The reality is - if you really do want a DR player, twin up until he goes back, then end the agreement.

so, you are saying all the feeder clubs can send DR players back and end the agreement at any time. can you really see the rfl standing for that. where did you get that info from

Any club can end any agreement with sufficient notice.

...with sufficient notice.

And that means? A week? A month? 6 months? A year?

And since you're obviously well up on this issue can you point me in the direction of the OFFICIAL RFL statement on the rules and regulations of 'twinning'?

I'm sure the notice period will be individually negotiated for each partnership, the inference that there is any notice period for Championship clubs is interesting though. To date all the Champs clubs have publicly insisted that they have no obligations whatsoever, why would you need a notice period on a deal which places no obligation upon you??

The RFL don't care about our league or the league below if you think twinning is the way to go and it's best for your club then fair enough everyone is entitled to their opinion. But I for one would not watch featherstone rovers again if we became a feeder club like yourselves. I would rather be in CC1 fighting relegation than sign up to the twinning situation. I also acknowledge that not everyone will think the same way I do but I do believe the twinning situation is a slow and painfull death for the club you've always loved.

Are we twinning or feeding? Stop changing terminology to suite! I thought you had stopped watching Featherstone Rovers for a much more trivial reason than this anyway.

Please remember that none of 'us' have any say in the decision making that goes on at our clubs, so please stop telling me and others what the RFL and SLE believe.

Oh ok, you seem remarkably well informed of the whole situation as I previously said. And Toy? Explain please.

I've seen Batley's version of the arrangement and the perceived benefits which in JK's opinion will make their partnership the envy of others but strangely I've not seen any statement from Huddersfield about what's in it for them. Why are they providing Batley with expensive private health care, employing extra medical staff, providing expertise on several fronts and offering extensive use of their facilities if they have absolutely no control over team selection? As I said, what's in it for them? It all seems one way and hardly typical of SL's attitude towards the Championship.

The only input the RFL have is the rules for DR, which wasn't possible until recently. You had to be registered at one club or another. So, yes, they'll stand for it as it's nothing to do with them. It's an agreement between the clubs involved. Apart from the registration regulations referred to, there are no rules.

Notice period ? Up to the clubs .... but at the end of the day, what business wants an unwilling partner ?

How patronising we all are towards the people that run our clubs. Take my own club's directors. people who grew up with the club, are supporters but also are people who have managed the club fantastically well with good sense and a keen business acumen at a time when revenue has dropped and we all agree that it is harder than ever to keep afloat. Are we now to believe that they are all walking blindfolded towards oblivion? That they have been duped by a wicked cabal of SLE and RFL directors who have only one desire, and that's to somehow control all of the championship clubs.

You eloquently listed all of the benefits of our agreement with Huddersfield and you know what? It looks pretty good. Why on earth shouldn't Batley get something good out of it? Is the Featherstone way the only way to run a club? I doubt it. As for what the Giants get out of it, I have absolutely no idea, but I trust my club's directors to do the best by my club. One thing I do believe is that the Giants made the first approach to my club, and we certainly did not go begging to any SL club.

It is universally agreed that Featherstone are doing a fantastic job and if anyone says they do not admire it then they are lying. But when the likes of Thundergaz come on here and starts talking about selling souls etc I despair, I really do.

Batley using private health care is due to nhs waiting list also getting seen by top doctors unavailable also huddersfield have offered to lend batley an indoor training centre if the weather gets bad. other than the gym at ground. the giants have got something out of it by using the bulldogs ground for u19's,u16's and u15's matches. also john has also said he will use the giants players if they train and show their better than we have but he could use players such as Alex Brown and James Green from Hull Kr if needed on loan or duel reg as such as walmsley and Fleming so you don't have to be a feeder club or anything to have duel reg. see fev didn't you have young briscoe on duel reg last year?

That's the difference. Season long - or even shorter - loans are fine but what's the use of a player who might be called back at a moment's notice ?

If the rules are as suggested, only able to take dr from a club you're partneted with, Walmsley wont be available to you, will he?

He could, if he's nowhere near saints 1st team. Under current rules loans cant be terminated within the first 28 days so not particularly practical for fringe players.

Not "unavailable", then.

Well in the strictest sense, no but in the context I used the word, yes. I was replying to a post which spoke of Alex Walmsley returning to Batley on dual registration.

I'm not having a go I like batley but I'm just very worried for the clubs that have linked up. I don't want any champ club to go out of business etc. I agree I might be blowing it out of proportion but I just believe the RFL and SL clubs care about themselves and no one else. SL clubs are greedy where money is concerned and the RFL don't want to know when it comes to our league.i hope it works for the champ clubs but with the one sidedness that the RFL and SL clubs have attitude wise I just think it's disastrous. But that's just my opinion and i understand for most clubs it was a saving grace to them. I just think a lot of caution needs to be taken.

I just asked an innocent question about what's in it for Huddersfield, no need to go off on one. I hope it proves to be a fantastic success for Batley, one of my favourite clubs for the very reasons you state, well run by people who love the club.

That may well be the case, I don't have the knowledge to comment. I was simply pointing out that it seems, contrary to press reports at the time of his transfer and your earlier post, he will not be able to play for Batley on Dual Registration. If his only options are Saints 1st team or Batley on loan then that seems to have potentially negative ramifications for the player in terms 1st team opportunities at Saints and/or Batley in terms of his availability.
