Them stats would suggest not, we as a club have not take full advantage of the dual reg, apart from a certain Elliot Kerr, who was an unknown before he came to Hunslet in 2011, he was superb for us and learnt his trade in the lower leagues before flourishing for both Bradford and Wales.
I think that we need to give it a go and see how it works, it may be a success, it may not be, but we have to try to get the club to be more competitive on the field of play but still remaining within budget and running the club as a community based viable business.
We are never ever going to be more than just another Championship team and that's not me been negative its just the reality of been a Hunslet supporter, i accepted that after 1999, we have to ensure we survive and compete, whilst running the club within its means, we cant afford to do a Bradford, cos we wont get bailed out, we will go bust!
Yes thanks for that BH and all your thoughts.
The proof of the pudding and all that.
But the current aims of the two clubs are not fully clear.
Your stated aim is to have a more competetive team so you can cement a position in the soon to be 14 club Championship and stay out of the "league of death" where (as the great Graham Liles once said of the old third division created by Gary Hetherington - there I have mentioned him again, but I for the record don't think he's a monster, I think he should run the RFL) the club risks crowds so low it will threaten their existence as a pro club.
But what is Leeds stated aim in terms of the tie up???
If it's to give a few young Rhinos Lads championship game time then there is no shared interest?
Is it however part of leeds policy on this to provide players with a view to keeping Hunslet in the Championship so that the level the young Rhinos play at year on year is the best possible level???
