    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.

    BARLA GB - England Lions

    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

    Stanley Rangers leave NCL

    I think it would have been time consuming for admin staff to adjust the table so this was the easiest way at this stage of the season. I think this is the first time it has happened

    Cheers much appreciated

    oulton v milford

    Trevor Hunt the Chairman of the NCL who was commentating on the game said he had never seen or known it to happen before. Maybe the referee came through the Pennine league and this rule is implemented

    Another weekend of postponements?

    Gateshead v Oldham St. Annes off

    Sad, in their opening game at St. Annes they only had 16 players available and it included the coaching staff. Their facilities at Boardman Lane are fantastic. I don't know what the solution is.
