How times change, I remember 10 years ago when BDH joined the summer league, and Andy Harland give a speech at the NCL meeting praising it and how much profit they had made.

The then Chairman-Terry Parle- asked clubs to consider switching, but it was overwhelmingly turned down.

If clubs were honest with themselves, how many have been close to have been in a similar situation as BDH. I have seen clubs travelling short this season.

It's true all clubs have tales of going places with 12 and 13 men but I agree with Celtic rooster the younger players coming through have different mentality and lack commitment to the cause.

What you think will happen to Fev Lions and Crosfields?

They will have to reapply to the league and the other clubs will either vote them in or out off the NCL at the AGM

Yes all clubs go through similar situations usually when they have not had many under 18s coming through think it will happen a lot more in the coming seasons if we remain with clubs under18s playing in the summer or if  there in not a change in the academy set up.

West hull openly admitt to paying players, why Mayfield say they don't is beyond me. Warriors got kicked out of ncl for 5 years yet the core of the team stayed! Says something about the team spirit they have n truly do play for they mates n badge, we came back better! How many teams can say they have done that! If you don't have pride for your mates n club then  wots the point in being amateur!

Get real - Mayfield dont admit to paying players because they dont do it!

 

Look at the team and name who you think is getting paid - they are mostly young lads with a precious connection to the club (played there as a junior) that have tried their arm elsewhere and come back to enjoy their rugby - there are no superstars who would even command getting paid

 

I also know that a player left Mayfield this season to go and get paid elsewhere so it looks like your barking up the wrong tree here

I played against an Aussie and a couple Fijians that definitely wasn't born in Rochdale!!

Mayfield talent for attracting players from different country's is outstanding to say they don't pay there players 😁😁😁
