Think it's fair to say he doesn't have any Buzz. Clearly not one for the future but hope he can bring something to the party. Bit of a worry that we have signed 2, 30 somethings with little or no quality experience from Aussie.


I think the key here is experience. I don’t know him from a hole in the wall but Smithers hits the nail on the head when he identifies the need for a player in this position. Horseman and Leyland, the latter more so because of the lengthy injuries the former has suffered, have come on but I’ve come away with the impression the club thought they were world beaters and we could build our squad around them. I don’t see that YET but the may well get there. That in my view was one of the reasons we were undercooked and underwhelming at the start of last season. In terms of age I think that plays into our hands as basically RL players don’t hang around for long so as long as they have it this season it’s fine. Him being fit and settling quickly into the side is key. This feels a step up to me from trawling around for someone to fill this crucial position for 2 weeks. So basically we’ll done to the board. Now the question of why guys from Australia are willing to decamp to London for a year to take on the opportunities of one of the top 10 cities in the world but seemingly not guys from Batley is a more vexing one. Having said that our recruitment from the North turned out badly last season, Foster saw out his contract but he didn’t hang around either, so you can’t blame them too much.

Wiki says he is 6' 1"" & 15st. Not the smallest half back we've ever had. Probably not going to nip through a small gap but if he retains some of his Fijian heritage, he will certainly be big enough to run over the opposition.

Love Rugby League seem to be going through the Championship every day/couple of days with a How X are shaping up for 2023. They’re going to have fun with our one- bit on the shortish side - same as last year. Hmm Is that the sound of Broncos recruitment machinery spluttering into life. May have been my imagination.

Cake said we had offers out on 5 players at WC. Anyone expecting more than this one to come through ?

Looking a bit grim isn’t it. Every day passes there is news of a cook island players or whatever coming to a championship side and it’s announced and they are off to Bradford or some such. Even people from the Cook Islands have heard how much pints cost in London. Wait until they hear what the average rent is.

Black Friday announcements anyone?
Anyway. If you CURRENTLY visit http://www.Londonbroncosrl.com and click the NEXT MATCH headline this is where you end up.... http://backthebroncos.com/latest-news/

Not sure, but that looks like Thai script?

Not sure how much money is changing hands in terms of the "PARTNERSHIP" with Key and Sparrow, but whatver it is, WE ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH!

Yeah, it's Thai.

Yeah, a Wordpress site. Keep it patched or get hacked immediately..

Being charitable... Did we use and link out to the backthebroncos.com domain ever? And did K&E wrongly think that using javascript on a container was a good idea for a link? And then forget where that link was pointing? And some nefarious other subsequently bought that domain?

This seems very, very unlikely.

More likely, hacked.

For any nerds (or Key and Eagle) reading this, take a look at the source code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var et_link_options_data = [{"class":"et_pb_section_1","url":"http:\/\/backthebroncos.com\/latest-news\/","target":"_self"},{"class":"et_pb_section_3","url":"http:\/\/backthebroncos.com\/latest-news\/","target":"_self"},{"class":"et_pb_section_5","url":"http:\/\/backthebroncos.com\/latest-news\/","target":"_self"},{"class":"et_pb_section_7","url":"","target":"_blank"},{"class":"et_pb_section_9","url":"http:\/\/backthebroncos.com\/our-sponsors-2\/","target":"_self"}];
</script>


Anyone wants an explanation of what that garbage means, PM me: I don't want to bore people here (any more than usual).
