London Broncos coach Tony Rea is optimistic over the club's future having signed a two-year contract.
The Australian initially returned as caretaker boss but what was so impressed by the positive change during his six-year absence that he opted to sign a longer-term deal.
Rea said: "This club can be everything. I love what it can be and what it will be.
"It is about establishing something that matters, something that people know about and that has a presence and an identity. The club has that but it is a bit under the radar at the moment. Something will happen and then it will be huge.
"It has shown its resilience and toughness. We will get there at some point and when we get there it will be so exciting.
"It is close. It feels really close. My focus is really on the team and to make sure they can smell that and know what they are about. The rewards will come for the people who have been so persistent with this place."
