The Pennine League in particular seems to be going from strength to strength from both a playing and admin point of view despite the weather . Many NCL players having taken up with winter teams and done well and, having made new mates, may be reluctant to return to struggling teams scratching around for players every week.
Think the top couple of divisions in the NCL should do ok despite the reduced quality of the game but some of the lower divisions will be pretty ordinary and disrupted and nowhere near the standard of the top divisions in winter who are up there with the best in the NCL.
Think also the lack of activity on here, apart from the usual suspects is indicative of a lack of enthusiasm for the NCL and probably RL admin in general in particular the way the RFL behave and the way the game has been split and separated at both professional/semi professional and amateur levels .
The game is in a mess but fails to admit its failing or even consider addressing them.
