Teams that finished above us last season have dropped a division as well, all I can put it down to is clubs have applied to move either up or down depending on their playing rota this season, I think a few of our committee wanted to drop a division because we've lost about 7 of our better players but the lads said they wanted to play at the best level possible.

 

Our division looks a stronger one this season, if we end about the same area as last season we will have done well.

The Pennine league is a bit alien to me. But the naming conventions look a little strange. First Division is the 4th league from the top. What's the history behind those?

I think this all started when the Pennine started to get a big influx of Yorkshire league teams, traditionally a good side would have started in division one, but it wouldn't have been a good idea putting the likes of Sharlston, Queens, Drighlington and Hunslet Old Boys into Division one.

 

Three seasons ago after a big influx the Pennine actually ran a East/West first division or championship division (Can't remember which one off the top of my head) Ironically it was the same season we sat out the winter season after being told by the Yorkshire league we couldn't move across, our plan was to rest our players after seven years of back to back rugby then apply again as a new club.

Where have the seven better players gone?

Word around the town is Boothtown have asked to drop down as they have lost some players, they've done it before though. 

 

Ovenden should be too strong for Div 6, think league have slipped up there, same goes for East Leeds.

Retired and two to Doncaster Toll Bar

 

Put it this way, Sheffield Hallam have scored 800 and odd points in CLS and 3 players who where Marauders have scored about 25% of their points.

yes, i think they should have just gone back to renaming the leagues back from premier , then one to nine.

 

Re our league (championship) , I think its similar to last year in terms of quality. We have a small squad again this year , even less than last year, so whilst i would back our first 17 against anyone in that league, we have lost a number of squad members so at present only have around 17/18 players available. Hopefully we will pick a couple more up. unfortunately some have decided they cant handle the championship and dropped down a few divisions so not sure how we will fare.

 You get more kudos for staying in your league than the teams who asked for an easier ride in a lower divisions. If there are runaway winners of these lower leagues then the genuine teams will feel a bit miffed.

One of the remarkable things nobody has remarked upon is the unbelievable growth in the number of community RL clubs in Leeds. There must be 40+ clubs now; no wonder the Rhinos have such a prolific academy!

Not to mention all the others in YML, NCL etc, along with all the junior only clubs.

Any ideas why this area in particular seems to be thriving and what lessons we can learn?

Is it because they are all within a mile or two of Red Hall?                     :no:

 The recent success of the Rhinos and the demise of Leeds Utd will help
