I'm sure the coaching staff and the club are well aware of it. Although being aware of it and being able to do anything about it are two different things.

well if G T picks players who he knows are not committed to the cause (D R ) maybe it's time for him to go. however i would expect his hands will be tied as he makes no secret of his dissliking of dual reg.

bottem line is people will watch a bunch of tryers but not somebody going through the motions

scrap DR now. if SL don't want there youngsters, make them free agents,and if they make the grade they can pay a transfer fee.i think that used to happen in the good old days before sky ruined our great game.

Its a Bingo term. You filled my 'RL Meltdown' card in one fell post.

 

 

Sky didn't ruin our great game, they made it infinitely better. The good old days wern't actually that good at all, especially for York. Dual-Registration needs looking at I agree, but it doesn't necessarily need scrapping. And York have one of the best Head Coaches they have had in living memory, he certainly does not need to go.

 

May I suggest a nice cup of tea and a sit down?

Got to agree with Deano,that GT has to got to sit down with the Hull coach and ask him which players want to come to the Knights and prove not just to us that  we are here to keep fringe players fit but want to play at Hull at Super League level,because there not performing at Super League grade!!

Surely there is at least one good prop out there who would sign for us?

Ask another question -how do the Eagles attract, and then keep, players of the quality of Togagae, Yere and Taulapapa ? How is it done ? Could the Knights do it ?.


Easy enough. Easier than you think. Yes.

This seasons squad was recruited & therefore costed based on the fact that we were always going to

have dual reg players to supplement it, so it leaves GT & Rammo with the thankless task of not only

trying to get the best out of the York lads, but also lads who don't even appear at every training session

& get paid by another club.

 

At the end of the day this is the route the club took, maybe if no dual reg & therefore more 'York players'

fully signed on, we might not have been able to afford the likes of Brown, Scott, Nicholson etc, etc..

Should we suggest that Gary instigates an interrogation procedure at Thursday training - perhaps a blindfold and a dripping tap on the players head ? Or cocktail sticks under the fingernails ? :(

i don't think gary should go, but what i am trying to say is he has lambasted the dl players at least twice, with the exception of briscoe, yet still plays them which suggests to me that his hands are tied

To the best of my knowledge, Deano, that's not so.
As I understand it, it is Gary's call and he certainly confirmed that in interview after Sunday's game but put yourself in his shoes - pick the DR, they dont perform and ( heaven forbid ) we get relegated or don't pick the DR players and ( heaven forbid ) we get relegated. Could be a no-win scenario. Very, very awkward. We all have our own opinions about DR but I think GT has most of the DR players and their relative commitment weighed up now..
