London Broncos have failed to win any of their opening 15 games this season and it's likely that they may never register a point during the 2014 Super League season.
So what does this mean for rugby league in the capital?
It may feel like this scenario is all doom and gloom, but when you look at the bigger picture, it could be the best thing for them.
In a saturated sports market in London, the Broncos lose out every time. Why would you want to go and see a team lose time and time again?
But relegation will bring new hope and an ability to build from the ground up.
Gone are the days when championship sides had incredibly low budgets, next year the Broncos will have a decent salary cap figure to pay players.
Keeping quality players may be hard for them, but what will be left will be a great London core of men.
Rugby league, unlike football, is a sport that is relatable to its audience.
And a team like the Broncos has and will always have a great London identity, and with tickets cheaper, we may even see attendances grow due to an increased competitiveness in their matches.
