Playing at Esher in front of at best a couple of thousand is simply making the SL Brand a laughing stock.


Just to be clear, you would have expected more than a couple of thousand at the Stoop?

Gonna go to this tonight. Looking forward to going on the road and having a few ales.

Good way to start a long lazy weekend!

Your're probably disappointed at yet another blowout score then.

Never mind, at least Leeds and Bradford had a blowout 18-18 draw.

School teams get better crowds than that.
London has failed, allowed to wither on the Vine.
It has been going bad for years with nothing happening other than a slow death.

If they start winning at home they may see a gradual increase.

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

I said intially I thought it was farcical that the match wasnt postponed and my view certainly hasnt changed.
I also believe its embarassing to be playing Super League at such a small venue and yes it does the image of the
game little good.
That said the pitch was in very good nick and the Esher Club were pretty good hosts as it were on the night.
As regards the game its difficult to call to an extent as watched the first half in the stand and the second at pitch side
opposite on the Cats 20, and your overview really wasnt that great.
Id say London edged the first half with Catalan largely dominatiing the second.
Overall I thought it was a pretty solid London performance to follow the previous two,but as ever sloppy defending
let in a few soft tries along with a gifted intercept in our own 20. Not sure who it was but may have been Witt. (he has
previous). Rather thought Cats were brought down to our level in the first period as they looked a little flat with no spark
whatsover. Different story in the second half with as they stepped up a gear without needing to excell to any great extent.
Encouraging though that we stayed with them and competed from start to finish,
Not sure Craig Gower was fit as he looked largely anonymous.
ANother nice try by Kieron from what I could see of of it.
A defeat,but Ive seen a lot worse.

Was t,alking to an Esher Club member at the end and to one of there staff members earlier in the evening who were claiming
that we will be there again next friday for the Bulls fixture.
Surely not as our CEO claimed they wanted the game played at Esher to keep the momentum going,but thats lost now
isnt it ? But then again this is London and just like he stadia last night we are not Super League in so many ways.
Just hope they can keep it respectable monday at Warrington.
