Description:
See Harlequin F.C. for the sister rugby union club
Harlequins Rugby League is a professional rugby league football club based in London, England, which plays in the Super League. Their current name is often shortened to Harlequins RL or simply to Quins. The club has also previously been known by its original name, Fulham, London Crusaders and then as London Broncos (their name until the end of the 2005 season.)

The club play at The Stoop, which is the home of, and owned by, Harlequins Rugby Union club. The home shirt design is similar to the union club's famous multi-coloured quartered jersey (light blue, magenta, chocolate, French grey, black & green). It does, however, incorporate a Rugby League twist with the quarters reversed in a mirror image to the union club. The away shirt for the 2011 season comprises pink and white quarters, to promote awareness of the Cancer Research UK charity.
