Ex players have wrote in autobiographies that it happens. It likely does, clubs are probably just more efficient at doing it than Des was.

Swinton, Hunslet et al are doing nothing wrong.
The RFL set the rules and some teams chose to to apply them and others didn't.
Unfortunately, someone has to be relegated. I hope it's not us and if we do stay up I will feel for the fans of that relegated club.
But whatever happens tomorrow I'd like to say thanks to all the fans and all the players of every club that have given me some lovely days out this season.

very sensible post. I follow Hunslet and hate D/R for several reasons however I can't fault the players we have had from Leeds. if we didn't pay our coach 40 grand a year we wouldn't need dual reg players.

Good luck tomorrow to the Barrow lads. We need three Cumbrian teams in the Championship. Go get them boys.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

To me this stream shows exactly why there must be promotion and relegation in any sports. It's always very tough for the teams that get relegated or just miss promotion but adds so much excitement to the end of the season. I remember the dogfight between Wakefield and Castleford in the last promotion season of SL  The match between the two produced a bumper gate and Cas were relegated.

 

I desperately hope Barrow win but above all I hope it's a cracking game and the best team on the day wins. Championship or Championship1 I shall have my usual season ticket for 2014.

GOOD LUCK BARROW.

Good luck barrow from a town fan, nowt against other clubs as they have played to the rules of dr whatever anyone's thoughts of what that brings to the integrity of this division. As a Cumbrian, I just want all our 3 teams in the same league.

In reply to "JT" and others I'm still waiting for someone to offer evidence as to how Swinton have "abused" the DR system? Instead of repeating hear say from down the pub give us some actual facts. E.g. Of the 13 that beat Barrow 22-0 eleven were bona fide Lions players, & 2 were DR, young players who have never been Wolves regulars & one of whom was only playing coz our full-back Hawkyard was suspended. Before anyone spouts Morley & Briers, Morley has played once (in the NR Cup) and Briers once, both when recovering from injury. Not ideal I admit, but hardly abuse and an unfair advantage.


Any team who play experienced players from a S/L club are IMO abusing what D/R was set up for I have no problem if a club use a u23 player as he may play several games for your club but an experience player is there to be ready for the S/L club. All championship clubs should have the final decision who they play but it should be to improve the youth set up they should not be used to get a player ready for S/L because they are greedy and want to spent there money on the senior team this is what Swinton and Hunslet have done by playing certain players Keep the D/R system but make it so the championship club has more say and it helps there club not using it to get the S/L player ready and upsetting championship players

Just to finish the reason why I wanted two teams down who abused it is so clubs would realise that it's to benefit S/L and not our league

Just want to echo the thoughts of Paul. I really hope barrow stop up because they have not bowed down to the pressure created by the RFL and linked up with 1 of our so called elite clubs. The link up with a SL club is obviousley within the rules but just because RFL make it right does not mean it is morally the correct thing to do.

It also amuses me how Barrow are still reminded of illegal payments to players under Des's chairmanship. He got caught and the club has paid the price through relegation, I also agree that it has and still goes on in the game. Barrow have risen from the ashes through bloody hard work and I think they deserve all the credit in the world.

Swinton and Hunslet haven't abused the DR system, it just looks to an outsider like their "partner" clubs have abused them!

It's a silly argument about the use of DR players. Where would Barrow have been without loanees Hellewell, Nicholson, Brennan, etc,? Well done Barrow.

Brennans not a loanee he signed a 1 year deal, and theres a difference between loan and dr the biggest one being that loanees train and play with the team they are loaned to, dual reg turn up on the sunday then go back to their parent club. At least by having loan players you know whos turning up that weekend.

One of them is on contract. Then the other two players it's completely different to DR. We don't have potentially a full squad to choose from unlike DR. We have those two players and those two only.
