I agree about the loan proposal for fringe SL players unlikely to figure in their first team . They could always be called back in emergencies . Gives a bit of continuity , and means things aren't ad hoc week to week .

yeah thats going to play in the mind of the championship club,it can take a few games to get your sharpness back and playing one game every 4 or 5 weeks like hulme is, isnt going to do him any good either. sending players on loan is probably the best bet for both parties, the likes of briscoe and hulme could have easily come on 3 month loans then town would probably play them more often if there part of our set up.briscoe just seems very unlucky with playing, he was supposed to play vs keighley and it was called off, then i would of expected us to call him up last sunday when brett was ill but he had a testimonial game.

totally agree with the loan structure , it is far more beneficial to all parties than DR. Only issue is the money and the travelling/expenses cost?? I know the younger lads are on buttons but thats as far as SL is concerned it does make a difference in the championship and you have to watch the cost base. I know that champ clubs who play DR players do have to pay a figure and if you already have a full playing squad this is obviously and extra cost. However DR lads dont get appearance or win bonus money like contracted players so I suppose one offsets the other. Its a diffcult one because you rightly expect players coming in to a good job and expectations are high becasue they are attached to a SL club . Realisitically to come into a team after being out for four/five weeks and possibly having only a one hour training session with the team is really not ideal and I cant see how this arrangement fully benefits all parties . There is so much more on offer - I believe Widnes have been unlucky with injuries this season so thats potentially why the arrangement has worked quite as well but Workington have looked after there own and long may that continue. Hulme has just signed a new two year deal with Widnes, and I know he considered two other offers from champs sides which would ultimatley give him more game time,.but he decided to stay with the hope that he could go out on loan and prove to Betts what he can do.
