the game is dying in hull. there isn't much young blood coming through. when young players go to scholarship they lose interest when let go by the pros and don't carry on playing.
west hull get players because they are a decent club that pay. there is a big drinking (and drug) culture in hull, and this is seen as a priority over playing.
Things do not look good for hull amateur rl

There's plenty of kids playing on a Sunday all over Hull, with a lot of quality I might add. Players have always gone to both the Hull clubs when they're young, and yes some of them do pack it in, but it's no different now than it ever was. As far as the drinking and drugs culture in Hull you're on about, there's probably less now than there has been for years. I don't want to start another discussion about it, but having spoken to a few committee members of one or two clubs in Hull, it seems the problem might be summer as opposed to winter.

This year the registrations have been the lowest for 28 years for the mini and junior teams, this has happened since the switch to summer see today's RL express for a statement from the chairman of the Youth league. This can only have an effect on player availability and quality hense the demise, West Hull have been the best at taking players as well getting players to go back to them and one of the only clubs with all age groups as well as a team in the H&D league as well as the Merit

Seen all the Hull Clubs this year

West is Best by a long way, Yes they are paying players EXPENCES only,    but strong rumours that they are now paying expense's to the Under18s  which will mean they will be strong for years to come or until Terry withdraws his support

East Hull  Not enough strength in depth when the Bully Boys are not available particually  at home they are poor

Hull Dockers  Having no A Team (Thought it was a NCL mandate that you had to run an A Team) they will struggle when injuries kick in

Skirlaugh  No go forward   Not since Ralph, Morrod, Kennedy Leighton have they had any forwards to break the line. They think they are better than they are

 

SAID IT BEFORE ON ANOTHER THREAD THAT ALL THREE TEAMS WILL GO DOWN  

 

Myton  Struggling with losing a lot of experience but should just about stay up,   still poor though

 

I know it appears a post of doom & gloom in Hull but you have got to face facts there is not enough talent to spread around 5 teams

Its looking like amateur sport will have a major struggle to keep playing numbers at present/past levels .

Even football is losing players , 100,000 less playing the game on a regular basis than last year , not good .
