London Broncos ditch Harlequins name

Harlequins Rugby League are set to relaunch themselves as London Broncos for next season. The club had previously used the name from 1996 to 1999, when they enjoyed their most successful spell.


The new brand uses elements of the original design, updating the model to reflect the contemporary and premium vision of the club. The home kit is predominantly black with a bright blue trim while the away kit reverses this design with a bright blue strip trimmed with black. The colour scheme is very striking so as to make an impression both on and off the pitch.


Their chairman, David Hughes, is confident they can re-establish themselves as challengers to the game's northern heavyweights after shedding the colours of Harlequins, in which they have become also-rans.


Chairman David Hughes commented: "I am delighted that we are returning to be the London Broncos. It is a name that resonates with success on the pitch and that is what we want to achieve next season.


"I have committed to the club definitely for the next three years during this Super League license period and we will work hard to retain that in three years' time and become a club to be reckoned with both on and off the pitch."


The Broncos, however, will continue to play at the Twickenham Stoop as tenants of Quins for at least one more season.
