Should short term Dual Registrations be allowed in order to cover the loss of a player due to suspension?
Chase does it again so C@S sign a Warrington stand-off for a month.

The Warrington lad (O'Brien) has signed on loan. The minimum time a player can spend on loan is 1 month. This as not changed and is different to D/R.

For "Short term Dual Registrations" read Short Term Loans. My point was bringing in a replacement from another club to cover the absence of a player due to suspension.

Yes, of course. Nobody complained before the dual reg issue came up and it's been happening for a lot of years.

If you don't allow teams to strengthen temporary weaknesses - whether due to injury or suspension - you're back to the "integrity of the competition" issue again. "Cleckhuddersfax only won the Championship because they beat Heckwykethorpe when they had two star players out injured"

Which is exactly what opponents of DR keep trotting out.

I can remember Rovers getting relegated from NL1 in 2005 when they had to beat Doncaster on the last day of the season to have any chance of staying up. Half the Doncaster side were loan players from Super League Widnes, who were facing relegation from SL and wanted Donny to win the NL1 Grand Final because they hadn't applied for Super League, and if they had won it, Widnes would have been reprieved.
We need safeguards against this type of thing happening again. For a start, I would make a rule whereby DR or loan players can only be registered for one set of play-offs, either SL or Championship!

To be fair Steve, that year Donny could have played their rsserves and wed still have struggled to get what we needed.

Cummins Out.

Well, I didn't say half of that. <_<

I agree - nobody should be registered after a certain date. We used to have a rule like that - last Thursday in March or summat.
