Rob Powell: Insists he wants to win that London's results matter
London Broncos coach Rob Powell has issued a robust defence against the notion it does not matter how the club performs.
The Broncos have endured a miserable campaign on the pitch, winning three of their 20 Stobart Super League games.
London suffered a heavy 44-12 loss to the beleaguered Bradford Bulls on Sunday, leaving them rooted to the foot of the table.
"There might be this perception that it does not matter to London but that is not the case."
Rob Powell Quotes of the week
The three-year licensing system until 2014 means the Broncos cannot be relegated, however, Powell insists he wants to win and that results matter.
"I want to win games and that is why I want to coach the team," Powell told the club's official website.
"There might be this perception that it does not matter to London but that is not the case.
"It is not in my nature to accept losing games and we will be working very hard to put that right over the coming weeks."
Powell is taking the positives from the season, believing the club's younger players have outperformed their senior counterparts.
He reserved praised for Kieran Dixon, who scored twice at Bradford, along with emerging talent Dan Sarginson.
"The pattern through the year for us has been the younger players doing well and outshining the more senior players," he added.
"The positives in our games have often been Kieran, Dan Sarginson and the like and if the senior players had stepped things up we might not have been in this position.
"But it is all about the development of them and the club and they are learning week by week."
