London Broncos still hope for late rescue deal

London Broncos could be saved from administration after talks over their future reached a "positive stage".

The troubled Super League club had announced their intention to appoint administrators if a deal could not be struck to safeguard their future.

There was a deadline of today but due to the potential closeness of an agreement, the club will now have an additional 10 business days to work on a rescue package with interested parties.
