How many Teams Will fail to Start/Complete Season?

231 posts in this topic

If my memory serves me right a few clubs asked the league to run an interim summer competition, to give the clubs a chance to keep their players within the club instead of transfering to the RLC for the summer season.

This was at the end of the winter season, and the other clubs had a rest.

Only a handfull of clubs took up the offer (12 I think).

Milford beat Thatto Heath in the final at Leigh East.

You are right in saying that it was a one off, due to lack of clubs showing interest, but as well documented moved en mass last year.

Seems that the Structure of the Premier Pennine clubs is not of the same standard of the NCL clubs with Queens only having 11 men against Sharlston and Slaithewaite Spartans and Dewsbury Moor game down as a walkover unless all the players were either on a stag do, a wedding or taking their families to the coast it would appear that winter Rugby is struggling at the highest level.

i would have chosen another team other than queens to poke fun at considering the NCL record against them over recent years, its a good job they dont use the same caoch company are it might of broke down,

Not have a poke at any team just a answer to the topic headline of which teams will finish the season! also having a go at the summer bashers on this forum that seem to think that all the problems within the game are because of the switch to summer Marauder stated that the winter pennine clubs have the same structure as the NCL clubs I was pointing out that they dont. you are also one of the summer bashers and once again you turn the topic around to suit your view. ie the Queens record against NCL clubs at what part of qoute did i say queens were not a top team as you say their record against NCL teams speaks volumes.

Wasn't there a number of teams relegated for failing to fulfill fixtures? not counting coach breakdowns, obviously

The game has got many problems across the board not just at open age but even we are expeirencing problems at Junior level .

Is it a coincidence that its since the wholesale move to Summer ?

The main problem is that the powers that be will not admit we have problems just mask the issues when challenged .

How many Normanton open aged players travelled to (I think) Saddleworth last season, how many `A` team games got played mid week so clubs could fulfil fixtures.

Without looking back, which are the two teams in the Pennine Premier who don't run `A` teams?

Bet diesel engines don't run as well in the summer.

Maybe the problem will not be admitted because the powers that be have crossed the line and point of no return, from the feed back I'm getting clubs have started to wake up to what has actually happened, the problem they have is not having the same high standard (over all) available back in the winter at the moment, if it's made available and this summer season is the same success as last season I'd expect a little bit of movement.

There are lots of people with egg on there faces over all this summer nonsense! Many continue to dig the whole deeper! The WHOLE of the game is suffering due to the flag ship comp(ncl) moving to summer! Back to the original thread, St Cuthberts(couldn't raise a team for friendly at home on Saturday, Leigh East turned up!)

Dont think its fair to put all the blame on the NCL they where manipulated like a lot of others , but the tide is turning slowly and many are now starting to question the motives .

Who are these clubs giving you feedback becuase it seems mainly you and S Bull are the ones moaing about summer.

There are some rpoblems with summer but Winter had its own problems which others on here seem to forget, if soo many teams as you imply are unhappy with summer why arent they talking to otehr NCL and asking for a change, i know the NCL have said it is a 3 year agreement but if the majority of clubs said they wanted to go back to winter the pennine league would suddenly the best comp to play in.

As I was the person who started this thread I am pleased it has provoked some lively discussion. I just hope that once the new NCL season starts and if there are apparent problems with some teams raising a full team including subs ( I think there will be a problem with players staying with their winter teams and having other commitments). The league must then accept there is an ongoing issue and quickly get the clubs together for discussion as to how to address the situation.

Some long established clubs will struggle for players and financially due to a lack of enthusiasm from players and supporters for summer, a fact discussed last season and during the winter among many supporters and club officials who are very worried about players availability and income. Although some people are in denial the quality of the league is reduced, as is support and general enthusiasm. I do agree some clubs may be doing ok but talking to people who have supported the game for years all is not well with many long established clubs and it may well get worse if the problems are not addressed. Letting it rumble on for this season and the next will further ruin what was a tremendous league in its winter format.

Weathers good all over! No rain for a week! Wonder what the excuses for failed fixtures in the flag ship competition are today? I know of at least one game not on!

They all went ahead as planned. He's a troll....

Couple of worrying scores but otherwise a more than decent launch to our season.

Took in the Cuthbert's v Coventry game myself.

Great match.

A more street wise Wigan side got the result but the Midlands side learned a lot. Welcome to real rugby Coventry . I doubt that you will give away many points at home. Enjoy the journey.....
