"scrapping of the unders" - is that the U20's team you have scrapped then?

 

As far as i know although I think everyone is waiting to see what plans the RFL come up with becuase there have been rumours of it been changed to U23's. As it stood my thoughts on the system are that it were totally pointless, any good players are snapped up at a very early age by the SL teams which leaves the rest to scrap for the remaining players and for the most part they will not make it in fact I am struggling to think of many clubs at our level that bring through players from their unders. Then the SL clubs discard the players who will not make it at that level and they are usually snapped up by Champ clubs if deemed good enough but for most of them who will be over 19 they are simply on the scrap heap.

What rugby needs is for the SL teams to have a 'B' team playing in the Championship 1 to allow their homegrown players to get game time :(

Why do we allow these donkeys to run and ruin our sports?

Don't your fans raise a lot of funds for the U20s?

supporters trust raises in excess of £25,000 each season to run the u20 team.
