I'm not convinced any coach in the Championship is in favour of DR !!

Looked at the possible Haven side for the game at home the other week to write my programme notes. They had used both Jordan Case and Joe Greenwood from Saints on DR on occasion in previous weeks - both played for Rochdale yesterday !! Eh ?

Interested to know if you think it has benefited the Knights, Paul ?

Perhaps in one respect and one respect only IMO - that Jack Briscoe might consider signing for the Knights for 2014. That's about it and that's not to demean Bris cos he's been a star.

I am not saying that DR helps us or any other club in the division,but the question is are the players at the club better than the ones we have offered by Hull?

In some cases they are yes.

It really shouldn't be a debate. The whole DR farce was foisted upon the Championship clubs in order for the Super League clubs to save cash and once one of the clubs sold out the majority of others followed in a bid not to be left behind and relegated to Championship One. The Championship table is been distorted by who the Super League teams feel fit to be allowed to play on any given Sunday. Madness

I'm not convinced that there is any evidence to suggest that a player or players flitting in and out of a team as available is better than playing a settled side week in, week out ( injuries permitting ).

Take the Eagles as an example. They used Ben Gledhill from Salford for 3 games due to Jack Howieson retiring but their 17 has been pretty much unchanged for weeks and they sit joint top.

The effect the DR has had on the fringe players at certain clubs has been disastrous as young players have just walked out of the door and gone back to the am's.

I don't think its making that much difference at all to be honest. Most teams would still be where they are now without Dual-Reg.

 

I'm not saying I agree with it mind you. I'm glad the u23's are coming back.

Thought you'd have known better!

 

I like to think I know a reasonable amount. :)

I would hope the answer to that is a straightforward no.

If the Hull players are not better than the York payers who have been left out then it would indicate that team selection is being dictated by Hull. That surely would be "abuse" of the system. Eh Gav?

Sorry if i am asking to many Questions,but i don't want to see the Knights been Relegated and the supporters who do so much to keep the club going with the fundraising ending up with no club,which could happen if we are sent down?

It wouldn't happen. York would go just fine in Championship 1. Crusaders and Oldham are.

Who mine? I think it helps out both clubs. Obviously Hull call the shots, but so they should, as a club they're 10 times bigger than us currently.

 

The squad we have is strong enough to stay in this division. If we get Hull lads back to help then great, if not, no biggie.

 

In my humble opinion of course.

if the squad is strong enough then we don't need anyone from hull !!

I'll say this before Big Ian does, but if you want to know what GT thinks about this seasons

dual reg then you should have been at the recent Q&A night...

I/we asked him - as he said - you get good & bad with it, but Gav is spot on - we have

not abused it like others - the worst thing is that it sounds like the RL were complicit in

helping the abusers abuse the system.

 

How can you possibly ask if so & so had played would we have won - they are rugby players, depends

on the individual & what head he has on at that time, some of our lads are not as good as some of the

Hull lads, but then you could say you get great team spirit, bodies on the line etc when you get 17

lads who have trained, socialised & been together all season - its not that black & white - (Hull colours!!)
