GMS already requires clubs to nominate their 1st team players, so seems decision already made.
Question is is, whats to stop them changing as and when it suits them??

Absolute wensleydale.
if you cannot see the train coming down the line  you will struggle to step out of the way.
Result
Less clubs and fewer players. Great foresight from the Blazers at Twickers.

Long time since I posted but this subject is very close to my heart. Imo it would be nothing short of catastrophe for clubs like North Ribb with the likes of wharfedale, Ilkley and Kirkby Lonsdale mopping up players that clubs like us need to retain. If the RFU and their blinkered blazers are intent on pushing this through against the wishes of the majority of clubs( mainly grassroots as we are) why dony they just come out and say it in terms we all understand.
I for one will have nothing to do with it and will walk away from Rugby as it would undermine every ethos I feel the game stands for. It will indeed be a sad day but I fear "The end for our game is nigh"

Mopping up players, Flaggy ? Wharfedale yes, but KL and Ilkley ? Happy New Year by the way !
