For rugby league to move forward and expand its catchment area, a central governing body is required.
The RFL are a professional body, we adhere to the match-play laws from junior through to senior level which are approved by the RFL.
From what I can see, the operation of the amateur leagues is still being left to their own governing bodies.
What is the problem?
We have a central governing body and there are few problems on delivery.
Try comparing with a franchise system . The 'product ' owner authorizes delivery of that product to people with a vested interest who can in fact deliver better in their own areas. than the ' owners ' .
Hence effectively the NCL deliver Tier 3 , and the Pennine League the winter game
