Good to see Barla continue to liaise closely with the rest of the game before declaring their fixtures.......

 

The weekend of 12/13 October is the most critical one in the NCL calendar .Promotion and relegation issues are usually decided then

 

In recognition of the small matter of the World Cup  Barla  have chosen to compete on the quarter finals weekend , where games are scheduled for Wigan and Warrington.  No doubt they have been assured of total player and spectator commitment to these '  crown jewel ' fixtures...............

 

No such problems for 24 November though. After all that's the day after the semi - final double header at Wembley , so everyone will be back and in fine fettle won't they?

 

Forget the wastelands of December / January / february . Those are the  months for the  ' traditionalists '   Must not invade their territory, and anyway the weather could be just as bad as last year..............

 

You couldn't make it up if you tried.........

Yes BARLA have shown the same self centred consideration that the RFL offered them in 2012 when they managed to extend the NCL fixtures to clash with the BARLA County Tri-Series.

 

And read carefully, it's the Under 17 BARLA Tri Series County Championship that kicks off on Sunday 13th October Del Boy, I can't see many under 17's being crucial to your precious promotion/relegation issues on that weekend. Unless of course it disrupts the professional academies that have stormed - trooped into the amateur game.

 

On the quarter finals weekend I think that the selectors will have a mind to steer clear of certain NCL division 3 teams who always like an away day on big game days.

 

On the 24th November; do you know what Del I do actually agree and I'm sure that will have to change.

 

As a matter of interest Del, how you will refer to the wastelands of December/January/February months when team pressure forces the NCL back in to a traditional season - will it be the winter break.

 

Any way Del Boy isn't professional/NCL rugby played in the summer.

Too many different agenda's, too many different formats, too many different competitions, agreed playing calendar pointless and never adhered to, nobody prepared to listen too or debate with reason or clear rationale, no clear structure at all, goalposts, concepts and structures re-jigged every single season in some capacity, far too much politics and far too many people who have no idea whatsoever about what is required to sort the sport out once and for all from top to bottom!

 

And people wonder why its in the mess it is?
