Hits the nail on the head for me. Dual Reg is all about saving money for SL clubs.

The DR system as always been to favour the SL clubs. It's just a slower and sly way to get champ clubs to become feeder clubs. It's about saving the SL clubs money but like swinton have found out recently it goes a lot deeper than that.

Wouldn't SL clubs save more money by reducing their full-time squad? The majority of academy and fringe players would be better off building a career outside RL in case they don't make the grade. Only a small percentage make the grade in Super League and it would be down to the clubs to spot the very best and reward them with full-time contracts. With the money saved they could run a reserve side on part-time wages!

Putting this in a nutshell in the end the scheme is a disaster all way round. If a SL club wants a player returning from injury some game time and the Championship club turn him down then he sits about until someone else gets injured and then he is thrown in at the deep end with no game time and is rusty. Alternatively if the Championship club accepts the SL player then a Championship player is sat on the side lines with no game time. The reintroduction of the SL second teams is a must for RL to survive otherwise the whole game will lose players by the bucketful. I said second team rather than under 23's as there are players over 23 who are not getting any playtime. This scheme was introduced by SL against RL wished to save money I reckon the time is ripe for a rethink.
