Keith T

Dual Reg -again!

36 posts in this topic

In todays RL Express there was a story about Fev, Fax, Leigh and Sheffield having put together their ideas of how the Dual Reg system should operate after they had held a meeting to discuss it. They invited Barrow to attend but they couldn't because it was their match day v Batley. The "gang of four" have now come up with a document outlining what they want to see happen and are asking all the other Championship clubs to sign it in support.

My own personal feelings are that they are not far off what should be the system but until they invite ALL the Championship clubs to meet then I would not sign it. We get enough foisted on us by the RFL and SLE without the top clubs in the Championship wanting it all their own way as well, going off and having meetings on their own!!

I've not seen the article yet Keith, but if its around limiting the number of players and the age of players then I'd agree that something has t be done. I'd also put a proviso in around the number of SL appearances.

I'd also agree that its got to come from the majority of Championship clubs before something is forwarded to the RFL.

You're nort going to get Swinton to agree, and probably Hunslet as Hetherington has too much control there. So once 10 out of the 14 in our division put their names to it, plus some of Div 1 then that would be enough for me.

I'm dead against most of what DR is doing but would not want those top 4 just going their own way, it has to be a united front from the majority.

As i see it only one team seem to be over doing the DR system. i don't see a problem with how town are using it.

That's my point Shaun, it's not just up to 4 clubs to come up with a solution and then ask everyone else just to sign and go along with their thoughts.

Personally, I agree with much of what they are proposing but when they say all players must be Under 23 I would disagree and go for Under 25. I do agree that all players must be outside the top 20 in the SL clubs squad.

I do think the system is being abused in certain instances but I also think it's the case that the so called big 4 or 5 aren't having it their own way as much on the park and seem a bit rattled by it hence they feel the need try and bring in a regulation to keep the status quo as it were. This makes them no better than the SL clubs they're always moaning about in my eyes.

They don't like it up em!.....

What people should focus on is - is this the best way to develop players for the sport ?

Sigh................ Nobody is diputing that, read the thread and it is the way these clubs have decided what they think is best for everyone and expect the other clubs to follow them that Keith is objecting to. I take it by your reference to the greater good, the club you support are one of the above clubs?

Really!!!

Ha ha there are some top lads on that site. I hope our mate H4E/BKM is standing by his prinipals although he did change his mind after Gardner played, no doubt Haven 94 or whatever it is will be swooning at the thought. I think he must have lost his contacts when the Bish left as he doesn't seem to pride himself on inside knowledge anymore!

Sometimes I think I should bite the bullet and join that site as it is a laugh reading it, but I know I'd end up banned after 24 hours by the plastic mod's. I will just bide my time until back shift tomorrow and read it on my mates phone.

yeah i think were only using them because we have to. matty,miller and rooney should be back shortly so i cant see us using them unless we get more injuries. i think you will be extremely lucky to get a bp. i expect fev to put 40-50 on all 3 cumbrian sides this year, although they werent champs last year there by far the best team in this league..

Woods is just frightened that Town fans will start calling haven St Helens A team, like haven4ever does about Town calling us Widnes Reserves even though we have actually played the DR system as it it was meant to be with no 30 year 100+ SL appearance ex-international players. Ha ha.

shaun, i cant see you gettting a BP against fev but to be fair all cumbrian clubs will be up against it playing fev this season. As well as fev you have something else to contend with on Sunday that will have you frustrated.

If any of the promoted sides get within 30 of Fev this season that's their result of the year , but those games are irrelevant.

well now that barrow are sick of losing there have made a u-turn on there stance on dual reg. i wonder if there fans will do the same, they have a topic called workington vikings basically just having a dig at us. but they dont seem to realise we beat them easily using 1 playing and travel to york with none in our squad. in my opinion if your going to have these principles you stick with them, not change your mind after 5 games.

Barrow are not the only one's doing u-turn over dual reg, although Holty sounds as if he is going down the loaning route rather than full partnership DR. A certain poster on here that posted umpteen posts on various forums about playing DR correctly has been crying out this week for his team to select 2 or 3 from their SL partner. Double standards seems to be the in term at the moment.
