  1. Can't we play with a little surface water anymore , The games gone soft
  2. And just to highlight how cock eyed the game is one Junior league secretary is asking clubs to ok "friendlies" during the winter break . Correct me if I am wrong but didn't we switch to summer so that our kids did not play in the winter months.?
  3. The RFL are reliant on SE funding the schools comp is a token gesture as even the best schools will only play a dozen games each year at the most . We are told the game is expanding at youth and junior outside the heartlands where is the evidence ? We should have a vibrant country wide competition we have had ten years of unification and one governing body not much to show in reality .
  4. Unification as not worked full stop , and one of the biggest reasons is the RFL do not subscribe to democracy . They don't want us the administrators to discuss plans with our clubs all meeting documents are marked private and confidential if it's for the good of the game why can't plans be open and transparent . Voting rights are now stacked in the RFL s favour so every policy gets pushed through because the RFL appoint the sub committees who are encouraged to make individual decisions without going back it the leagues and clubs approval . Barla board members are living in cloud cuckoo land as they do not see that they have failed the amateur game , I asked one board member to compare the strength of the organisation when he first joined the board and it's present strength , still waiting for a reply . The only way forward IMO is for a new amateur body to be created break away from the RFL and approach all the countries clubs to re invent an organisation run by the clubs for the clubs .
  5. How does moving clubs enhance skills Keith ? You can't say it's wrong to move to Thatto and in the same breath say its ok to move to Brook .
  6. It is Keith if it unsettles kids and they leave a club they have been well looked after and developed for the promise of a scholarship at under 15s clearly in breach of all current RFL policies .
  7. Think the regional league need to take a lead on this and restrict the movement of players or at least attempt to administer the rules as per their constitution . We have had two lads leave our 13s and move from Leigh to Blackbrook both players I am led to believe have been receiving coaching at St Helens .

  9. David Lowe is a paid employee ( RFL funded ) Chair and president on the community board may begin to give you the answers you are looking for Jim ?
  10. A play on words close collaboration could also mean gun to head .
  11. C'mon John that is pretty sad by anyone's standards calling someone a joke is by no means abusive we are supposed to be made of sterner stuff . Thick skinned broad shouldered or supposed to be. However I shall be mindful of my future critism . Has anyone got any spare cotton wool ?
  12. No the game must be developed where ever it's played . What I mean is we have to cater for specific needs to grow the game . The summer experiment has worked for some but not all ,like I have said before we need to identify what works and which the optimum months are for various groups of clubs that's the challenge . The RFL have cocked up with issuing licences to leagues , there should be no such thing just support the leagues in finding solutions not tying their hands behind their backs .
  13. Four seasons . It's simple tailor made leagues for all it's not rocket science .
