The deal is good for London, however, why couldn't they keep the Bronco's tag and they're awesome kit?

That's me going to one less game a season. I refuse to have anything to do with this, this is selling out for league as far as I'm concerned.

I hope they go bust!

This is a big blow to league. Needing to combine with a Rugby club due to Money.

100 years vs 10 years of being professional.

St Helens is right in saying this is a Sellout to League.

League really have to look at how the game is run at administration level. How can you just miss the playoffs and have money problems?

But League has had an ongoing Administration issue since the Super League war.

Very disappointing if your a League fan, especially when League has 3 teams influenced by Rugby.
Which three. [/b]
Leeds
The New French Team (UTC run by Perpignan me thinks, i read this in an article when the team was created. I will try find the article) and now the Broncos.

and don't they get the fans of the league team to go to the union and vice versa when the other team isn't playing or is in the off season.
They would like to think so, but inevitably it doesn't work like that. Leeds Rhinos are very successful and play in front of large crowds, whereas the Tykes appear to be generally ingored. Certainly, anyone I've heard coming back from an away match against Leeds union side has talked of how poor the ground and atmosphere are.

I don't think that Leeds Rugby League get much benifit at all from the Leeds Tykes.
As far as I know UTC are being backed by Super League, not any Union factors.
I'll give you the Bronco's. However, when you think about it, the Bronco's are the larger team of the 2. Top 6 Super League side, whereas Harlequins are to be playing second division Rugby this year.

Quins don't have the £3m debt though.

And neither do London, now.

That happened not long after the start of this Season.
