A good signing for the London Broncos. I do think the Broncos will have a good season next year, and i would't be surprised if the avergae gate next year is highers than this years.

I agree with you about the gates, even factoring in less support from the visiting team.

 

I think there will be more smiles on the faces of the 1024 next season.

Williams is probably a good signing at that level. Don't think he is quite Super League quality but big and quick enough. Lacks the elusiveness and game sense to be top quality.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Looks like London will have most of their squad in place to start pre-season training together in November, which will be a massive step forward for them. Be really interesting to see how they go as one of the "big boys" next year.

They're on the verge of signing Barthau and Baile both from Catalans and French internationals. Barthau is top-Championship low-SL level and Baile is mid-SL level. Let's see if Herold stays and it would be 3 Frenchies.

If they could sign up Springer and Margalet, I would be rather happy too.

They seem like a couple of good signings!

No doubt to be replaced with another Australasian player!

It must be nice to be surrounded by professional (and semi-pro) clubs from which to sign players. London has always found it difficult to persuade northerners to leave their mummies.

I sponsored Rhys Williams for a World Cup game and met him afterwards. seemed like a really good bloke. This is what his Australian club the Capras has said about the move:
