If there's a next level.
It's hard for the Skolars as I believe the Southern Prem is an 'open league'. Last year when St Albans were in Southern Prem we played Skolars twice. First time we played their 'normal' side and won very comfortably, second time we played them the first team didn't have a game that weekend and they played eight full first teamers and won. I think its a question of damned if you do and damned if you don't. If you are Skolars and have a couple of players coming back from injury/lay offs etc, then the A team is where you play them, and no probs with that, but if you put first teamers into your A team to win what should be your A teams games, at the expense of your A team players, then thats not on. After this seasons run of wins (only lost one game I believe) I wonder if the the Skolars A team might just consider a step up to whatever the next level might be in 2013.

The NCL wouldn't take an A team.
There is always a next level.

RFL's way of abusing the amateur game, please take note De Capo, this is what your letting yourself into.
I'm not anti Skolars or pro Glos, but I was told that the Skolars A team that travelled to play Glos had 5 first team players in their squad of 16. Surely if this is a proper Skolars reserve/A team, they should be playing in a higher league, this years NCL3 for example, or if they stay in the Southern RLC where all the other clubs are completely amateur, then they should be as well. If Skolars win the HJ final with first teamers in their squad, surely it will take a bit of the shine off their victory.
Any Skolars fans out there want to add anything, as I said, I was' told' this, so it could be wrong.
