Luke Dorn reckons Harlequins Rugby League can this season go one step further than the last London team to reach the Super League play-offs.
Dorn was part of the London Broncos side who made the end of season lottery in 2005 in their last campaign before becoming Quins RL, but were knocked our by Bradford Bulls straight away.
However, Dorn reckons the current Quins side, who went second in the table with a 27-16 win at St Helens on Friday night, have the potential to emulate them.
He said: “That Broncos side was pretty much the polar opposite of this Quins one – it had so much attacking potential, whereas we are now built on a solid defence.
“It was a team of great individuals, but it was pretty disjointed. We play more as a team now and are far more disciplined. The club has definitely changed for the better.”
It was Dorn, who was named in the Super League Team of the Month, who opened the scoring at St Helens, before Tony Clubb, Karl Pryce and Nick Kouparitsas followed him over the try-line.
And Luke Gale, who was named Super League Player of the Month, put in a 100 per cent shift with the boot, successfully kicking four conversions and a drop goal.
Dorn added: “Galey has always had the potential to be a great player, and we are starting to see him fulfill that potential now. He will be a great half-back for England one day.”
Quins visit the only team above them in Super League, Warrington Wolves, this Sunday.
