Fans are more likely to come out if the woodwork as London Broncos than Quins. Dropping the Broncos tag was a huge mistake in the first place. I know a fair few fans who stopped going when the club left Griffin Park. Its all in place for London to build again. We just need to start winning one or two games to keep us in the hunt...,
I too am aware of a handful of fans who refused to go to the Stoop or follow the team during that period, but let's not kid ourselves.
Harlequins Rugby League over the 6 year period 2006-2011 attracted 293,255 fans to 79 home games at an average of 3,712 a pop. Taking away that ridiculous double header crowd of 12,301 and replacing it with the Huddersfield average at the time of 2,595, drops this down to 3,589 per game.
The 6 years prior to this at The Valley and Griffin Park delivered 296,257 fans to 83 games, averaging 3,569 a pop.
Now, here we are 2 years and 3 home games into being London Broncos v.2 and 68,878 people have attended 29 games delivering 2,375.
Harlequins Rugby League and/or playing at the Stoop didn't cause this melt-down.........
