It's been announced today that Castleford are to link up with Keighley and Keighley are looking for 2 or 3 Cas players for this weekends match with Haven.

There's not many left free now. Leigh are thinking of using one or two players from Wigan.

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.

Thats Keighley bricking it when they see Wood, Moore and Leuluai being quoted in squads. Its made them think, they don't want to be relegated. They had a squad that was skewed towards being filled by lads from the Keighley area. All that could go out of the window. Their young lads could get p!s$ed off and move away from the game or back to amateur. We are a week into the season and the situation has the potential to be worse than the most pessimistic posters ever typed on totalrl.com

Especially as Ade Gardner is 30 years old!!!!!!! Obviously his coach doesn't agree with his age limit proposal.

If you mean me then I suggest you read all my posts on this subject.Have said all along its wrong ,just because haven are using it doesn't change that.As for being forced to take them ,Otto if that's the case then what happened last week?.Haven were offered 4 players this week 2 will train with them.So just for the record Dave yes this system is wrong no matter who uses it. is that clear enough for you.Keith the age limit proposal and limiting the amount of players you can register on DR(like we had last year).Would stop most of this stupid bending of the rules that is going on .

I really do hope that I am wrong when I say this but this will end up as a massive disaster for teams below Super League level if it carries on for too long.

Paul Wood, Ade Gardner, the Rhinos props playing in our league plus many others has to be so wrong.

I don't know how Charlo and Woods are going to be able to look their home grown players in the eye when they have to tell them that they aren't playing and therefore picking up much needed pay packets to make way for a player that has no feeling for a team from our county

I am really worried for our sport, long term. We now have the drugs thing going on in Aus. Won't be long before the Northern hemisphere is dragged in to this.

Go Cumbria!

If I was Workington I would play Kavanagh and Davies from Widnes.They are upset not to be picked in the squad, and will be hungry to perform.Halfbacks and forwards seem to be our strong postions.Would not mind Callum Philips though.

I fully agree......it's a recipe for disaster.

most fans you speak to feel the same.The only people who dont are the RFL and they are suprised that established first team players are been used on DR,like that ws never going to happen was it!!!!!!

I guess the RFL might argue it will raise the level of RL in the championship and give the opportunity to see known SL players which will increase the fan base ? I think Town look to be handling it well though and it will be all about rotation and handling injury problems, but I'd still strengthen the bench on sunday with a Widnes second rower.
