Shouldn't super league clubs be aloud to enter there reserves/U23's into the championships? like they do in Spanish soccer.

That would put an end to the current dual reg s**te.

It would give sl clubs the ability to get the players match fit for sl, and it would up the standard of the championships also,

Surely this is a better option than the current one.

Is this possible?

No they shouldn't and, anyway, that's not what they want. They don't want to run a 17 man reserve team, they want seven or eight reserves who can play somewhere else when they're not wanted.

dont you think that that is a sad state of affairs when this has to happen? do sl clubs run reserve/U23 teams any more? they did last year didnt they? apologies for being sad on the other thread by the way, i didnt mean to come across that way. :D :lol:

More cost efficient for SL clubs the current way. That's all that matters at the end of the day.

I've often thought it would be beneficial to allow Super League clubs to run Championship feeder clubs in development areas.

It'd cost more for SL clubs to do this and it'd kill off the clubs who play in the Champ/Champ1 as there'd be fewer players for them to recruit and less places in the comp.
