I am not a massive fan of summer rugby myself however i believe in the democratic process and the NCL clubs voted for it unanimously so here weare.
As a NCL coach i will just get on with it and do the best i can given that other interests family matters and holidays will interfere with what is an amateur sport.
Make the best of what we have got is what i say cause its the same for each n every NCL club/team. There will always be something else in the summer for us all to do, perhaps if the NCL and the RFL gave the players clubs and officials some form of financial incentive things might just be a little different from a playing, coaching and club perspective.
A lot went on in the back ground prior to the vote,
just one thing that springs to mind, following a two hour presentation on the benifits of playing in summer one of the members asked the pannel is anyone going to talk to us about the disavantages of moving to summer, unbelievably the answer that came back was NO we cant think of any disadvantages,
the last qeustion on a servey that was carried out was, if we move to summer would you stop playing,
not to mention all the phone calls that went on, also why was it not a secret vote,
