Further investment for Fax

26 posts in this topic

Great news! It's good to see clubs such as Halifax and Featherstone getting themselves in shape behind the scenes aswell as having competitive sides on the field (take note widnes). I hope the RFL take this into consideration when sorting out the final make up of the newly structured leagues and give teams such as these their deserved chance to prove themselves instead of holding them back longer.

I'm always a little sceptical of these announcements. Is there actual £cash£money changing hands here or is there a value being put on the time that this chap will be "working" for Halifax?

I'm more sceptical when Bradford say they are waiting for investment to pay players

A bank loan is not investment

Good to see Fax moving forward and getting more sponsorship money.

it does seem to differentiate between the blokes working for them and the sponsorship as that was my initial thought.

Halifax is a real rugby league town.If it got the right investment and got into SL and started to do well,I firmly believe their attendances would exceed those of Huddersfield easily

any club outside super league could realistically match Huddersfields attendances and they are setting the standards of the elite

I'm extremely sceptical of any "investment". It implies the investor wanting his money back ..... plus something on top.

These small Yorkshire clubs your refering to actually deserve a licence unlike your club. As these clubs have earned the right unlike your club.Im also very interested in why you have so much hate for the likes of Fev, fax , batley etc.

At the end of the day Widnes did what they had to and got in S/L so fair play to them

Clubs like Mine (Fev) and Fax are now going to get the opportunity if they do things right on the field in a year or two so lets see what happens

Back on topic any investment for any RL club is great so well done Fax

Don't think we can next year, unless the cap is altered.  I expect the back room set up to more closely mirror a full time set up, with the change to the playing budget being made in 2015.

It would be very hard to do it next season with the salary cap that's in place but they will be going full time when the P&R season starts.

You would have needed a salary cap increase to have done it, which im not sure would be a good idea.

The only reason i can think of for going fully pro would be to hit the ground running in 2015 when the two relegated sl clubs join the league

The problem is we use the full salary cap now and they are only semi pro so to go full time we need the salary cap increasing. Also like you say theirs really no need to go full time next season. Also who says the 2 SL clubs will stay full time?.

It never even crossed my mind that they would not stay pro.

TBH i thought one of the reasons for the new structures that are coming in was to increase the number of pro clubs
