Rugby league side London Broncos have sealed a move back to their west London roots after striking a deal to play at Ealing RFC , Get West London understands.

The move has been rumoured amongst the Broncos fanbase for some weeks now, but the Kingstone Press Championship side now appear to have now sealed a deal to play at the rugby union side's Vallis Way ground.

Although the Broncos have played in all parts of the capital in their 35-year history, they stared out nine miles down the road from Ealing at Fulham FC in 1980.

They have since played at Crystal Palace, Chiswick Polytechnic, Hendon FC, Wealdstone FC, Brentford FC, Chelsea FC, Barnet Copthall, Charlton Athletic FC and Harlequins RFC.

Their most recent home was Barnet FC's The Hive stadium in Edgware, but relations between the two clubs are said to have soured, leading to the Broncos' move back west.

The Broncos are hoping for a return to the Super League following relegation last year, but are currently mid-table in the Championship.
