Harlequins coach Latham Tawhai said:

"When you look at the personnel we had missing to come up with a performance like that is huge.

It says a lot about what we are doing as a club to produce that with just one overseas player".

Isn't the whole team Australian backpackers???

What's going on???

I think we should be told......

Nearly Half the squad from London?

It cannot be true.

Will Sharp is from Bradford. I went to Ampleforth with him on Bradford Schools training camp. Well actually I think he's from somewhere in Africa by birth.

But went to Quins from South London Storm which is why he is considered a product of London RL.

And all their coaching staff bar one are British. Puts some more "established" clubs to shame.

This data provided by the Parksider shows that Harlequins are the most indigenously based club in Super League at this time. They are the moral pride of Super League.

And to think that the fans of some northern clubs that are stuffed full of Antipodeans want to drop Quins from Super League!

I believe they may be. A lot of them are from some placed called "Northern England" which I believe is in Queensland! Those Cockanees can't pull the wool over my eyes...

BLIP!

You are correct. Parksider started the thread and raised the question of AUssie backpackers sarcastically.

It was the mighty Benny who provided the stats. I was so impressed with the data that I forgot who provided it.

My apologies to Benny.

Apology accepted, and I shall thenceforth be known as 'the mighty Benny' :D

Will Sharp is now from both Northern England and London RL!

If these English boys can put together a lot more wins like that, and Wakefield, Castleford and Bradford lose most of their remaining games, then Quins will be in the running for the playoffs.

It now seems that Brian McDermott is not going to Bradford. At least last night showed that he has some talented youth to work with and help develop in London.

I want them to move to sonewhere in the south where they get more than pathetic 3000ish crowds to matches, but where they still provide a pathway to SL for London players. I'm far from the only person to believe that Harlequins RL has been a huge failure as an experiment, doesn't mean I want a north only SL. Somewhere like Oxford would be preferable, if they do stay in London then East London where they'd be the biggest rugby club is the best bet

When London rugby union clubs were all folding or close to it, 2 dropped out and 3 left London and have had far more success outside London than they ever had in lettig Harlequins RU be the pro rugby club for London or at least West London. Competing head to head in the same ground and with the same name as the only other tip flight rugby club is not attracting many fan at all, burI know you want SL crowd averages down to 3000 just so we can say we have teams in places like London and Paris and about 6 French sides, 4 in places RL is small and where the talent is this far just enough for 1 side, hopefully 2 by 2015.

Your trolling is getting boring now just go back to supporting Huddersfield and moderate your expansionism to at most Parksider's level (though you don't want to expand within England outside of London)

Luton or Oxford its the way forward you know .........................YAWN

I was responding to ParisSutroll bringing it up.

But even if their entire squad were from London it would be for nothing if they folded due to crowds of 3000

Does anybody know how many of those London originated players have come from West London - i.e. Quins current environs.

I seem to remember that LMS and Clubb and a few others were from South East London and joined the club when it was based out of Charlton (although I happily stand corrected on the facts). I still feel, from a development point of view, that East/South East/South London would be more fertile breeding grounds - RU is not as ingrained in these areas and we would have a better shout of getting the best youngsters.

None-the-less - great work from all at Quins.

Indded I agree with you it would be better for development to dedicate more time/resources/man-power to Sth East, East, North East and South London, currently there isn't any copmmunity coaching going on in Essex or Kent or East/Sth East London but as I've pointed out on differen tthread, over half the teams playing in London Junior League finals are from Essex , Kent and Sth East London, Brentwood Elvers, Hainault Bulldogs, Medway Dragons and Greenwich Admirals, none of whom get coached by Quins or RFL community satff, entirely by volunteers, great job done by all concerend.

Excellent. So it looks like they're developing wherever they're based - but possibly only where they're based.

I realise that we can't have a second London club (yet) but it would be nice for there to be development all over the capital.
