Looking at the four teams in the manchester met area outside super league.Could the four pool together now with dual reg and create a team in super league while keeping there own identity in the lower league. Im talking of course about oldham, rochale, swinton and leigh. Looking at the idea of playing games in and around the area useing spotlands, boundary park , leigh sports village and maybe the reebox stadium.So for example .
manchester v
wigan @ reebox
st helens @ reebox
warrington @ leigh
widnes @ leigh
hull kr @ spotlands
hull fc @ oldham
wakefield @ spotlands
castleford @ oldham
huddersfield @ spotlands
bradford @ oldham
leeds @ reebox
salford @ leigh
london @ oldham
catalan @ spotland

No.

All four of those teams could play in SL on their own. None of them bar Swinton, is a Manchester club. I dont refer to Leigh as being in Gtr Manchester.

For me it is either stay standalone with achance of SL or give up RL

Leigh might one day play in SL again but you are kidding if you think that Rochdale, Oldham or Swinton ever will.
