If the part time teams go to Toulouse later in the season, why can't London?

Because they are FT and therefore have no reason not to play now and let their comrads play later in the season.

Or the season can just be cancelled again and the SL clubs can pick next seasons whipping boys again?

So London are the only club expected to travel to Toulouse to play? Is the reason for that literally because they are the only fully pro team? Sorry but thats preposterous, why should that make things

The RFL needs to re-think it's decision for three reasons: Firstly, it does discrimate against full-time clubs in the championship, if there is a requirement for then to go to France and not part

I've no issue with that..... if you want to comment on that feel.free on that thread. This thread is about London broncos owd cock

now part time players who have outside interests from the sport do not get this exemption they have to isolate for 10 days so that's time off work sat at home without pay while full time players can sit at home in  a 5 day isolation and still get a full pay packet

Not sure that is entirely correct. The RFL did define the Championship and League 1 as Elite sport (though did delay their start in terms of training as a precaution). But it  would imply that both professional and semi-professional players would be covered by the definition of being elite.

You can argue that semi-pro don’t meet the definition as ‘derived living’ but Govt guidance does not make a distinction (or any comment about sports people with outside interests). As an elite sport there would be no distinction sporting wise in the guidance between pro and semi-pro so the policy of 5 day quarantine with PCR test on 5th day applies equally.

The Govt guidance does not cover the economic impact on those with regular jobs and that is a real issue for semi-pro sports people. That is where in setting the position the RFL has created the issue that Broncos are claiming

 

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

That's where the misunderstanding comes in It's not covid it's the governent who are allowing what they call elite clubs by that they mean full time to travel abroad then when they  come back   they  have to isolate for 10 days however  because they are in a bubble it can be reduced to 5 days if they pass a covid test so as not to jepordise future games  but they can only go to training and games they are still not allowed to leave their homes and do normal thing for the stipulated 10 days 

now part time players who have outside interests from the sport do not get this exemption they have to isolate for 10 days so that's time off work sat at home without pay while full time players can sit at home in  a 5 day isolation and still get a full pay packet

so the RFL listened to the government guidelines and postponed 2 part time reams from travelling and allowed a full time team to participate 

 

I thought the RFL had requested to have the championship and league removed from the elite sport list. So I don’t think any of the clubs come under the elite sport banner.

I have read that the RFL asked to change the status of the Championship but looking at the Gov's website there is no longer a list of exempt 'elite' sporting competitions (probably due to changes in quarantine and bubble rules) but a definition of an 'elite sportsperson' as one who derives a living from sport. PT players are unlikely to come under that.

I’m not sure the term elite sport in this context has anything to do with being full time professional. My daughter does a bit of sports photography and during the last lockdown went to some fairly low level women’s football with some of the teams amateur but they were able to play because the women’s FA cup was classed as elite sport.

That's true but I was told at the time  that elite 1 status  for  2020 season  was given to all RL clubs because at the time there was no quarantine involving travel to france that allowed teams to travel to games then straight back home in an organised league but  to stop teams like  FEV lions going on a jolly to france to play a couple of games tour

 I was also told later on that this all changed this season and elite 1 was removed from  for the championship and part time players when the government brought in the traffic light quarantine rules
