London's main professional Rugby League team , the London Broncos, have become Harlequins RL and this is there new kit.
Its actually identical to the Union shirt - black stripe down the side and all ... the only difference is the trim on the sleeves is white for Quins RL and grey for Quins RU.Originally posted by wigan_rlfc@Jan 25 2006, 02:44 PM
The black strip down the side makes it look a bit smarter than the Union version. I do think that the colours should have been arranged in a Vee or Chevron pattern rather than Checks to make it identifiable from the union kit and also to give it more of a League twist.

Broncos used to play in quartered shirt though - so it's not that different from how things used to be.
Meh, Chris Warren can't not go over the top! The Broncos have always had a good team, hopefully this scheme will open up some investment for them to expand their influence.Originally posted by MightyQuin@Jan 31 2006, 09:21 PM
Personally I'm not getting a season ticket, as I don't think I'll be able to make enough games to make it worthwhile - my wife works weekends, and I have 2 small kids.
On the whole though, I do think a good number of the union fans will be giving it a chance - they introduced the QuinsRL team at halftime in the Quins fixture at the weekend to a decent reception. I think Chris Warren went a little over the top with all the player introductions, as they stumbled out and stood on the sideline freezing their balls off, but it was all good fun!!
Still a fan of Steel Retchless, Terry Matterson and Peter Gill myself ...
