Capacity is 3,000 (1,200 seated) according to wiki.

Stand is 800 at best & was told 2400 capacity (at least that was what CEO at Esher said when I was there Wednesday !)

Yes we need to be flexable for London, but we also should be insisting on maintaining Standards. Playing at Esher in front of at best a couple of thousand is simply making the SL Brand a laughing stock. You cant tell me the ONLY or Best option was Esher RUFC Ground. Right now London seem to be getting worse and worse and I cant see the future being a good one. A number of factors have contributed to this and much of it it self inflicted. But where does the London Broncos go from here? As soon as Hughes goes then its good bye London Broncos.

Are you going to persist with JTBC?

Just wondering...

I think its hilarious, I can't stop laughing every time he posts. Its original every time he does it.

Don't you think so?

Thought not.

Gonna go to this tonight. Looking forward to going on the road and having a few ales.

Good way to start a long lazy weekend!

Your're probably disappointed at yet another blowout score then.

Never mind, at least Leeds and Bradford had a blowout 18-18 draw.

School teams get better crowds than that.

London has failed, allowed to wither on the Vine.

It has been going bad for years with nothing happening other than a slow death.

For the stats gurus, is this the lowest crowd in the history of Super League?

Workington.v.London 1996 1400........

Halifax.v.London 2003 1276......

Gateshead.v.Hull 1999 1580.....

Lower than that?

I said intially I thought it was farcical that the match wasnt postponed and my view certainly hasnt changed.

I also believe its embarassing to be playing Super League at such a small venue and yes it does the image of the

game little good.

That said the pitch was in very good nick and the Esher Club were pretty good hosts as it were on the night.

As regards the game its difficult to call to an extent as watched the first half in the stand and the second at pitch side

opposite on the Cats 20, and your overview really wasnt that great.

Id say London edged the first half with Catalan largely dominatiing the second.

Overall I thought it was a pretty solid London performance to follow the previous two,but as ever sloppy defending

let in a few soft tries along with a gifted intercept in our own 20. Not sure who it was but may have been Witt. (he has

previous). Rather thought Cats were brought down to our level in the first period as they looked a little flat with no spark

whatsover. Different story in the second half with as they stepped up a gear without needing to excell to any great extent.

Encouraging though that we stayed with them and competed from start to finish,

Not sure Craig Gower was fit as he looked largely anonymous.

ANother nice try by Kieron from what I could see of of it.

A defeat,but Ive seen a lot worse.

Was t,alking to an Esher Club member at the end and to one of there staff members earlier in the evening who were claiming

that we will be there again next friday for the Bulls fixture.

Surely not as our CEO claimed they wanted the game played at Esher to keep the momentum going,but thats lost now

isnt it ? But then again this is London and just like he stadia last night we are not Super League in so many ways.

Just hope they can keep it respectable monday at Warrington.

Well they need to start raising there attendances to meet the 2500 criteria for a liscence. I wonder if that will be dropped if they don't meet it

quite a lot may be "dropped" come 2015.
