London Broncos star Chris Melling believes the club's rebranding can be a launchpad for Super League success.

The club officially returned to its former name today after a five-season spell as Harlequins RL.

Head coach Rob Powell's men disappointed last season, but Melling believes the new beginning and a host of new faces can inspire a turnaround.

"We underperformed last year and the whole season was a bit of a disappointment," he said.

"The players have been back in training for a couple of days and there is a real buzz about the place.

"We had quite a few loan players last year which was difficult to deal with, but with a slightly bigger and better quality squad we feel we can move forward.

"With the bits and pieces that have happened behind the scenes, the players believe we are heading in the right direction."
