Draft fixtures for Prem and Div 1 and 2 are ready for delegates meeting on 14th , subject to at the AGM immediately before clubs accepting the Management 's universal recommendation that Eastmoor and Heworth be re-elected into membership - hopefully no problems there.

Management meet on 7th Jan to finalize their recommendations on the Blackbrook and Woolston applications. Clubs ( including the already voted in new ones ) will all then be e mailed with those recommendations for them to consult with their committees prior to a vote at the delegates meeting on 14th. Draft fixtures for 3rd Div will be issued within 7 days thereafter.....

Looking forward to an exceptional 2013 season........

Would seem daft not to re-elect the two Yorkshire clubs with the RFL push to summer rugby IMO.

Plus the addition of another division means the NCL needs to keep the existing clubs. From memory New Earswick All Blacks are the only team not re elected but certainly recently it's been a formality

Formality or not it remains a decision for the members.

Marauder is quite correct. Regardless of the push to summer , it remains obvious that these two superb clubs should continue to be part of the flagship competition.

My personal hope is that the NCL will set off in 2013 with a full 50 clubs - the biggest , tightest and best comp that the Community game can offer , with shared attitudes and a camaraderie that only those clubs inside the pail would ever understand....

Happy New Year Taxi Egg

Sorry I missed you at CCG but 3 rugby meetings in a week is a bit hard for me at this time of year. Maybe a weak spot ? :unsure: . That said Andy H , who after all writes the calendar ,also sits on the NCL management and assured me that everything was running smoothly from a general position and an NCL one in particular. Hopefully i'll be told of any issues and I will see you at the next one if not before..

And as for aims Taxi Egg, nice try , but mine is simply to increase the importance and relevance of the Amateur game ( sorry for swearing ) and especially the NCL within R L as a whole. Other people ( including our friends at Barla ) have had that job in the past and failed :- NCL Management are I think doing a reasonable job at the moment on that front , but , hey , it's election time again on 14th January so the clubs can boot us all out if they want.... :) :) :)

How did BARLA fail in increasing the importance and relevance of the amateur game (Was you not once a member of the BARLA comittee)

By leaving a Leadership void after re-unification in 2004 that others over time have had to fill.....To be honest the high point for Barla was the mid 90's immediately before the Packer / Murdock war - the NCL took advantage of that aggression , Barla had little idea....

The next RFL Council will see Barla's representation down from 3 to 1 , whilst other Community Reps take direct positions to cover their own areas of influence. This follows the Watkin's Review on Governance.....

Sorry reading perhaps Marauder but you're a military man and when the Colours fall they have to be picked up and carried forward by those still standing....

Whether that represents a failure by Barla to advance the Amateur cause or not I'll leave to others......

But the fight remains the same.......

Yes and when the colours fall the next man picks them up & not do a Benidict, BARLA only have 1 on the community board don't they? where the RFL seem to have many including members of the board bing independant (whats that all about) we also have a tier4 rep (how did he get the gig when BARLA have more actual playes/teams)

BARLA and tier 4 are about the same size at open age now. If anything tier 4 is bigger

Martin Coyd , ex Royal Engineers reps Tier 4. With David Hinchcliffe and others he helped break down the Forces ban on RL. He drives the Medway Dragons in the South .Maybe that's why he got the 'Gig '........Head to head him if you want......he's a seriously tough nut

Independent Board members are just that - look at it as non ex directors in a company assuming wider views than those with entirely vested interests.......standard practice for most organisations.

Benedict? Give me a break..... Arnold never hit the front line..... and certainly never carried the flag I've not lost the colours so far and don't intend to... Times change Marauder but that doesn't mean the amateurs are being out manouvered or being ignored within the new processes.........

All the best to you Peter and by the way Martin in a pussy cat ;)

Your right about the Barla Board they have failed to grasp the implications of the genesis agreement and have stood still and let the modern game go by, thats the point i,m making have you seen an opportunity to build and expand the NCL to become if you like the New Barla so to speak ?

I think the NCL's minimum criteria prevent it from ever being an organisation for the whole amateur game.

Tier 4 is bigger than BARLA is the most ridiculous pseudo fact you have ever made.

Bear in mind, tier 4 includes BARLA teams as does tier 3. You persistently muddying the waters with your one-liners does not aid amateur RL one jot. You're a clown

Thanks Mate

We've never not been on the same song sheet

Let's all see how 2013 rolls out..........

And you can call Martin a pussy to his face if you really want...........

Tier 4 in summer is bigger who the rep is for. In terms of number of clubs if not standards. Please don't be so abusive as I have shown you up on every occasion you've tried that. The pseudo fact was Marauder's

Pussy cat Peter ,I have sat with Martin in a couple of meetings and I think I know where his bread is buttered and you know what I mean by that ,you do not improve the game by watering down the traditional established regions to suit the fledglings its the other way round theyshould aspire to reach our standards .

We all know that the amateur game in the winter needs a good overhauling & especially the playing structure, I'm hopeful that the powers that be take up the challenge thats been set, but you like I know it's not all the actual management committee at the top that holding it back at the moment, IMO the sooner people stop wanting to feed their own ego's and look at what is the best for the teams (pub sides) within the game the better.

You might be pleasently surprised if you attended one of our delegates meetings - "only in competition for 80 minutes per week" has been the motto for at least five seasons. The NCL is not the only group of teams who are in it for the good of the game and I dare say its the same in London and the North East too, which is a good position to be in!

Blackbrook and Woolston Rovers recommended for inclusion. Good news as I think they'd both be good additions
