You've got way too many things open on your phone chief - no wonder your battery's going flat.

Yes, it is a very big deal to have a scoop in a paper with a target audience bigger than Scotland, Wales and Ireland combined...

Getting in the Evening Standard is big news is it not?

 

It would be quite a meta story though.

The sponsorship potential must be immense.

It has been years since I bothered picking up a copy, even now it is free, but they were never all that keen on acknowledging the existence of RL. Things may have changed since, but the important thing is that thousands of people take a copy at the tube/train station on their way home.

As someone who works in London, having a bigger presence (which isn’t hard considering currently there is no presence) for the Broncos and for Super League and Rugby League as a whole. 

If this can lead to a more regular presence, whether it’s match reports or regular columns from someone at Broncos, it would be huge for the club and the game.

Hearing it’s Iain Thornley.

What a coup!

Hmmmm somehow I don't think Iain falls under the category of international superstar.

i feel the same way about the metro.

Which i believe is the uk's biggest paper.

Something to aim to be in.

The Wakefield Express is pretty big.  It's a nightmare trying to turn the pages walking to work on a windy day.

There used to be, many many years ago, a weekly column by (I think) Jamie Peacock in the Metro (including the London edition, so not just a Northern regional option). Long gone now, but I used to look forward to it.

So is the news that they're going to be in the news?!

It will probably be the biggest coverage SL will get this season circulation wise

Given the state of the British sports media, it is news in itself. It shouldn't be, but that's how things are.

Now let's wait and see who the signing is.

When I spent a few weeks in London back in 2010, I was pleasantly surprised by the level of coverage rugby league got in the free press you'd read on the tube. There were always 1-2 Super League articles. If that's disappeared in the years since, then this is already one clear example of the benefits the London Broncos bring to the competition.
