Best time for playing season

Recommended Posts

With competitions running in winter and summer and both seeming to have their share of problems would a season running from March to December with a summer break be a best fit for clubs?

Sorry we have been here numerous times before but I would go start September winter break say January/February March till June that could give about 26 weeks including Grand Final, Easter, Magic off that would be best for the youth as there ages replicate the school year. Start the season in good weather finish in good weather and light nights for catch up games, cup finals etc; We talk about summer rugby but start in the worst weather for pre-season and still need lights and finish in bad weather and dark nights, what was wrong with mid week cup finals, you cannot do that unless you have lights. You start the summer then stop more or less for Easter, Bank Holiday before you really get going, you get these out the way then summer holidays and all the other distractions, either break may difficult to get players back but after Christmas you have light nights and better weather to look forward too, the summer break you start to get dark night and worse weather. During the break you could play Tri series, Yorkshire/Lancashire Cup BARLA National cup for those clubs that really want to play this would also give people games to watch and keep interest going in the game, the summer break would lead to nothing going on, people do other things and lose interest.

NWC had a winter break and it seemed to work well.

I like your idea better. I think mid winter isnt the best time to play but mid summer is causing its own problems.Would be good if everyone played at the same time and think this would work. Everyone could then pull in the same direction and get as many people playing the games as possible. 9 a side comps could be run throughout the summer for those that want it

The season should be determined by the clubs involved so that they can play when it suits them best from a player availability perspective and from when they can generate most funds and have the most matches

If that means that leagues run summer & winter leagues then so be it

Participation is the key not political arguments
