Keeping the side that's now top of the table to a 1 try margin doesn't sound too bad. As far as the Bradford game's concerned, a move to another ground wouldn't suprise me as Quins won't want us playing on their 'precious' turf just before a vital Heineken Cup tie. Makes me ponder whether we've played our last game at the Stoop.

Workington.v.London 1996 1400........
Halifax.v.London 2003 1276......

Lower than that?


and both were hurriedly rearranged in the face of freak weather at rugby union grounds: oops no they weren't

Let's not pretend that the Broncos don't have major problems. Biut its seems that problems have s different meaning for other clubs in the so called heartlands that have issues. Broncos have problems and they are a farce and a joke, a laughing stock and all the other clichs. Other clubs fo ome reason seem to b viewed differently. The two club you mention have been in and out of financial strife, and periods of meagre crowds for large chunks of their history.

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

That has got to right. I enjoyed watching so close to the pitch. At the stoop you are some distance from pitch.i was on the car park side.

Id be surprised if weve played our last game there but can certainly see the Bulls fixture being played elsewhere.
As I say though its not good having Super League played at venues such as last night with all due respects to Esher.
We got the impression Cats werent that impressed and come 2220 when they left the dressing room area I have a
feeling they were straight out and onto the coach. But as I say I could be wrong there.

I enjoyed last night - except for the result. There was a crowd of 1,136 in attendance which is not far short of the 1,200 I would have had as the attendance at the Stoop. All the London regular faces were there taking in the atmosphere
Keiran Dixon pre-game on the pitch was complaining the floodlights were low but in truth these were jo lower than those at the Old Willows.
As for the game disappointing that London shot themselves in the foot with at least 4 tries coming off turnovers and the only time Catalans were ahead was the last score.but if we keep turning the ball over that's what happens.
Esher as ever a hospitable club, and good to see a game going with few stewards standing around doing nothing unlike our Home Venue. A proper atmosphere there for both home and away fans, of of which there were a few, and better catering than at the Stoop.

I am an oil trader and successful at that but, but marketing, finance, business management, human resources etc are not my strengths

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

Broncos have problems and they are a farce and a joke, a laughing stock and all the other cliches. Other clubs for some reason seem to be viewed differently (by certain fans).


Then kick 'em out I say............

The trouble is parksider the club will need a new sugar daddy ,IL had to wipe his shares out as there was zero interest.The only way the club will survive in SL if DH pulls the plug is with a very rich overseas backer and a complete clear out (Kookash style:)))))CM

Which hits the nail on the head nicely. In fact I think that I was the first person to openly question DH's running of the club some time back on the Broncos forum, but I'm not sure what the solution is. Perhaps the best thing would be for the current club to finally implode and a phoenix club be established in CC1 as has happened with the Crusaders (now a very well run little outfit), but living where I do I can't say whether there are the people with the interest or time to do this.

Seconded. Would be even better in summer standing/sitting on the grass bank.

Walk to station was quick. I estimate it was half that for the Stoop
