with the northern rail cup being cancelled next season how about oldham,rochdale,swinton & leigh organise our own little pre season comp??

3 home & 3 away games then a top 2 final

would this interest anyone??

We might be too busy for that, being in the league above you and all. . :)

Joking apart, it'd be nice to see. Instead of Leigh how bout Mayfirld, st Anne's, saddleworth and waterhead play their own mini series for entry into the comp instead of Leigh?

The Amateur Teams you mention play in the 'Oldham Standard Cup' the winners of that could gain entry into your proposed Cup but what would be the Incentive for the Amateur Clubs ?

I'm with Roughyedspud on this one, I can't see the point of including the amateur teams. Four teams is just about the right number, giving each team 6 matches.

North Wales not invited then? Frightened of a bit of stiff competition?

Micky Mouse proposals - the Lancashire Cup should be brought back with SL teams included. Who wants to watch chip shop RL

That would help the pre season - getting truly hammered by super league teams (and risking serious injuries being up against full timers who are much bigger and fitter).

I thought the idea of the proposal was to provide a competitive pre season at low cost - and it seems to fit the bill -if that is the purpose.

the answer is in the name of the comp as to why you would'nt be invited...

So to difficult to broaden it out then?

I can't see the point of that, unless you insist on the SL teams only playing their reserve teams.

Super League has no place along side proper Rugby League. The real passion & dedication is in the Championships. I like the idea of a Gtr Manchester comp
