When the only pro club down south moves to semi-pro status in severe budget saver mode it’s bound to happen. 
 

This all given the fact he and his family are settled in Surrey. 
 

Sad to lose him to them.

Looks like a part-time gig so he has something to do. Might lead to other things in union, I guess, which would be a huge shame.

Really frustrating. He seemed destined for big things, over achieved with the Broncos, was on the GB Lions tour as an assistant, and now we lose him to some team I've never heard of, and I live near that part of  London.

But isn't his new club also part-time?

Part-time at Rosslyn Park is likely to still be pretty well remunerated. They're not exactly poor.

he will be on a lot more money than Mr Mustard, will have a better squad to work with than Mr Mustard, and will probably have more success. So its a no brainer really

However with Danny Ward, even with the squad London have, they would have won the Haven and York games

Far more potential opportunities in Union than there is in League, he’s got his foot in the door. 

Shame he’s not been given an opportunity in the sport here but maybe he didn’t want one and didn’t want to move away from the life he’s built in the south.

They get crowds of 245

Worst mistake Broncos ever made sacking Danny Ward. Just another demonstration of how poorly run the Broncos are. Would love to know how much money senior management at the club are on while running them into the ground.

Like most RU clubs at that level their crowds are irrelevant. They will be backed by one or more directors putting money in. Think some people here would be staggered at the playing budget some RU clubs have in the national leagues.

Any idea if they get central funding too? We’ve just significantly cut the funding for clubs like London Skolars in League One, I’m sure clubs at Rugby Union’s equivalent level  will have far more spending power than them.

Funding outside the top tier has been slashed in RU. I could be wrong but I think Nat L1 clubs in RU only receive travel expenses.

Funnily enough ,Rosslyn Park FC and London Broncos share the same training  field and venue facilities.

Would not be surprised if Ward ends up back coaching the Broncos in 2022 or 2023. Rosslyn Park are more then likely getting promoted this season already,well prior to Wards appointment,no not sure of the need for him now. If Broncos decide to sack Coleman,they won't put the assistant as head coach will they now.Ward is at the front door.

And with that same squad,I think they win the Haven,York games.

Pretty sure Ward wouldn't go back unless there is a change of senior management and a promise of financial backing. Neither of which look likely

We rent them from Rosslyn Park is my understanding.

They are their facilities. I don't think they need to pay anyone to use them.

EDIT

My error. It's Richmond we throw money at for training, isn't it?

Isn’t Richmond where the academy and reserves play?

Jamie Langley,Rob Powell and Ward all left within the last 12 months, and all to the other code.

They seem to have foreseen the potential downward spiral.

     No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

To be honest Coleman is not in the same ball park as ward

People must surely know this

Do feel sorry for Coleman TBH, he is very out of his depth at London, and will be an easy fall guy when DH has had enough of the team losing week on week

If London lose to Dewsbury, then I fear Coleman won't have long beyond that
