Yes if they were our players or at least on a season long loan, I don't agree with the dual reg system never have and never will.
I have spoken to a number of players and they are not happy either about what is going on. Why should 2 players who need to be kept match fit for ANOTHER team be taking the place at the club of 2 players that have signed contracts with them to play?
Also do you think the players coming give two
f@&£s about what happens in the game/s that he plays in then your very much mistaken. Bad for team morale, bad for the dressing room, bad for the game.
Come on Daz im sure you would have welcomed any International players to play along side you to give you more chance of getting winning pay whether they were on loan for a year or there for just one game?
I agree with you and disagree, Yes it will be harsh on the player or players who are left out for the dual reg players to play, no hiding behind that fact, but its up to Barry to manage that scenario. And its also up to the players to respond in a positive manner, which i think our players will, look at Josh Nathaniel, unlucky to be left out for Jimmy Keinhorst on Sunday, but hes knuckled down and now has the chance to go out against Leigh and play out of his skin and basically say to Baz "F*** Keinhorst, this is my position and i am going to make it my own". To me it can only increase competition for places and give players the motivation to work harder and play better. If anyone of our players knows that a Leeds player could potentially come and replcae them, i know if was me id be saying "Id better start giving 110% here, and prove to Baz we dont need a dual reg in this position".
As for the rest of the players who will be in the 17, i know full well that they will be buzzing at the opportunity to have these players playing along side them, you have to remember 99% of these lads were at the club last season, and only won 2 games all season, that's only twice they received WINNING PAY, Now all of a sudden they are playing along side players who are of a higher quality, giving them a lot better chance of getting WINNING PAY in 2013.
Ask Luke Haigh how he feels today, knowing that he could potentially be packing down with Kylie Leuluai and Richard Moore, your not telling me wont be buzzing at the thought of getting that opportunity?
As for Kylie Leuluai and Richard Moore not giving a t0ss about Hunslet, that may be the case, but i could name hundreds of players over the years who dont give a t0ss about Hunslet or any over club they may play for because its a job and its what they get paid to do, but i bet players like Moore give a t0ss about there careers, and im pretty sure they would rather be at Leeds than Hunslet, so what better way for someone like Moore to prove to Leeds he should be in their 17 to come to Hunslet work his socks off and play out of his skin to prove to Brian Mcdermott that he deserves to be in the Leeds squad and hes better than Hunslet, if that's not motivation to play well and be professional about the job hes paid to do then i dont know what is.
As for dual reg affecting morale, it didn't seem to affect morale Sunday when we put in the best performance ive seen for many a year, only time will tell if it does.
