Dual Reg set to stay!

10 posts in this topic

The RFL insist that dual registration is here to stay - in its current form - until at least the end of next season.

That is the opening sentence in an article published in the League Weekly newspaper this morning. Despite calls to scrap it and clubs cancelling partnerships, Red Hall are adamant "alterations" - if any - will not be made until the 2015 season when a brand new structure is expected to be introduced.

The RFL's director of standards and licensing, Blake Solly, told League Weekly, "Dual Registration will remain a part of the sport, in its current form,for the 2014 season. There wont be any changes to it. However, after next year, it will possibly be amended as part of the policy review for 2015 and beyond".

So, despite all the comings and goings this season there is no change for next season.

You will have Declan Hulme for most of next year and I would get Tom Gilmore too.Both cracking players that will add strength in depth for Workington.

If we're gonna use it I agree with the coaches who've come out and said you want as strong assurances as possible that these players are available for long , consistent periods , otherwise its to destabilising and counterproductive . If we can get one or two season loans then that should be much more preferable and our first avenue. DR is an asset if the players gel into the team over time , as they naturally have ability , but week by week handouts and callbacks can work against you as easily as for you ,as your structure in games is affected as well as it can be enhanced .Rule number one is get your own strong squad together and stand on your own two feet , then try and add loans if needed , and then if using the DR route try and make sure it's in your interests with consistency of selection , and not purely an adhoc procedure simply at the whim and benefit of the parent club , with you waiting until Friday afternoon to see what's thrown out ! Our league has learned a lot about DR this year , it'll be very interesting to see how those lessons affect behaviour next year . I think teams will be a lot more savvy . I'm a supporter in principle , but the way it's operated needs ironing out and the integration of the players needs to be fuller than a lot we saw this year , with players coming and going for one game , for various reasons ,and often with little or no desire . And the star player popping in thing has to go !!

Yes I added that ... Total mockery . It disrespects and affects acutely the integrity of the comp .i wonder if a performance of one of the aforementioned star players in a game cost a side a league position , or play off spot or , heaven forbid , in the end relegation . You get dazzled by a top talent and miss out on something by two or three points ???

I hope we dont go down the DR route this season with a new coach in place as it was Holty who made the ultimate decision not to last season. Time will tell !

thing is morty do you think you will be able to afford a competetive squad without it. with more teams relegated next year and going off this seasons performances then barrow will really struggle.

How many players who signed for a team only to be told that their place had been taken by a DR will want to sign for that team again next season if DR is staying in its current form?

Wood played against workington on the opening day, swinton got beat.

Bridge played against dewsbury, swinton got beat.

Morley played in the northern rail cup against cursaders, not the league, swinton won

Briers played against whitehaven, swinton won, whitehaven missed out on a playoff spot to workington.

Read into DR what you will..
