I guess we'll find out when they actually play a game. Unless the whole system changes before then, of course.
Which is very possible given how funding is going to be utilised/allocated by the Performance Department for future development of the 14+ talent pool/elite player pathway.
25% of the whole funding from Sport England is at the disposal of the Performance Department, so results matter in terms of productive initiatives as that is what keeps that funding coming in, which has already been reduced down to 4.5 million for The Talent Pathway!!!
So its going to come down to results, which initiatives are producing the players that are most likely to progress into and beyond the elite talent pool/pathway at 14+.
