Not quite the gold, frankincense and myrrh made out earlier in this thread! 

Or even mentioned when enticing the NCL into summer (Remember the earlier vote was against the move and I believe they had 2 votes before going)


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

I agree with your last point about nothing changing for the community game .

Lots of players in the amateur game would be able to step up a standard or two if they could earn half decent money . Plenty of good players have good well payed jobs that stops them having a go at a higher level , due to poor pay etc

I've also seen the amateur/semi pro game in Oz , plenty of young men that could step up a level or two , no problem .

Maybe North America will allow more players to earn a wage playing the game . Games got nothing to lose and plenty to gain if things go well in NA .

 

 

 

If you haven't noticed the amateur game in this country is on it's chin strap, start taking players away you'll end up with less teams to produce players - The RFL need to invest very quickly in amateur development at all standards

I can see the state off the amateur game just as clearly as you .

It will only get worse , see some of my other posts about how young people , parents treat leisure / free time . Youtube, whatsapp , goggle etc etc wouldn't  be losing users anytime soon .

What areas would you use the RFLs money (what money people might ask )cubs , youth , open age , pitches ?

Any sport that stands still will slowly die , allowing young men extra chances to earn some money from the game must be a good thing !

Queensbury havent forfilled their fixtures for the last 2 seasons so cant see how they could get in?

Beverley are a good side do they have juniors?

Their seconds only seem to play when 1st team dont have a fixture

There is a junior set up, called Beverley Braves, I believe they are linked but not 100% sure. Was not aware they had a 2nd team yet but believe it was something they are looking in to. (will have to, to join NCL)

Can't see how Queensbury would get in when they forfeited 3 matches last year.

I'll use Doncaster as an example, when the RFL invested in development Doncaster had three full time development officers (Pete Green, Craig Lawson and Martin Rowlands) between the three they had every school within the district apart from two playing rugby league (population of Doncaster & District 300,000) the development team where also going to areas like Gainsborough, Scunthorpe and Lincoln, now if that's what one development team was doing just think what another 20 teams could do.

There are several well established clubs in the NCL now who don't have a second team. To try and comply with the criteria they operate in the Entry division playing a few games a season.

That's a great result and a credit to the officers.  The thing is they are development officers, when they have got things going the hope is that there will be enough "engaged" local people to pick up the reins and carry on the good work.


Looks like it wer' organised by't Pennine League

I'm sure by now the Dons and local amateur clubs would have benefitted, they also set up a junior side in the Balby area of the town which was doing fine with their help, when the plug was pulled I think Toll Bar and Bentley gain a few juniors from there.

Beverley advertised a 2nd team but could only put out a team when their first team did not have a game 3-4 fixtures at most

Easts seem to be going in the right directions again

Heard today that the NCL were happy with both visits to the clubs in question; especially Beverley. I expect to see them both members of the NCL come 2018.

As I said before Beverley would need to sort their pitch as it is very small

Where are Beverley playing now. When in the NCL before they were at Norwood Park.

a few years ago they were on Flemingate. I described the ground as behind a pub with an upstairs balcony providing some cover and someone who went last year did not recognise my description

When we played there last year it was on the leisure centre; very good changing rooms and pitch overlooked by the potting shed pub which was outstanding. Pitch was on the small side but they tick more boxes than some in the ncl

It is the same place and the name of the pub has changed from Hodgson’s to Potting Shed not the original Norwood ground.Since they started again they play OA at the leisure centre some of their juniors play at Loncroft school. Scott Taylor (Hull FC) coaches with Pat Howdell running the club, he knows people so they should do ok.

Not seen it myself and will stand to be corrected but understand that Queensbury currently have poor changing facilities and a field 1 to 2 miles from where they change, unless they have somewhere else up their sleeves their current facilities don't meet the standard. As I say hands up and apologies if I am wrong.

They play at Ovenden Park now, changing facilities there are decent enough and the changing rooms are by the pitch.
