Apologies if I came across as a bit sharp Nev V Dawn. If they have turned a blind eye they probably don't have much choice and it would seem the sensible thing given the current circumstances.
You seem not to want to answer my last question to you Gar, below are a few pointers that may suggest why;
NCL Constitution rule 7.1
The National Conference League shall operate and apply strictly a Minimum Standards criterion to which all clubs in membership shall be obliged to comply.
From Appendix 1 - minimum standards criteria:
Operate with a minimum of two open age essentially linked to a youth and junior section – including a team at the highest level and a mini mod structure
Operational rule 16.2
The failure to comply with these Rules may result in the expulsion or non-admission of a Club from the NCL Competition or such other penalty as deemed appropriate by the NCL Management in its discretion. The exercise of such discretion shall be proportionate to the seriousness of non- compliance by that Club
So you're suggesting that the NCL surrender the integrity of their league by as you suggest, "Turning a blind eye given the present circumstances"
