Rooster please let us know which proposals were changed as other changes were agreed by DG and DR (in principle) but nothing has been changed

Please see extracts from community minutes

"Mr Hunt asked whether the maximum of three dual registered players per community club was inclusive of Under 18s players. It was agreed that the allowance was for three players in total.
Mr Moran asked whether this would form part of competition rules. Mr Hicks clarified that this ruling would be reflected in the professional game’s Operational Rules; therefore leagues would be asked to include this within their competition rules.
The Board agreed unanimously that the recommendation on an upper limit of 3 players be taken forward for further discussion with clubs, with a view to implementing this for the 2014 season"

The rules were implemented despite opposition, to me an even split only RFL leagues voted yes

"Hull Open Age, Pennine League, Yorkshire Combination League Cumbria, NWC Youth 8-12, Hull Youth, had indicated that they would not sign the rules. BARLA had also voted against the rules at their General Meeting.
There were concerns that some members may wish to publicly challenge the Operational Rules, despite their acceptance by the vast majority of the rest of the Community Game.
The Board acknowledged the risks involved but felt it must demonstrate strong leadership on behalf of the majority of Community Game and recommend to the RFL Board that the draft Operational Rules be adopted. There was unanimous support for this proposal"

The NCL Clubs will decide if we accept Dual Registration, so there will be a vote.


Could be wrong but I think the OR have been accepted en bloc and you cant pick and choose the bits you like .
MIND you superleague can do what they want so why not the NCL ?

As we keep saying below from the CB October minutes does this include the 2 mentioned by Rooster

But we will show strength and pass them anyway in the current format

OPERATIONAL RULES
The Board was asked to agree and approve one set of Operational Rules to cover all leagues and competitions operating at tiers 4 to 6 of the RFL competition structure.
Further to the meeting of the Board in April 2013, extensive consultation had now taken place with all RFL member and affiliated Leagues to establish any further changes required to the Rules. 12 formal submissions had been made to the RFL and 22 amendments had been listed within the paper circulated to the Board, together with the final version of the Operational Rules.

But the majority and I think the RFL leagues are backing everything as it is not players

Please look at the 2013 websites
All leagues seemed to play for about 3 months (RU off season?)

Midlands RL
1 league of 10 played 12 games
Merit league 6 teams played an average of 4 games each
U16 league with 4 teams only one completed 6 fixtures

LondonRL
Premier 6 teams played 10 games
SE League 6 teams played 10 games
Junior RL 6 teams played 10 games
Merit League 15 teams played an average of less than 3 games

South West RL
WEP 6 teams played 10 games
SWP 6 teams played 10 games

Scottish RL
Possible mistake only 3 teams listed but fixtures for 4 did one drop out?
But the Champs Aberdeen are in the Challenge cup

So all the men's leagues including Merit less than 60 teams
RFL votes 4
Pennine League 100 teams
No vote

So we have a part time sport playing about 30% of the year in these areas giving the RFL the votes to do what they want, we have been trying in London for 30 years, a lot of the schools play but this does not seem to reflect in participation, are we now a national sport?

Another vote to the pot!

So all the fuss why has this not gone out, it would have saved a lot of issues if parts have been changed, we have been going on since the October minutes were published are BARLA and the other leagues who did not sign aware

I assume this is a wind up?

Are you suggesting that some clubs are knowingly/purposefully operating with coaches at OA level that are not level 2 qualified?

Or that they do not have appropriately qualified medical personell available on match days?

First post and you make rather provocative statements inferring what you have, hmmm.

What I am saying is what I wrote , your interpretation is your choice !         By the way , could you tell me what the appropriate medical qualification for match day personnel is ?
