[quote name="Nev V Dawn" post="2748323" timestamp="1374043744"]It's quite simple Fiddler, the players are signed on professional contracts (contracted players) and the rules of the amateur games don't allow them in the amateur game. Cake and eating it not allowed.
Ex players (non contracted players) returning to the amateur game - the rules do allow that. Smell the coffee while you're tasting the cake[/quot
Then don, t moan about a shortage of players then, as that is also wanting your cake and eating it Some of these players on pay as you play only with very little chance of getting another club. Do you want them just stood on your touchline or back playing. Or are you happy with being used as cannon fodder when they feel like it by the pros.
Permits went on years ago. Dual reg should be a complete no no, and I believe a lot of teams may refuse to play against them if it goes the way the likes of swinton and warrington have abused it
Wouldn't your idea have championship clubs running round signing even more players on pay as you play contracts who they really can't afford but sign them anyway just in case they blossom at a later date.
These will be the players who they will be farming back to the amateur clubs and this wouldn't solve the shortage of players because all that's happening is the players who would have played with a amateur club will still be playing with a amateur club but as a dual reg player, where the problem will be is below the first teams where players will get ###### off.
On the same note I've noticed a few winter teams being stacked with NCL players (opposite to what was happening before the switch) I don't think this is healthy either and will eventually have the same affect on the winter side unless the players decide to stop and see the winter season out.
