Rumour control has it that not one of the clubs invited to attend this meeting re joining this league next season actually attended.  Did any poster on here attend, and if so any chance of an update.

I have an inkling that DR isn't going to be much of a problem going forward

As in, quietly dropped? This may bring cheers and happiness all round, except I still think it leaves a problem or two for the structure of rugby league south of Sheffield.

No one went from the Eastern Rhinos, because while it may have been a rest day for the Conference South teams and they were in the North discussing the South ! the teams most likely to join such as London Premier sides had a full fixture list

What are Rhinos thoughts for next year Cooky?

If St. Albans came back to London Premier and one other team that would be a great 8 team comp?

Unlikely given the plans of the RFL. We're likely to see more dual reg, not less - it's just the rules that may change (E.G club of origin, limited amount of players etc).

Dual reg is one of my major gripes with the sport at the moment. I really don't like its effect on competition integrity and on how players view the loyalty to the club whose shirt they are pulling on. 

 

Perhaps I'm old fashioned.

Ditto. We could also take a leaf out of football's book and ban players from playing for more than two clubs in a system. The Gareth O'Brien situation this year is beyond a joke. Ditto the Matt Smith situation a few years ago.
