Shame about Hendo's departure but can't say as I'm surprised when the opportunity to join a SL club has come along that he's taken it, what he's done at London has clearly not gone unnoticed.
As for us we probably will appoint internally, DH's reputation will put too many serious candidates off.
AH will be very difficult to replace.Club gets the replacement wrong and it'll be next step on the way to C1, sadly.






Well f**k my hat, I didn't know that!

Come all without, come all within, we're London Broncos not the H********s!

Hendo came into the club as assistant coach and in no time at all, Joey had cleared off and the head coaches job was his, albeit, Brian Noble was bought in as a consultant to help out.
Langley and Ward I am sure can continue where Hendo has left off.

Good luck to Hendo for what is a promotion he did well for us and he and his family deserve the break. He has not lied or back stabbed the chance was offered after reporting he was happy in London and he took it as any of us would. If he had not been approached with this chance I doubt he would have moved on.

Not knocking hendo for his decision, and good luck to the fella, really nice bloke and not to bad at his job.
But surely after saying in and his family were settled and happy in london with time left on his contract surely we should be lambasting him for telling us porkies or is that only reserved for others????

So assume we are all going to lambast hendo for going against his word?


To be fair to Henderson, the headline to that piece looks like it was plucked from the air by a lazy sub-editor as none of the quotes attributed to him say anything like that.

Thanks.....pedantry is a sure fire sign that you've little of substance in the way of argument.

Yep....loads of kids in a RL area play RL. What I asked was how Leigh with there 135+ year head start compare to Toronto in terms of trying to develop or attract players to the game. What you've posted is nothing more than an announcement that:
Quote:The starting point will be establishing a Category 3 Academy and Reserve Grade for 2018.

...and a fluffy PR story about getting kids to stop bullying other kids and getting ex servicemen to games and other activities that any community based club should be doing.

Again, with 138 years to 1 year, how much better is the Leigh development program than the Toronto one?Surely with all thse kids playing RL in the area, they could produce their own Centre rather than shopping in the NRL






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I will describe for you!
Leigh have a youth system, Toronto don't, is that simple enough description.

Trying to spread the game and attract athletic young men to the sport locally......as with London, you can't just pull quality RL players out of thin air year 1.....but they will get there eventually.
Leigh have has 138 years........
