Not sure I'd agree with that view, to be honest. It seems to me to suggest that they are entirely comfortable with how DR is being used. Contrary to the view that using Wood, Mccarthy, Leuluai, Moore, Gardner etc... is against the spirit of the DR system and not what it was intended for, the fact the the RFL has been lobbying UKBA to allow quota players to be involved suggests to me that this is exactly what those who designed and implemented it wanted and envisaged.
I'd agree as well.
This sounds like the RFL knew how it woudl pan out.
There has not been a single word about playing Wood and Leuluai that may be against the spirit of the arrangements, but going public to try and get UKBA regulations onside says a lot to me.
