I suspect it will be more of the same as last season with certain sides playing the system to their advantage and getting away with it.

On a personal level numbers look good for us (Ilkley 3's) we've 23 available so far for the first game with some to return. I won't lie though its an effort engaging folk.

we have 36 players going on a bus to Ripon tomorrow. At the begining of last season our 2s only had about ten available so an encouraging start.

We’ve got 15/16 going with our 2nds tomorrow which is an improvement on the 9/10 we traveled with at some points last season. Nearly 30 unavailable this week for whatever reason but seems to be the same every week, people aren’t making rugby a priority any more. Pre Covid we had the numbers to put a 3rd team together, last season we could barely put 15 out for the 2’s, especially away from home.

Aire have got 2 teams out today for the first time in a long while. Lots of ex juniors which has kept us afloat. Both playing at home to try and rebuild the atmosphere around the club.
