If Fev and Fax think they are strong enough without linking with a SL club then that's fair enough as they have proved themselves over the past few years. However, for clubs like Barrow, Keighley and yes, even, Leigh, I think they could be burying their heads in the sand over this.
Keighley have a 33 man squad so they might get by if injuries hit them but Barrow with 26 and Leigh with 23 players may struggle. Their only course of action would be to loan players as they can't get DR unless they are linked to a SL club and which SL club is going to loan players if they are in a partnership with the opposition.

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
