  1. It isn't really a one size fits all thing, as some clubs don't pay out the salary cap ….. for Toronto, an increased salary cap and ability to recruit the best players is a driver, whereas for a London, I would argue their priority would be 'hands off' rules for their academy products and ability to pay them outside the cap and some recognition of London weighting.
  2. Remember the game v Catalans at The Stoop when he broke down the middle, no player within 20m of him and he literally dropped the ball !
  3. At London …. outgoing a lot, incoming hopefully a few !!! The notion we will be straight back up is ill founded, we will struggle to have a cohesive team by the start of next season.
  4. Because a strong London Broncos is good for the game, as, to a lesser extent a strong London Skolars. BTW you need to modify your signature and proper reflect your junior and minis teams.
  5. I think this is a gross assumption on your behalf. It is conceivable that Wardy has taken the position of standing by the players who won the MPG and more importantly having faith in their ability to compete. Bear in mind (and I stand to be corrected) we only recruited Abdull, Yates, Fozzard, Smith, Mason and Richards (and more latterly Krasniqi and Lamb) …… all of them northern and one Aussie. We offloaded Spencer and Evans and few fringe players and then Sammut darted. I think we've done rather well all things considered. I think these wholesale changes were inevitable and I wouldn't be surprised if a few others haven't been offered a contract for next year or at best a reserve grade contract. #COYB
  6. I think this is one of the problems with the current system. It leave clubs like us vulnerable at point in the year. That said I want us to stay up, regardless. If rumours are true Yates and Williams off to Salford along with Kear. Given their depth in backs, I am puzzled what Williams and Kear will add. Walker and possibly Pitts to Wakefield and Abdull to KR. Then again, if either of these clubs are relegated, I assume all bets are off ? Williams, Kear, Pitts and Walker have given the Broncos OUTSTANDING service over the last few years. Abdull and Yates have been sensational this year. I am certain they will give their all to keep us in the SL. Our recruitment has started. Several players committing for 2 more years and add to that Aston and Egodu so I am sure Wardy has all paths covered. Hopefully a good game on Sunday.
  7. That was hilarious ! I am sure he'll be a happy bunny now though
  8. 1992 GB v Australia, Carlton Park, Melbourne (amazing game but the support was bonkers) 1999 Broncos v Cas, CC semi (one word, Steele) 2007 St Albans v Coventry, Harry Jepson Final (reward for a lot of hard work) 2013 England v NZ, WC semi (great game, result aside and son was mascot walking out with Super Bennie 1) 2019 Broncos v Saints part 1 (drop goal, felt like doing an Erica Roe)
  9. Don't agree. Having watched pretty much every game home and away this season the glaring issue is direct go forward. Using outside backs to make ground only takes you so far. We need a Scott Taylor or Alex Walmesley type player.
  10. Good signing I am sure BUT the area we lack is go forward. We need strengthening here as a priority.
  11. Its not really a gift, look at the lines on the pitch, separated by 10 metres. Even you could gauge the consistency of the refereeing based on that absolute guideline.
  12. I give you the shortest 10 ever, BUT we won and thats enough for me
  13. Saints were somewhat disjointed, especially with Paulo at stand off. But they did a reasonable job. Broncos had slightly too much for them. It was an odd game. As for the referee being a Bronco, laughable, he had red vee all over him. LMS was immense, wish he was still with us.
  14. Look at the Saints 19, its not that bad really ! Look at Wigan on Thursday, they mixed in a lot of youth, albeit for different reasons, and looked head and shoulders better than the oppo. If Broncos go into this game like the last 3, we are in for a drubbing, regardless of youth.
  15. I'll be there, as its only 1 1/2hr each way by train! School night so son wont be.
  16. Care ? Have you not felt the passion of those faithful fans who have so wanted to be in SL for years. That's caring. The big clubs have lots of fairweather fans, we don't.
  17. So you've hit the nail on the head. The suggestion no one cares is utter rubbish. I have been a ST holder for years and a Thursday night on the M25 for me sounds bonkers, but I'll give it a shot.
  18. We know you aren't as you drone on about it incessantly.
  19. Not having a pop IM as I know hard it is and how hard you guys work, but to take the strength of a clubs juniors based on the spin of a web site ..... going 16s and not 15s and 17s is a short sighted by the LJL Board. But lets be honest you aren't the only club to be struggling for juniors in London as the 50-0 and 24-0 will testify.
  20. I suggest you take what the website says with a pinch of salt. Your teams under 16 turned up to Saint Albans at the weekend with seven players having already defaulted one game and won by default in another. I know everybody is trying hard in London junior league but let’s get the facts straight.
  21. Walker aside, every one of them currently nowhere near good enough.
