Oh no! You're stuck with me a while longer I'm afraid. :biggrin:


I've amended the title to make it a little less ambiguous

I thought the interview with the former player from South London Storm was informative in his view of young player's allegiance to the Broncos or lack of it. He went to a junior team training session with 35 kids and none were wearing Broncos jerseys. He stated that he would be surprised if many were even aware of the existence of the Broncos.He also stated that the Broncos had little influence or impact on the amateur scene in  London and that could be part of their ongoing failure to grow their fan base.


These opinions mirror my own with regards to the Broncos being crucial to amateur growth in London and the fact that they might disappear is not as big a disaster for then juniors as some posters feel it would be.


It's interesting to hear the views of those people actually in the trenches in the area to get a true perspective of events.

I think he's right: the future of RL in London is going to be bottom up. I stable and successful LBs would be a great asset but that seems a distant prospect at the moment. It's important to remember the breadth of activity with the game in London. I'm looking forward to hearing Skolars plans for their four month exile on Sunday.
