A 'London' postcode? I'm sorry, but if that isn't a marketing reason I don't know what one is. Frankly I think most people in the wasteland that constitutes the rest of the country would think that TW was a London postcode too. And I knew about the amateur side, no reason they couldn't have adopted a different name was there? There's a Hornets over this way, but Sudbury Wasps or Wasps Amateurs were possible names.
As to a different type of supporter, I think that may have been true in the past. But much as I dislike Quins they have done a fantastic job in building their supporter base, although I agree there is still, inevitably, an element of their old 'City' types in there. I remember going to see them once when there were, literally, more away supporters than home.
