Wonder if there is some player apathy creeping in lads dont want to travel and committ, seems to be a problem across lots of clubs these days.

I dont think its down to summer rugby either to be honest just a sign of the times

Good luck in your new adventure but I thing you have got a little confused, you haven't been promoted you have simply been excepted into a different league due to meeting the criteria you have already beat a few top premier teams not to long ago in your successful cup run. the NCL has enjoyed some good success in the national cup 4/5 years ago beat going off recent form you will find the top regionals have took over now

Not many ncl teams entered the national cup in the last couple of years for numerous reasons.
But i think if the top nil teams did enter they would beat the top regional sides nine times out of ten - in my opinion that is.

Siddle are one of the best teams in the NCL and they entered last year and got beat by a regional team, the year before all the NCL teams entered and for two years i think didnt even get a team in the final, no shame in that but you have to give the regional side some credit, either their standards have improved are the NCL standards have dropped

you simply can not dismiss fact

so you kind of lost your argument about one off games and NCL winning nine out of ten games dont you think?

Due to the petty politics in our game siddal also played a league game on the same day as their national cup game last season so no doubt this affected their performances on the day.
You would have to check all through the fixtures just to ascertain how many regional sides were pitted against NCL sides throughout the duration of the competition as it may well be that the NCL teams drew one another in the early rounds.

As i stated in my regional post in my opinion the early NCL teams would win 9 out of ten of these games.
When you look at some of the regional leagues there are only ten teams in their division and they are therefore playing a hell of a lot less than their NCL counterparts.
Also take a look at those regional sides that have stepped up into the NCL havnt bounced through the divisions and into the premier division overnight. Even your own club whom had dominated the regional league that they were in for several yrs only got promotion from division two at the second attempt!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and if i were a betting man my money would go on the NCL team nine times out of ten.

i flew back yesterday, new york is a good place to visit but its to much like London,

at the time you refer to the NCL teams were dominating the national cup, but that was several years ago, are you saying things can not change?
if all teams entered the National cup now i would place my £1 bet i normally reserve for the grand national on one of the regionals winning,

you may have a point on Regionals play fewer games but that isnt there fault, they can only play whats in front of them,
if the ncl scrapped the playoff are exteded the time allowing teams a bit more time to fulfill there games instead of asking amitures to play three games in a week it might of been different.
but to coin a phrase what does it say in the paper, regionals have dominated the cup over recent years, this isnt my opinion its fact,,

couldnt agrre more reference the petty politics,

Yes I agree the Top regional teams don't get the high standard game every weeeeeeeek....hang on, don't the top regional teams all play in the same leagues.
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Thanks for proving my point, Back to the good old days

The NCL havent won the cup since 2008 :lol: and correct me if im wrong the NCL have only won 1 in the last 6 going off these stats?

im from an NCL club as you know and believe it or not im not trying to put our league down but my head isnt in the sand,
all im saying that this current moment in time there is a bettert standard of rugby being played elswhere,, bitter pill to swallow but its true

the odd team raising its game and getting to the final and perhaps winning use to be a good argument, but come on give credit where its due, 1 in 6!!!!

I dont think anybody can deny that the top four of the Pennine League and the top Three from the NWC could have competed at the highest level of the NCL in recent years and rightly or wrongly you could say that the team that wins the cup is the best side in the country But Bradford City have just got to the Capital One cup final (Old League Cup ) beating a few premier league sides on their way but I would not say they where the best football team in the country.

I remember st pats winning the national cup whilst rooted to the foot of the NCL when their was only one division.

Having played and coached in both regional leagues and in the NCL from my experience the intensity and standard of rugby is far better in the NCL without a doubt. But again that's my opinion.
I also know from my own experiences that teams also prioritize the league above cup games especially if your in the promotion or play off race.

As your coach what he would sooner achieve this season:
To win the national cup or the NCL cup or
To secure your first teams premier division status.

I know what his answer will be before you ask him.

If the standards dropping in the NCL why are the regional teams that have entered over the ten years doing so?

Fifty teams in the NCL now - they must be doing something right from an initial concept of ten teams only. Gotta be doing something right.

he would probably choose to secure his place in the Premier, he would also probably of liked to enter a team in the national cup but due to politics
it wouldnt be practical.

when the regionals compete in the national cup i asume they still go all out to win there Division so its exacaly the same for all leagues,
the nartional cup has always been fiercely contested and i feel its unfair to down grade it now just because the regionals have dominated it over the last 6 years.

played in both myself and over all i totally agree the standard is higher in the NCL, no argument there , but it still doesnt change black and white facts,

the top regionals sides CURRENTLY are better than the top NCL sides its there in black and white, i would love to be proven wrong, but what does it say in the paper?

if they played in a different league alltogether and could only compete agaist the premier teams in the cup and they won 5 out the last six, what would you say them?

the only time that all teams can meet and fight it out is the national cup so surly the regionals must have a strong case
