There will be two team talks here - Shaun Wane will be talking about standards increasing their points difference and nilling the Broncos. Tony Rea about performance and by performance I mean playing out the set of six, making Wigan attack from deep and no stupid penalties on the fourth / fifth tackle. On the face of it it's Chelsea v Dagenham and Redbridge, but on the field its XIII plays XIII and that 's the way to approach the game.

 

Having achieved the scalp of Gus Mackay, it would appear there is now a clamour for Tony Rea's head. I have still to see a cogent plan for his successor anywhere though, nor any explanation offered for how a change in coach would lead to a magical transformation in a squad of players who are simply either not ready or not good enough for the League they are playing in.

 

The RFL should not have sanctioned the club playing in Super League this year knowing full well the problems on the field and off it. Yet here we are and it is what it is, and let me tell you that next to Steve Magee, Tony Rea has more claim to the title "Mr London Broncos" than most and if Tony felt that by stepping aside as Head Coach he would be helping the club he would do so in an instant. It would not help the club as things stand and there is no alternative but to plug on. What the side cannot do is pack up for if this happens then there is no further point in London's existence.

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

Agreed. I can't wait.

Who said the SL was up to NRL standard?

Meh, disappointing to lose after getting to a 10-nil start, the game changer conceding three tries just before HT. Even more disappointing when a certain man from Gravesend who shall not be named scores twice and Sarginson also gets two. Oh well, pleased for Mike McM to get another and Macani getting a try, biggest shock of the night being Jamie O'C getting a try! Hopefully we can improve on this against Catalans next week, but knowing this season so far, we'll probably end up conceding 50.

36-14 in the end. It was 26-14 with ten left, so they got two late scores to make it look more one sided.

There was this thing called a 3-year licence. Broncos had a year to run. It would hardly be a 3-year licence if the RFL could revoke it.

London seem to be getting there. The main issue now seems to be conceding lots of points towards the back end of each half. Hopefully they're not too far off a win

There was this thing called a 3-year licence. Broncos had a year to run. It would hardly be a 3-year licence if the RFL could revoke it.

 

And as I understood it Licences could be revoked. If not, then why the angst over Bradford's first journey into administration (or was that all just to wind Bulls fans up). Licencing failed because clubs like London, Wakefield, Bradford and Salford were all allowed to either go bankrupt or decay at the foot of the table year after year withoiut sanction. In hindsight it's hard not to diagree with Andy Wilson on backchat that London's place in Super League should have been addressed two years ago.

 

Still I welcome your damascene conversion in favour of as London presence in Super League. ;)

 

From what I understand of the game, London had a dig at the DW and some late tries blew out the scoreline. I am sure that Tony Rea can draw some positives out of this performance and I am confident that something can be achieved this coming Thursday.

Looks to me like decent Championship team playing a SL side taking it nice and steady with the tricky Easter programme coming up.

This is probably about right but it gives me more hope that thursday`s 4 hour round trip will be more than worth my while.

What with louis mccarthy scarsbrook, omari caro and 7 of 10 tries in the Wigan game coming from London recruits it looks like the London area is really contributing to breaking the M62 constraints the game operates within. How many other "London" players are there out there this weekend?

And with Kevin Larroyer starring for HKR and Jamil Fakir at Bradford Catalans offer more than a great weekend away trip.

If the RFL said a 3-year licence then a three-year licence is what they should have. And yes while there are probably some situations that might have led to a loss of licence, I can't see how any of them applied. Bradford may have gone into administration but London didn't. They may have been sh*t but that's not a reason for revoking a licence.

 

edit: I've never been against a SL side in London. I'm certainly against bankrupting the sport in an attempt to keep them afloat.
