We will be there Tim. This year was about stabilising the club at a new venue, we are ready to push on now. Although I don't know if going straight into a league with Telford and Birmingham in would be ideal for us. I do have an alternative structure in mind but won't bore anyone with that.
One way to introduce more fixtures would be the creation of a Midlands Cup competition for tier 4. If it was a knockout cup it could add up to 4 extra fixtures to the season. If clubs wanted a longer season they would have to ensure a good cup run. Could also add another event to the Midlands RL calendar.
We played Telford and Birmingham in second half of the season and, despite being at opposite ends of the table, ran both teams close.
There's actually not that big a difference between any of the teams and, IMO, the big league actually makes it feel like a proper competition, rather than a bit of a summer knockabout for union lads.
