Which teams are entering the Hull and District League this term?

Will there be 2 leagues?

Six teams. Brownies, Tuns, NHK, Bransholme, Reckitts, Lambwath. The League should be all over by New Year, a few Cup games then the NCL starts again. Where are all the kids going from the Clubs who have half-a-dozen teams? There must be hundreds of youngsters playing the game who never make it to Open Age. Our NCL teams have probably got around 125 registered and the Yorks Men's League another 250, plus the Academy set-up. It seems as though there just aren't any wanting to play the winter game any more. I love watching the game all year round but prefer the winter matches so hopefully someone can find a solution, if not this season then next.

As I've said before the only way the Hull and district will survive is by switching to summer. By doing this all the NCL teams would (I guess) enter their A teams (cost saving). At least then coach's will know what players they have for the season without losing players in Jan/Feb when the summer teams start training.  I prefer winter but the young kids now a days all play summer growing up and have no inclination to play winter rugby.

I agree in the main, the only issue is they don’t want to play Summer either, I think the community game is in free fall, I think another of David Gents famous comments “There will be casualties only the strong will survive” spring to mind, in another life was he a 1st World War general?

The amateur league is a complete shambles. The hierarchy do not appear to be interested in the problem of failing teams. The summer/winter split has all about brought the game down to its knees. All we get is statements that players want to be with the families etc, but you cant expect lads to turn up for training twice weekly, plus turning up on a Saturday, only to be informed that the opposition cannot raise a team. I support an amateur team who have never missed a fixture, despite sometimes travelling with only 12 players I can foresee the day when clubs will be operating with a junior age limit of about 13 yrs. A sad state of affairs for the grass roots.

Hull won 40-10. A bit scrappy and York had what looked a perfectly good try disallowed just as they might have got back into it (not by the ref but the linesman). Jack Tuttle of NHK man of the match with a try and 6 goals.

Just seen the Hull and district team fro the game v York. Very good team but not sure how many of those lads will play a whole season in the Hull and district league.

They wouldn't be the Hull league anymore if they all went to summer, it's the Yorkshire Mens League

Not allowed, RFL rules H&D only have a winter licence like the Pennine, it’s corparate B......S and why would the RFL allow a Hull league the Hull teams in the YML in the main fulfil their fixtures, they would also lose about 15-20% of the teams that actually play most weeks

Maybe the YML would set up a Hull division? Though they'd still want the better teams in the Yorkshire wide divisions
