We all know that the League committees guide the directions their clubs and leagues go in and in most cases club reps only turn up to a meeting to stop a fine (We had a secretary who never used to go to many meetings years ago simply because they where boring and the fine was less than the petrol costs)

It looks from this report that the rumblings from the shop floors are not very favourable towards summer rugby with the same problems being stated that we've gone over an upteempth time.

(In) regards to holidays, lad's stag weekends, Christmas, work events, weddings, christenings etc, the game in general is suffering (and) will continue to do so, as lifestyles and attitudes have changed from yesteryear. The days have gone, where you could work half day on a Saturday.......

Punctuated for the sake of the English language

Lifestyles and attitudes have always changed. If they didn't, we would all still be playing and watching Rugby Union!

Playing at Christmas has hardly ever been an issue, as it usually involves a 2 week break. Watch this year in the Pennine League. Few teams will play between 16th December and 4th January

The impact on clubs of playing games in the summer months is greater than the winter. Without a doubt.

Even the RFL are now conceding this point. They are conducting a variety of surveys to try to make the summer a success.

Let's see what they come up with. :rolleyes:

And here was silly me thinking at first sight that this thread was about the meeting called by Phil Hodgson as chair of Castleford and Featherstone ARL at Shawcross for 14th November , supported by Oldham ARL and Heavy Woollen ARL , to be chaired by Leeds ARL

A 'tight ' agenda is promised relevant to District Leagues.

Doesn't sound like Barla are running that meeting......

And if that's the case , maybe the natives really are getting restless..... :(

Peter the article in the League Express doesn't say anything more than what has already been discussed on this site, the only difference is the voice is getting louder and it's coming from the clubs and not the guiding committees.

Fair enough Marauder. Processes are in place to collate the feedback properly.

In the meantime though , don't sidestep my point......

What on earth is Phil up to ? His e mail went out sunday evening to all district Barla members but no mention anywhere in the trade press , including his own. . And the Leagues mentioned are die hard Barla ......

Maybe it's something and nothing - just inter - league perhaps ? but it doesn' t look like that from the outside . Have you seen an agenda ?

And what has happened to Barla general meetings.? Surely that's the proper forum even now..... otherwise the natives are more than just restless , they're potentially in revolt......

It's about recent RFL activities etc, like breaking long standing agreements between the RFL & BARLA.

Just trying to work out whether this meeting is taking place with Barla approval , without their agreement or regardless of Barla.

A ' tight ' agenda is promised. Should be interesting.......

But still believe that if you are in a trade union / organisation that's where you should raise issues and make them fight the fight on your behalf ( assuming of course you have right on your side...)

As long has everything is clear and transparant and no hidden hand outs or privleges are being offered :huh: with personal egos being left at home, I'm ok

I still wouldn't be surprised if the Pennine League take over from BARLA.

Why does it have too?

The RFL have been trying to fuel egos on the Pennine committee for some time with the promise of running the game for the RFL in Yorkshire at tier4.

They run about 80% of the open age winter game better than BARLA could anyway

Pennine committee and BARLA have completely different roles to play within the amateur game, I'd say running the Pennine or any other league is a lot harder than running the association.

Well done Jim, 10000 posts, and 9900 of them about summer rugby / RFL since last March! :)

To be fair the RFL have recently done something totally counter productive that even the most rule happy blazered BARLA committee member would be proud of. :angry:

Tim I've also been tracking your mood and comments over the last 12 months and I could be wrong but IMO you don't seem to be that happy with the way the RFL are conducting themselves, I also have a feeling your starting to see through the little hand outs to soften committees, clubs and players.

I've nothing against summer rugby or winter rugby and my summer posts are not directed against a single club.

I've now got all the facts and I do understand why they've done what they've done, sadly the end result is still the same. The whole incident makes me even more sceptical about having scholarships at all.

Oh dear, the 'S' word. What's happened now?

Nothing to see here. Move on. :)

The details of the case aren't that important. I've given up trying to understand how the performance pathway works as it changes all the time and I certainly think that the community game is the last thing that is considered when the performance strategy is developed.

You'll be on my side soon as more and more changes by the RFL eat into all your hars work, It wouldn't surprise me if all your players who are involved with service areas/academies don't get sent to Hillsborough Hawks very soon. (This was a RFL plan a few years ago but amateur clubs didn't likr it, but now the MOU's have been signed the amateurs have lost control of their own destiny)

Was flicking through this months RLW at the train station today and saw the article on summer rugby. Was interesting to see the comment from the chairman of Crigglestone All Blacks speaking out against summer rugby. It was slightly ironic to read it, as most of his club's players and coach played for Walton in the summer league this year, and Crigg are struggling now they are back in the "rugby season" to put a team out on the pitch.

Whenever you play, it will not always suit some people, but it is difficult to believe that the coming generation of players, brought up on summer rugby, would choose to play in the winter over summer in this country.
