From what I have picked up on other forums, this weekend there is a Mid Season Review meeting - hence no games - between the RFL and representatives from all the six teams in the NCL South. I believe it is two fold, 1. to discuss how the season is going and what can be done to make it better and 2. talk to any other teams that may have shown an interest in wanting to join next season and expand the league. I personally would think that the big downer against expanding this league is that, from what I have been told and has already been discussed before, two clubs regularly play dual registered players, (all within the rules) who are from a far higher level than most of the other teams in the league. Would it not help this league grow if dual reg players were not allowed at all, (or a maximum of two brought in) and clubs stood and fell on their own development.
Also will the outcome of the meeting be made known to the fans? If anyone from any of the clubs that post on here attends the meeting, would they be allowed to say on here what was discussed?
I hope this league continues and expands, but to do that you have to give new clubs thinking about joining up a reasonable crack of the whip, and unless they are a club with 'connections' to get dual reg players of their own, I can't see it happening - hope I'm wrong.
