The answer is having something in place to keep young promising players in west Cumbria  to develop.  Easier said than done but only that can counter the need to pay silly money to try and get a higher standard of player to travel up to WC.

Barrow seem to be running a good youth system with the help of the amateur clubs and coach's in the Barrow area, and after 3/4 years it has shown that it was worth the effort, they now have some of these youngsters stepping up to the first team.

Correct me if I'm wrong but is Barrow youth system not just Furness College rugby team?

But SL clubs would still pick them up from amateur level before they get to the A team. A west cumbrian academy would be better. Not cheap and not easy but it would be better long term than having  to chuck daft money at out of county players to take a club to the next level.
