All that shows is that Wakefield reserves are worse than Leeds reserves. if that's the limit of the club;'s ambition, so be it, but it's depressing.


What a load of rubbish.

Well said and I suggest there's loads of integrity in what the clubs are doing.

The lowest ebb for me was a few seasons back when Skolars came up on a Monday night and stuck 50 odd up us before a few hundred when our matchday photographer got sent off? Then later didn't Workington put 50 past us before 300?

The gang of four and their fans are insisting we go back to that for the sake of "integrity"


Well, if the talent in London is as great as you think it is and the Skolars get a very possible promotion this year, they might well comne back to SLS stadium next year as Broncos reserves and stuff Leeds reserves for the A team championship trophy

1. All for the good of Leeds.

2. All decent players on the Hunslet books as DR players will be siphoned off to Leeds whenever Leeds need them and I would bet that if Hunslet uncover a Hardacre on their own, they will put pressure on Hunslet and hoover him up as well.

3. The only ones staying on the South side of the river for any length of time will be the no hopers.

4. Why would Hunslet sign any propsects, they can just rely on Leeds doing it for them. Hubslet, shorn of DR players will be even worse than they were last season.


1. Staying in the Championship is for the good of Hunslet.

2. Of course Leeds will sign the professional players, with Eatons blessing.

3. Hunslet will sign the best of those who don't make pro but are good semi pros

Barry and his team will be active with Leeds encouraging all the local junior sides and scouting the best lads

None of your business anyway, why not concentrate on your own clubs tie up?

We have had some very dark days over the last few years, talking of integrity, i traveled with 52 fellow supporters 6 hours on a coach to Port Talbot in 2009 to watch my club play a team called Celtic Crusaders, that day Hunslet team were pretty much made up of local amateurs and cast offs from other local clubs, that day we cam up against a team which consisted of several Australians, we got beat by 80 points, we stood there and watched our team get hammered, then set off back on our 6 hour journey to Leeds. Now forgive me but where was the integrity of the sport that day? where was the championship clubs up in arms that day? where was all the concern for the history of Hunslet that day? there wasn't any because it was just another dubbing for poor Hunslet, no one gave two hoots, so forgive me now for not giving two hoots now that my club may once be benefiting from a rule that allows us to at least compete and win rugby league matches.

I hope they do, I want RL to expand successfully in London, I want Leeds as a city to have such a great RL scene it can support two clubs. You need to stop being mean spirited and sort your own club out.

Times change and we can't get back to two tiers in which clubs in the second tier can build and get promotion and stay up and all that stuff.

Those days are gone. We need a strong SL for the game to survive, the Championship has gone this way because needs must.

It can't live on your dreams.

I'm coming round to this more and more (keighley is a big help).

As you'll know there never really was an official north of the river and south of the river divide between the clubs, Hunslet's directors for many years wanted to be accepted as a "Leeds" club hence they don the University's colours.

There can't be two Leeds clubs in SL so it's hardly revolutionary and lacks integrity for the clubs to come together and run one side in SL and one in CC.

The bottom line seems to be people don't want you doing anything for your club that may affect their club.

We stand 22nd. in the Rugby League, when were we last that high??

You know nothing about me. What you might care to consider however is that I live 4,000 miles from the UK and my financial resources are not unlimited.

However I will be spending a small fortune to attend the World Cup games this Autumn. That's as worthwhile and positive as i can manage.

Don't spend all the money from your charm school prioze at once, will you?

What was the deal with the chocolate and white strip, adopted in the 60's?

You stand 22nd in the Rugby League, Hardly a worthy achievment though seeing as it has been achieved on the back of leeds players.

I think the last time you were this high or higher was when you won the grand Final and promotion to SL but were denied due to a promise reneging council . Had that happened there would have been rwo SL clubs in Leeds despite your certainties as to the impossibility of it.

Keighley came late to the DR party and have the pick of the best of a small Castleford squad. I think they are doomed to relegation this season. They may as well have preserved their independence and gone down as a non A team.

I think relegation, coupled with the lack of interest in a Castleford A team in a town 30 miles away could well see another bankruptcy and the extinction of the club. No doubt Hetherington and his accolytes will be happy then.

Fair enough, I'll retain the view the integrity of RL competitions have been ruined for many years by rich men trying to outspend each other and by mercenary players travelling across the world to get at that money.

Oddly enough as Barry Eaton says and Blackpool Hawk will agree, the Hunslet-Leeds set up is about developing young players for the game, many of them from Leeds and who will stock two Leeds clubs.

I don't see any lack of integrity there, Caddick, Williams, Hetherington, Eaton, McDermott and Blackpool Hawk aren't throwing personal money about or dumping good Leeds lads for foreigners.

In fact IMHO there's shedloads of integrity in the arrangement.....


Kylie Leuluai, Richard moore, (Chris Bridge & Paul Wood at Swinton) can't be classed as young players can they?

I have nothing against Hunslet as a club, infact i thought their supporters we're great when they visited Featherstone. I just feel that certain super league teams are taking the mick when chosing what players to make available, surely it would be more beneficial to all concerned to have an age limit if a pathway is the ultimate goal, it's not like Hunslet are going to sign Leuluai at any point is it?

Of the nine partnered Championship clubs, I'd be really interested to know whether the other seven are leaning more towards the the recent proposals of the independent clubs or those of Hunslet and Swinton. Maybe the fans could give their views.

Would help if the proposals were emailed to us to look at, we're still waiting!
