That answers the question, with 12 men they still came runners up in what has to be the most stable division in amateur rugby league and with players now available after a winter holiday they could be in with a better shout in our fabulous winter season which your lot left because of the shortage of players then made a come back into winter rugby (why when summer is so good beats me) then back to summer under the guidance of your ex-boy and Co.

 

The reason we left winter in the first place was nothing to do with a shortage of players (which I would be very happy to know how you thought we were short of players!) it was due to the fact the NL3 when it was first introduced was a great concept which has put teams like Hemel onto the path to where they are now.  Being entered into the northern rail cup for example seeing how teams coped we had a great trip to Hull KR. The progression to the professional ranks were supposed to be there after 3 years, but due to standards dropping and the main teams challenging were ourselves, Bramley and Warrington Wizards standards dropped, with teams dropping out and joining, so we rejoined the NCL for quality of rugby not because of the season. It wasnt a choice between winter and summer it was a choice of quality of rugby which has proved to be the case back in the NCL regardless of summer/winter/spring/autumn whatever spin you want to put on it.
