Would it be a good idea to go back to local leagues? play county cups and national cup, and have intercity games? this would cut down on costs dramatically, give players more players chance to play in rep games, and keep some element of national games

Players chose to play for clubs in the NCL for a reason, there is already plenty of provision for those who don't want to play in national competition. I acknowledge what you are saying about costs but looking to address that is more realistic that just abandoning a long established and ultra competitive competition.

 No way!!! Going back to regional leagues is a stupid idea, every club should want to play at the highest level. If League goes back local then then Union teams will be overrun with converts.

It wouldn't be that bad in Hull ref, as half the prem sides are from there. ;)

I think the hull league would be by far the strongest, followed by a Leigh league

Playing regional is being spoken about more and more, it doesn't mean you will get a better standard of game by sitting on a coach a few hours before you play a game, the switch to summer and the lack of support the switch has received may just force some clubs hands, only time will tell, a lot of clubs are struggling financially so it wouldn't come as a shock if clubs start to drop out,

 I noted the wink. :)  The Hull league would be smallish but I would get fed up of watching Miners v Easts in the Leigh league. :no:

Come on once a ref, I'm sure you can use your imagination and think of a few more teams you could play in the north west!!
The concept of the NCL was good at the biigining now it's grown do you not think the talented players are spread out to much?

It was the OP who suggested a Leigh League. Not a NW league (that already exists)

I may be wrong  but i'm sure the league is called the NATIONAL conference league,if you don't want to be in it sod off back to your regional leagues,at least then we won't have to listen to your whingeing when you make your 1 or 2 trips to cumbria a season.I am also sure there are plenty of forward thinking,ambitious clubs waiting to take your place.

Ah then that is a bit better, you could call it the Wiggin League then because Leigh is in Wigan. :tongue:

I think it could work if set up properly. national opposition will still be catered for with the cups, so players would be able to test themselves. inter town games used to be very successful, so these would be good to have back. I think the best part would be the reduced costs, at the minute the game has very little money. I think it could work. another idea would be to have regional conferences with a national playofff
