THE RED ROOSTER; You seem to have a knowledge of the inner workings of London. Do you know whom's counsel David Hughes seeks on coaching appointments, as I would say he has been poorly advised in respect of the last three.
I do feel for London, as they are competing in an intensely saturated sporting environment. God knows how many football clubs at various levels, plus half a dozen or so Premier RU clubs is an enviable task in anybody's book.
All that said, they really don't help themselves. The Broncos was becoming an established/recognisable name; Why change? This is further compounded by their nomadic existence.
They really do need a long term approach to how they are going to go about the running of the club. By that, I don't mean a three/five year plan, I mean at least ten years plus. How you do this with an owner who is willing to sell on, is a whole different proposition entirely.
It is my take, that London are a focal point for amateur RL for the whole of Southern England, a clear career path for those juniors wanting to play the game as a fulltime pro. If they are allowed to go, what message does that send to prospective professional players?
Arguably, the biggest point is losing that SL presence on the doorstep of the media. It is hard enough to get column inches as it stands, without giving them another reason to ignore the game.
