be fair I will be at the away Cats fixture but they maybe it for me as I need the Annual Leave
for the World Cup.
But as Rascal rightly suggests there are a good few others putting in the distances and hours to attend home games.
Cheers for that anyway mind. Spicer.

Or swimming out of by the sounds of it

Having seen the Super League Show, you weren't far off. I'm a bit surprised the referee deemed that pitch playable.

I must admit ive only been to Whitton once and that was after a home saturday fixture when having got to Twickenham saw a train on the platform
showing London Waterloo as its destination and thus legged it down the stairs got on, and travelled West much to my dismay..
As it was lateish that cost me a 40 min wait to get a service back to Waterloo.Did I laugh NOT, :D

By the looks of our display its wasn't. One certain Radio Humberside presenter tweeted the ground staff were not happy it was called playable by the ref, quoting a member of the ground staff saying " didn't the ref know that they had some very important RU games on here soon !"
