Just indulge me please 🙂

Interestingly a number of local community rugby league club players joined the competition and played during the weeks it was on. 

Looking at this as a positive that touch is helping with league but a negative as it was as a result of their senior fixtures over the weekend being off. 

Buccs are massive, everywhere we goooooo....Boston Buccaneers

For too long we have allowed this variation of the game to be hijacked by union

I think this may the wrong forum for fighting for RL's side.

You're spot on though. Touch is RL without the tackling no matter how much you attempt to pathetically make the play the ball look like a ruck.

🤣 Sorry was typing in a hurry but do the Touch Players get incentives to watch the Titans.

One would hope the Titans and RL clubs everywhere have plans in place to turn Touch and Tag players into regular fans of Tackle RL. That has been one of the themes of this whole thread.

It will be slow going. We have to overturn 20-30 years of treating non-contact forms as totally separate entities.

2 of my Yorkshire Thorns teammates won for England in the European Touch championships at Nottingham this past week in the senior mixed and Mens 30s categories.

Nice one. I actually reffed at the last Euros (2018).  Did France-Wales M30s, and a bit of Women's Open among a load of other games. It was also at Nottingham and a great event to be part of.

Marc Day and Alex Brown?

We won our series 3-2, winning the fifth and deciding game 5-3. Brilliant but am now completely exhausted.

Yes thats them. Well done on the series win. I managed to catch a couple or games and the standard was very high from both teams

The Irish loved to ping a flat cutout ball to a receiver running an unders line at pace. Tricky to tag. They did us like that a few times. 

i thought we got better as the weekend went on after being a bit of a rabble early. The old adage about completing sets applies just as much in tag.

interesting development

Rugby Union clearly now feels that touch is a credible way to generate resource and is looking to take some of the momentum out of the RFL and England Touch joint partnership from earlier this year. 

The Touch Union having separate rules from FIT is going to be something that needs resolving down the line (as the piece says to be fair), but it will be interesting to see how this goes down at our club. 

We are a touch section that plays as part of a union club paying our subs into them. Will the club be looking to move more players our way

Yes its me Cross Coder but this when League and Union should definitely be in it together promoting Touch/Tag as it adds much needed money in the League/Union clubs especially as adult playings are declining.

Mind you the bad side of Touch in my experience is that it's become to combative and tactical these past 5 years and some times resembles a game of Netball and have seem 75% of my ex club leave as apart from knackered knees etc they don't find it fun it was Social Touch.

Thats a good point you make there. 

I find inter club competitions much better as the ball is chucked around and there is not so much structure in terms of running channels and high press defence (as we aren't fit enough to do it!)

Some of the other stuff I have seen and been part of has been less fun based on really tactical and teams just mark each other out of the game. This leads to limited breaks of the line and low scoring.
