Not been on here for a while, but I feel I've got to put my opinion over. I'm falling out with the game I just don't get the same excitement on a July Saturday as when 'back in the day' on a November was what it was all about. You've only got to look at the Pennine League it's getting stronger every year since the NCL went to summer, I understand teams as far as Cumbria have applied this season. I'm also getting rumblings that several NCL teams are thinking of joining the Pennine!!
The NWC league was the best comp in the country in winter but look at it now, seems to be more 30-0 results every week. The facts speak for themselves.
WELL DONE THE RFL & the NCL committee for KILLING OUR Beautiful GAME.
Just because people who have enjoyed rugby for 50 years are walking away from our sport
Just because multiple games are being called off
Just because some NCL teams are operating without a reserve side
Just because fewer players are now taking part in our sport,
Just because dozens of 16 to 18 year old teams have folded
Just because playing standards have dropped
Just because teams can not turn the same team out twice
Stop moaning and take your family down to your rugby club, enjoy the BBQ , you can go on holiday in December, just after your mate gets married.
And don't forget , we have got duel registration to look forward to,
O yes I forgotten, take your complaining elsewhere, this is now a summer NCL forum now
