can somebody please tell me what london bring to the table. in my view they never earned the right to be in sl and have been kept artificially afloat on numerous occasions,they lead a nomadic existance on meagre support and have had the rules bent to accomadate more 2nd rate aussies. they get next to no media coverage and allways finnish towards the bottem of the league.they seem to have learned nothing, and not grown since the sl was introduced. i know their are more kids playing rl in the schools down there, but after yesterday, is it time to pull the plug! rant over

I am more concerned about the attendance at a semi final, just over 6,000 people attended the game played within the same borough of one of the competing sides, When Wigan played London in Super League earlier this season 11,000 people turned up.

We all know that that bring nothing to the game no fans, no money at the end off the day only a handfull off people from the big city is intreasted in the team and making it work. If the rfl realy want a team that bad down south why no look to Devon or Cornwall and build from there
