All thanks to the d/r system in my opinion, people dont kno how much unrest its caused within the team
That's a problem that could yet grow, in light of the changes afoot with the SL Academy system - on which I firmly agree with the views of Daryl Powell and Mark Aston - i.e. its all about the top flight teams cutting costs, insodoing restricting opportunities for young players and gravitating the Championship to be nothing more than a set of feeder teams.
Involves an major increase in the limits for Dual Registered players from next season, further erroding the motivation for Championship clubs with ambition to develop players of their own.
Definitely not a good thing for the overall health of RL, we ought to be trying to get more young players into the game, not less.
I think the big mistake at Swinton with dual registered players for 2012 was that they were all concentrated in one area of the side. The aim for 2013 ought to be a better spread across the different positions.
