A famous quote on re organisation seems to sum up this DR mess perfectly. The SL teams and the championship teams were stabilising and coalessing into functioning teams with a recognisable player development structure and suddenly a new situation came up, i.e. SL teams couldn't afford player developement so, rather than address it within the existing structure of SL they "reorganised", ditching developement junior teams and ruining the championships in the process. "An illusion of progress" indeed. p
It's up to you if you want to just make out RFL/SLE haven't a clue, you'll be joining fellow detractors on here.
Others may wish to remind you SL started out as a concept of putting all the resources the game had into one aim - an Elite league pulling a big TV contract.
Resistance came from fans and clubs, but the RFL/SLE didn't give up and now we see what resources Hunslet have, directly contributing heavily to the progress of Leeds.
As usual Hetherington leads this real progress.
