    NCL Season

    HGG it doesn’t surprise me. Maybe they’re waiting for you to return it.

    If this is true, I can see a few more clubs withdrawing from the league due to the high cost of coach travel. I noticed last year that a few clubs traveled by cars to our venue and I’m not talking about local derbies.

    I may be wrong, but I thought the RFL was in charge after the switch to summer rugby. All results are sent to them and if you are appealing against a suspension don’t they deal with it. Whereas in the past it was BARLA
  5. The final score was 10-0 and it was 2000. We had a home draw against Castleford Tigers in round 4 but the game was switched because the local football club wanted too much money to stage the tie. Lost 64-10,Cas made us very welcome and after deductions an interim cheque was handed over. Despite the loss a good day was had by all.

    Has a new sponsor been announced for the Challenge Cup yet?

    Some clubs don’t enter now like Cumbria 1 said because of the expense. Not all clubs in division three get invited, only the promoted ones.

    New NCL Teams

    Trevor Hunt said in last weeks League Express that ten clubs were showing an interest in applying to join the NCL. On the downside, four or five clubs were considering quitting with one club facing financial problems. He did say they will be talking to these clubs to try and get a solution.

    According to this weeks League Express it’s too late for a replacement. Shame for the lad

    Just read in Phil Hodgson’s column, there are two clubs considering withdrawing from the NCL with another folding altogether. It’s not looking good. Has anyone heard which clubs these are?

    Tri county series

    Although it may still be a honour to represent your county, it's become a farce when the national side has already been selected. In my day it was via club, district league, county with the ultimate goal being selected for England/BARLA. What's the point of a player traveling from Hull to Castleford to train then making a trek up to Cumbria knowing the position he plays someone is sat at home waiting to go to the other side of the world. It could only happen in rugby league.

    I can't find the latest discipline report on the NCL website it only shows the June report in the disciplinary section

    You're right about loyalty, a couple of years ago we raised the money for a lad to go on tour. He signed for a semi professional club on his return played as substitute for a couple of games and then joined one of our local rivals
