I'd love to see him play in Championship but not against Raiders.

I note Morley was here on Sunday.

So who wins in the long run?
Briers gets a run out on his road to fitness... WIN
Warrington get a player acclimatised to the speed of the game......Win
Whitehaven get to face a real star of the game....LOSE
Swinton get a star player that could win them the game....WIN ( short term) but they also pee off their coach that is told who he must play...LOSE....the other Swinton players have to get used to a different style of play for one week...LOSE...
A very disgruntled player loses his place in the team( loss of wages) ...Lose , EVERY other Swinton Player knows that there is a better player waiting to boot him out of the team if someone at another club decides they want him dropped to make way for their star.

We have definitely gone down the right route. Even if we were to be relegated we would still be in a position to decide our own future.

North Wales Crusaders have taken the same decision as us and are everyone's favourite for promotion. One of the reasons they have taken the no DR option is that in talks with Saints they were told they had to replace Clive Griffiths with a Saint Helen's nominee!

The loan system works. It actually helps both clubs.

I'm sure I got shot down by a Swinton fan on the match thread for saying this would happen. It's a joke. So sad that a team who have won 3 challenge cups have been turned into an reserve side.

Isn't Frankie Mariano on a months loan at Fev, and not dual reg? Swinton are being made to look stupid by these rules, the quicker they are changed the better.

Swinton should be renamed the borrowers, they borrow players and borrow a ground.

complete joke to be fair.

On the subject of Briers, i remember the rumours during the Des Johnson golden era where he was linked to us.

Swinton like many clubs are taking advantage of the rule change and there is nothing wrong with that..time will tell if it has been the right decision?

 

Like people keep saying they have no choice once they enter the agreement but on the plus side lower wages for higher class players.

u cant blame swinton for whats happening but now its started there not going to be able to stop it well done rfl u really are ruining the game at super league level and championship level.if the championship clubs are going to be helping bring young players through and get 1st team players  match fit for super league should they not be getting a share of the sky money as the clubs above dont have to worry about reserve teams anymore.

Taken from the RFL website

“Dual Registration” is the system whereby a Super League Player continues to be registered to and be eligible to play for his current Super League Club and is also registered to play for a Championships Club.
The purpose of this Rule is to provide an enhanced Player development pathway for young Super League Players who are not thought to be ready to make the step up to Super League first team on a permanent basis but for whom first team match experience in the Championships is likely to be beneficial for their development. It is intended to provide additional flexibility for Clubs to make arrangements that suit the Player’s development needs whilst protecting both the playing squad requirements of the Clubs concerned and the integrity of both competitions.

So I suppose that Briers and Morley are 'young Super League Players who are not thought to be ready to make the step up to Super League first team on a permanent basis'. Perhaps I've got this wrong Phil.

One point not raised.

If Briers had been playing for Swinton against Barrow last week what benefits would Barrow have received gatewise?

I don't like it but we're stuck with it.
