In Topic: RFL Chief to meet clubs over kids format row

My post crossed with Lord Charles' comprehensive answer above - sorry!

I still struggle to understand what the difference between having 5 or 7 players has in regard to player evolvement, just rotate the players on an equal basis.

A period where the "big kid" takes a breather will also promote the skills and confidence of the smaller kids who haven't had much of the ball.

Can anybody explain why the proposal to give more kids more playing time and presumably more action on a smaller scale game is a bad thing? What are the main objections?

I'd be interested to hear why the NW Counties object to the new proposals as well.

I can see many positives with the U7's playing 5 aside games. The only downside I see and it is a relatively minor one, is that more coaches/volunteers may be needed on match days due to officiate the increased number of games.

I've genuinely never known a set of fans as miserable and happy to turn any positive into a negative! I've never yet heard anybody belittle an Aussie or Kiwi series win due to the amount of injuries that Eng/GB have.

Spot on Dave, if the Aussies or Kiwis are not at full strength that's their problem.

If England win because the Kiwis don't take us seriously and have multiple players withdraw their services, who cares? The record books will show a "W" against England, that's good enough for me.

Also a winning England team on national TV can only be good for the sport. A lot of people who watch will be oblivious to the players NZ may have missing anyway.

Sounds like you've managed your team better than I have G. I was a bit trade happy before Origin, most of which were either unnecessary or were poor choices (Chris Sandow anyone :()

Overall I'm happy with how I'm going in my first season of the game and have learnt a lot of things I will do differently next year. All the best for the remaining 3 games, unless you play me next week of course! ;)
