a view from a salford fan taken from RLfans..

That is a wonderful piece of news, Oldham is still a hotbed of RL and we can only really gain from something like this. Does make you wonder on the logic though of forging these relationships but then causing a mass release of youngsters, surely to have kept the system that was in place last season and then selected random youngsters could go to feeder clubs to help them through injuries or to see if the kids are tough enough for fully fledged grown up rugby. Someone like Marriott would surely have been better kept on the books and loaned to Oldham for a season rather than letting him go.


still can't see any benefits for us!!

apparently its going to be announced on tuesday that we're going to be "working closely" with salford......


Work closely seems slightly different to be being a feeder club to me. We have worked closely with Leeds Rhinos before but not been a feeder club to them. Thinks it a case of wait and see, but personally, I'd still like to see us go it on our own.

"Work closely" is a PR phrase for feeder club.
I'm not so sure how these SL/CL relationships are going to work because I can see a conflict of interests.
One thing is for certain,out of the raffle for SL clubs we missed out on the bottles of champagne and ended up with the tin of roses.
Wonder if we might have been better off with Widnes?
