  1. How will the Leigh Metroplitan District supply players for four teams?
  2. Great news if true. I remember sitting in the "heading for a sell out" Wembley with a sea of empty seats!
  3. A unique opportunity to watch the Challenge Cup Final in the company of 2005 Cup Winner Jamie Thackray. As part of his Testimonial Jamie will meet you and your friends before the game and you can then watch the Cup Final with Jamie! A unique opportunity to spend Cup Final day with a winner! http://www.ebay.co.u...-/272319675243?. This experience includes your Challenge Cup Final ticket (Category 3 or 4) sitting with Jamie; no drinks, food or travel included I'm afraid. All proceeds to Jamie's Testimonial Fund.

  5. You obviously didn't see him last week then! Dropped ball, missed tackles, out of position, I honestly can't remember a good play from him in the whole game.
  6. Nothing moist in London? Not heard of pie, mash and liquor? Mind you we're safe with Mushy Peas but there could be a schism across the Pennines between Mint Sauce and Red Cabbage!
  7. I agree. Top player wherever he played - Peter is London Player Number 371.
  8. http://www.lbsa.org.uk/lbsa-forum-thursday-september-10th/ I'm proud to announce that the next meeting of the Supporters Association will be a Fans Forum. It will be held on Thursday September 10th commencing 7pm at Ealing Trailfinders. A great opportunity to discuss a wide range of issues with representatives from the Broncos; including Hendo (and a player or two I hope), Jason Libber, and hopefully david Hughes. Also a first look at the facilities! <script src="safari-extension://com.ebay.safari.myebaymanager-QYHMMGCMJR/94838976/background/helpers/prefilterHelper.js" type="text/javascript"> </script> LBSA Forum.pdf
  9. As it has been (well the Championship 1st v 2nd) since the day the whole thing was announced. I was hoping (against hope) of course that the Broncos would be one of those two! This is not "Every Minute Matters" its "Eighty Minutes Matter"
  10. Canada in a UK part time League unrealistic? Of course. Rugby League building success in Canada unrealistic - no! The Canada team under Stuart Donlan last year build a very successful season; build on that with a good local comp and juniors and in 10 years time we could see a pro Canada (even North America) League. If you're going to do it do it properly (a lesson I learned to my personal debt in Northampton 20 years ago!)
  11. Welcome back Roger - former Development Officer at Hemel Stags!
  12. The Supporters Association can confirm a coach will be running to our game at Leigh on Sunday March 1st - for details and booking go to http://www.lbsa.org.uk/leigh-time-to-lay-the-ghost/. Seats are £26 each (£13 for Under 16s). Plan is to leave from the Hive at around 9 o'clock; leaving Leigh at 5.30. We may be able to pickup going north on the M1 - if you want to come but may struggle to get to the Hive give me a yell and we'll see what we can do. Bookings have started already - its first come first served! This will be the first busload of us for a good few years. I'm really looking forward to it; including the historic victory we will achieve at the venue of probably our biggest humiliation!
  13. My latest post on the rllist blog Its been difficult being a Broncos fan these last few years; and the last twelve months have probably been the worst. We've lost a lot of good supporters over these years, and the rump of us are now watching our team in a stadium that really is not what Super League should be about. We've had a good welcome from people at the Hive don't get me wrong, and I'm sure things will click in to place over the season as they start to "get" Rugby League. We can make a difference though. As Robbie Hunter-Paul (@RHunterPaul) wrote in his article "Testing Times" in this month's Rugby League World "The club belongs to its supporters and all you are doing as an owner is guiding the direction the club is currently moving in. Yes you may hire the coach and eat in the posh boxes but in reality it still belongs to the person stood in the terrace, because they were stood there before you took control and they'll be stood there after you have gone." We can play our part starting next week in transforming the Broncos back from being a "team" to being a "club". We owe it to our superb local juniors who have made it to Super League; we owe it to great Broncos players of the past like Rob Purdham, Steele Retchless, Peter Gill and Mark McLinden; we owe it to the young London players enjoying the game today; we owe it to ourselves and we owe it to the Broncos fans of the future. One evening of your life can start the ball rolling. Make the effort to get to the Old Kings Head, King’s Head Yard, 45-49 Borough High Street, London SE1 1NA on Thursday March 20th, at 7.30. Be a part of launching the SupporTers association; be as active as you can be; reach out to friends and your local community; persuade those lapsed Broncos season ticket holders that we are worth the effort. Let's make a difference. STEVE
  14. I am happy to now confirm the first Supporters Association meeting will be held on Thursday March 20th, at 7.30 at the Old Kings Head, King’s Head Yard, 45-49 Borough High Street, London SE1 1NA. I had originally earmarked the Tuesday but this is a Rugby League friendly pub and that Thursday was the nearest available date. There is the added bonus of course that they should be showing the Warrington v Wigan game that night – a good reason to get the business done quickly! There’s a charge for use of the room they have, so a whip round would be appreciated. I hope as many fans interested in the Broncos’ future as possible can make it to this first meeting. The need for the Association seems more and more clear with every passing week as far as I can see.
