So how's the salary cap going to work so that it doesn't compromise the integrity of the competition? Featherstone have to spread theirs over a full squad while Dewsbury have half a dozen SL players who will be exempt leaving them with a large chunk of money to top up their squad with high quality players. How can it be a fair competition? All for the greater good I suppose.


How does this differ from the dual-reg system?

Still the same limits on numbers but linked to only one SL club. Dewsbury are still recruiting 24 players as they did last season so I fail to see how this is unfair.

The problem is, after the 5 green clubs have joined forces with their stated feeder clubs, what happens to all the rest of the Cc and CC1 clubs, who are unable to receive such largesse. So now in addition to the great divide of SL and the rest we will have SL, feeder clubs and the rest.

I think this whole thing is an ill thought out solution to sorting out the SL's reserve player expenses with little thought given to the ramifications for the rest of the CCs or the wider implications.

Why for instance don't they take the 10 surplus players from the 5 green SL clubs, 50 players, and divvy them out equally between all the CC,CC1 clubs. Why are they creating a three tier hierarchy with this limited feeder club scheme.?

They will simply use the dual-reg system, as before.

One minute Dewsbury are being accused of being naive, the next of being unfair because other clubs haven't entered similar arrangements. This demonstrates to me the simplistic parochial view of so many, unwilling to see the wider, possibly more sinister, picture.

Because the game is only about Super League, the rest (Including amateurs) are being shunted into a position where they may as well be livestock waiting to be slaughted.

Glen Morrison will not want to be chopping and changing his team every week. We have had a link with Bradford for a few years and playing wise has not amounted to much. We had Brad Singleton and Liam Hood from Leeds for a good spell last season and no one complained. If we have an injury problem then it might help with particular positions, but Morrison will have a squad of 24Rams players to keep happy. Expect they will be his priority and one thing is for sure, Francis Cummins will not be picking the Rams side in any shape or form.
