Whilst the club is pleased that some off-field issues have been sorted by the RFL and its Super League clubs, Tony Rea is purely focused on team performance:
?I wouldn?t say it hasn?t been an issue that we?ve had to deal with as players and coaching staff, but it certainly has not been our focus,? said Rea.
He added: ?We?ve worked well as a unit since last week and all we are looking for is to make continued progress across the season, and to continue to enjoy our football as London Broncos players and staff.?
It?s pleasing to see that we are a welcome, and important, part of the game.?
CEO Nic Cartwright commented:
?It?s was a productive meeting and all the cards were laid on the table. We have been open and honest with the RFL from the outset and I would like to thank them (RFL) and the clubs for their support.?
We have a very capable team on the pitch, our community and marketing staff do an exceptional job, and our core supporter base is as resilient as any in the world.?
We all know what we need to achieve to be a successful business, and we will continue to make progress in these areas.?
Sunday presents the next opportunity for our players, and then Saturday week presents a wonderful challenge for our marketing team. The visit of Wigan to Griffin Park will provide all with a forum to voice support for rugby league in the capital.?
London v Bradford will be web-cast live courtesy of BBC London: http://www.bbc.co.uk/london/sport/rugby/broncos.shtml
