London Broncos are committed to remaining a full-time club despite their relegation from the Super League.
Broncos will be playing in the Championship next season after suffering their 20th defeat in a row at the weekend when they were thumped 72-12 by Warrington.
But the club, who host St Helen's tomorrow, are putting plans in place for life in the second tier and are looking to stay full-time as they look to bounce straight back into the top flight.
The playing roster will be completely re-vamped with 23 of the current squad due to leave at the end of the season.
Broncos have already re-signed prop Nick Slyney and recruited two more Australians, Liam Foran and Ray Nasso, as well as a raft of promising youngsters.
Head coach Joey Grima has also strengthened his back room staff with the experienced Andrew Henderson joining as assistant coach from Sheffield Eagles.
Despite the disappointment of relegation Grima remains upbeat about the club’s future and said: "Going back to the Championship and starting over again just reassures that we're here for the long term."
"Given where we are, it's not a bad thing. The planning over the past six to seven weeks, getting in touch with the London-based junior rugby league clubs and having a real interaction with our U19s, shows we're taking little steps.
"It is exciting and it just reassures us we're doing the right thing and that Broncos are going to be here for the long haul."
The match against league leaders St Helens at The Hive kicks off at 3pm.
