Harlequins RL will be known as the London Broncos for the start of next season.

Harlequins RL will revert to their former guise of London Broncos for the start of next season, according to reports.

After six years under the name of Quins, club chairman David Hughes is expected to confirm the announcement in November.

"Ever since the chairman told me a name change was possible, Broncos was always the most likely," said BBC London 94.9 rugby league reporter Ian Ramsdale. "It was 99% confirmed by the end of the season and I understand the remaining issues have been resolved.

"The idea of a name change has been around for over a year.

"With David Hughes's memories of the old Broncos team, only a sponsored name was a real alternative and no suitable deal was found."

A new team logo and playing kit will accompany the new brand.
