I think this could be the game for London to break the duck.

It was great to have Til Vea and Nesi Mataitonga down at training with Newham Dockers under 15s last night, and their enthusiasm has  rubbed off on me: London to win 24 -18.

London to win - I suspect Widnes will be v distracted by the semi over the next few weeks (as I think Cas have been/will be) as that is the biggest game for the club for a decade.

Widnes don't turn up and we win by 2pts, while the rain stays away so we enjoy the BBQ afterwards. Just not that confident.

I really fancy London for this one. Widnes conceding lots of points at the moment.

For the first time this season I can sense a London win. 24-16 in a sloppy game.

At work unfortunately, on overtime! 

 

I'm happy with the result obviously, as I didn't want to be the first team to get beaten by them (plus we've lost 4 and drawn 1 out of our last 5 games!)

London were much poorer than I had hoped or expected.  In attack they played predictable one out rugby, whilst their defence on their left hand side was shocking - it seemed that in the second half, every time Widnes moved the ball right, they got a 2 or 3 v 1.  Duckworth was terrible in attack and defence; he doesn't look either fit or committed.

I wish I had not parted with £ 20 to Barnet FC. I knew London Broncos  were not fit for Super League but I have to make the call now that this mob wil not win a game all season letting the club dissapear in ignomy.

 

The gate of 1,422 IIRC was die to a large Widnes travelling contingent and about 200 free tickets give to school kids who paraded round the ground representing various countries - Wales with Puff the Magic Dragon by the look of it..

In truth Widnes never got out of second gear and London conceded soft try after soft try after soft try. when not knocking on or firing ther ball into the touchline, Credit to the Chemics who can only beat what's in front of them but those who thought Joe Grima was an improvement on Tony Rea :O

 

The Broncos only seem to do well when play becomes unstructured a bit like "when wide to "west" becomes the game plan. Maybe it is the gameplan. A case in point being Denny Solomonas outpacing of the Widnes defence to touch down from a kick through in the right hand corner on the stroke of half time.

 

People crack on about London's crowds but given the fare on offer - and I would not call this entertainment by any means - and the fact this has gone on for five years now of much the same, I think it's a minor miracle there is still a hard core of around 700 buying replica shrts is tribute to blind optimism that should be applauded. That said I will not be back until Hull KR, I could go next week against Wigan but although there will be one good team,on the pitch it will not be the one I am barracking for.... :crying:

 

I get on the tube at Canons Park at 4.51pm and there on the platform is Barwick in mufti or at least his doppelganger, he started at me, I at him, I wondered was it him, surely such a highly paid consultant with Daily Mail soccer column and FA payoff not to mention the RFL gold

he is getting, could have better dress sense thatn to turn up looking casual but by no means smart. If it truly was the highly remunerated Twickenham resident. Then I missed the opportunity to beg that the Broncos be granted euthanasia for as things stan Hughes may want a next season but who will be watching.


I am an oil trader and successful at that but, but marketing, finance, business management, human resources etc are not my strengths

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

Easier said than done, but Broncos fans need to keep the faith. OK they will be playing in the championship next season, but with Joe Grima in charge and a good pre season they will be in for a great season next year.
