Honest Opinions Only...

Right so I am sure any avid forum users or club officials will be aware of this. Who is this catering for? I see no appetite for this across any of the clubs I have travelled to. WPL 2's will be mopping up all other lower league clubs talent and it will spoil what is a fantastic Yorkshire league set up.

This is a threat to community rugby and it must be stopped!

Not really crossed anyone who backs this whole heartedly.

I attended one of the evenings held at Old Brods last year that was hosted by Andy Fradgley and Dave Towler I think about proposed plans/ideas. Plenty of opposing voices to what was being proposed only to be dismissed, appeared we were there as a box ticking exercise.

I get the game faces problems but cutting travelling distance down and number of games will further put people off. The lads I am involved with want more games and better structure.

It was being pushed by Jim Chapman and his gang 3-4 years ago.
It was clear right from the off what they were pushing for. They did not like the resistance they came up against.
A classic case of when they want our opinion, they'll give it to us.
