I agree Terry, and it amazes me how we can see such commitment, passion, skill and fitness levels from what are essentially part time players considering some of the SL games Ive watched on Sky this year the NRC final was by far more entertaining, I maybe slightly bias being a Fax fan but I would not have thought many neutrals would argue against the product on show.
The oly thing that has put a shadow over the days events for me is the news in the LE of an overhaul of Champ clubs and making them affiliated with a SL club whereby the SL club can farm out any fringe forst teams who are not getting a game to their Champ cousins.
I totally disagree with this idea in that it is trying to make the champ clubs feeder clubs for the SL sides by stealth rather than just coming out and saying it. Whats wrong with the current dual reg policy that seems to work fine to plug any gaps in team sheets? If they want to do that at Champ 1 level I can see the merits but at Champ level that is further diluting any attempts of clubs to develop their own talent and keep hold of them it also undermines the strength of the comp highlighted by yesterdays showing.
