#3040911 London Broncos launch business club!

Posted by EastLondonMike on 04 December 2014 - 01:12 PM

Bronco's shirt launch is next week. On the 11th.. Launch is taking place in the shadows of Tower Bridge and combined with a meet and greet session i believe (in a nearby park/green), for those interested in going down.

No idea when they will have the kits for sale though.

Any jersey with an over sized crest (or in this case, castle), vintage photos and the like, printed within the background of a jersey is all wrong. Cheap looking and un-imaginative. Really disappointing effort from Errea.

Apologies Fev fans, but this did make me laugh and shake my head in equal measure.. Its been mentioned on this thread and another thread about clubs being professional in their attitude towards things like kit launches and how their presented etc..

Nice Widnes jersey (though personally would have opted for black shorts).. and a real nice promo video. The new sponsor logo works very well with the kit design. Looks very good. Well done Widnes and O'Neills.

Some things never change. It seems to be a case of once England have played Australia, nothing else matters.. Nothing will change either until we ditch the BBC (something that should have been done long ago) and partner with another terrestrial TV broadcaster. Even if it costs us money, an increase in exposure and a partner who actually wants to push the sport would be worth it.

Is this still going on?.. i thought some sort of resolution with the bigoted Olympic committee was being sorted.


Another reason why a genuine IRLF is needed.

The last i heard the SARU had written to the Olympic committee and informed them RL was not anything to do with RU, but the imbecile in charge at the Olympic committee was refusing to budge on his stance.

lets not forget this time last week the team that HAD to be named on the tuesday wasn't the team that took to the pitch. McNamara might surprise us again and select Whitehead, who seems to be the one player over all others that the majority want to see get a chance. This time last week no one would have thought Sarginson would have been selected over Shenton.

Obviously Aussie fans are gonna say England got away with murder at the ruck, which I find laughable. Especially when you take into consideration the amount of late flops by the Aussie tacklers in three and four man tackles. If I'd had a pound for every time Cameron smith was third man in on a tackled player I'd be laughing!

I think the ref allowed England a certain amount of leeway in the ruck and therefore also allowed Australia to do what they wanted at the ruck in return. There tactics effected us more than ours effected them. I'd like to see how many NRL sides over the last couple of years went an entire second half without receiving a penalty..

The fact we had an Australian ref forced on us, at the very least the Video ref should have been English.

Cheated. Video refs ruling that the ball was bouncing up was disgusting.

When that went to the video ref there was no way in the world it was gonna be given. Absolutely disgusting.

They really love the 'list of failed converts'.. If it didn't appear every time Rugby League players are mentioned it would be quite funny.

What is the saying? If you tell a lie often enough, soon enough people start believing

The big thing for me is the potential for early penalties. Giving Australia repeated shots at our line in the opening 20 will result in tries conceded. 


I guess we have to combat this early by giving the referee absolutely no reason to blow his whistle.


During the game every player needs to get into the ref for any repeat offences like holding down, slowing the PTB etc .. Like i said in a previous post i don't really like putting extra pressure on the refs, but for this one game, its all on.

Its absolutely appalling.. The England management should be speaking out about this, and in doing so put as much pressure on the referee as possible. Its not a nice thing to do, but as the Australians are so clearly seeking some extra advantage, in this instance i think its fair comment.


Maybe we should take bets on what tackle of the first set we get penalised on.. I'm going for tackle 3.
