Any team that voted to end the season should not be allowed to play in the comp 

I agree but personally I would like the club to tell the RFL to stick it where the sun don't shine

Batley have said 'hope to' not a definite yes. Their participation depends on a number of factors, some of which are as yet unknown eg will, and how many, spectators will be allowed in.

irrespective of all that they have said they 

as a Club we want to play in the Cup competition proposed in October and November 

 so for me that is a yes

as opposed to sheffield

Sheffield Eagles can confirm that the club will not be participating in the Autumn competition

 so for me that is a no

Granted that it's not an outright 'no' but at best it's a 'maybe'. They don't even know if their players will be available....

League Express have stated they understand Toulouse and London won't be competing either.

I think it's a difficult decision for some clubs weighing up what sort of a competition is likely to ensue and whether the financial rewards, as well as the chance for fans and players to get involved with rugby league again, are worth bringing squads back into training, testing, and the possible injuries close to the start of pre-season training for 2021.

   Its not a difficult decision at all to anyone with common sense.Scrap this season now and everyone will know where they stand.Don't expect unlimited crowds for the start of next season although 25/30% of capacity will be OK for us.With costs involved and some areas at risk i can't understand teams wanting to take part in a Hybrid competition of very limited value.

Not sure how you can say that unless you know all the factors involved - when furlough will be withdrawn, how the prize money will be divided out with fewer teams entering, what the likely prospects are of being able to get spectators into the ground later on this year, whether playing games in the autumn might put teams in prime position for recruitment (including players likely to be released from SL teams, or to give players trial time) etc etc. Not to mention we still don't seem to have had a decision on what's happening with SL next year - Toronto allowed to carry on, running with 11 teams, or something else?

If it were not a difficult decision I think we would have seen every club already pull out.

       Only reason most teams have not pulled out is because they wish to offer members somethingiIe Game rather than have to refund money.Although i would estimate over 80% of clubs members would not ask for a refund subject to their financial position.Just my opinion as you know i am never slow to state my point.

I think those points are probably true. I do think the decision to pull out of the Challenge Cup was definitely an easy one. It won't surprise me if this autumn comp ends up being abandoned but think it's probably a more complex decision for some clubs than others.

Add West Wales to Workington earlier today and we're down to 11, and counting.

looking at the list on  TRL there were 12 listed to be undecided but if west wales  Toulouse and London then all that's left is

Undecided: Barrow Raiders, Batley Bulldogs, Bradford Bulls, Dewsbury Rams, Doncaster, Featherstone Rovers, Leigh Centurions, London Skolars, York City Knights

that's nine in total
