Well, as far as I am concerned, this country runs a free market in businesses, if you run a business, it's your risk, doesn't matter if your sole trader, partnership of a Ltd,, company. Provided you are registered & comply on all legal laws & pay taxes there is no barring.
Also, if the rfl, want to spread the game so more & more people partake then, what the Hell, is the reason they are doing this for.
It is restrictive practices which can or should be challenged via laws & parliament !
However, all sports I in this country have members & teams agreeing to comply with the sport in question & it's rules !
But, this body has to comply with the laws of the land & not discriminate, which they are doing by choosing who can & who cannot !
So, once again the rf L are not serious in fairness or total spread of the game, they are selective in maintaining the status quo !
Therefore, we are a parochial sport & will remain so, only the favoured will be allowed !

:lol: I found this on the RFL site,I’ve inserted a couple of relevant paragraphs. Interesting that Salford and Leigh have applied, but one club has been refused because they are outside of SL.

Funding, reserves & reviews: How the academy system moves forward post-COVID

18th March 2021 James Gordon Pick, Super League 0
We’ve mandated the academy licence application to say they must run Under 18s and reserves from 2022, so we can get the programme back to where it needs to be. It’s a transitional year, it’s not ideal, but it’s the best we can make out of the situation.”

At the end of this year too, the academy licenses will be reviewed. It is believed that Salford and Leigh have submitted applications to join the party, while at least one other club has been turned away due to not being in Super League.

The funding model

Currently there are two clubs outside the top flight running category one academies – Bradford and Newcastle. A third, Widnes, decided do disband theirs at the end of 2020 citing the uncertainty over the funding which is largely controlled by Super League clubs.

Their experience of this post the club’s administration in 2019, when more than £80,000 in funding – earned by the success of their academy – was withheld in a vote of the 12 top flight clubs.


'at least one other club has been turned away due to not being in Super League'. Unless I'm interpreting this wrong, then how come Bradford, Newcastle and London are in line to get one?

We’ll, on Monday night during the Q&A, his phone rang, he said the decision on the Academy’s license had just been delayed by 10 days to the 21st of May, saying something Althea lines he didn’t think much of the reason given for the delay. I’ve watched the Full 80 minutes prog on YouTube recently, Mick Gledhill consistently says he believes London, Newcastle and Bradford will be given an Academy license. If he thinks that, then obviously some SL clubs will miss out. I know Mick Gledhill sometimes gets it wrong, but this time I’ve a feeling he’s close to home.


And the academies or, lack of them, may be a deciding factor as to who gets to play in the all new super league, when the restructure is announced ?
Are Trinity being forced out of the top flight ??

There is a stench all around this and not for the first time, clubs like ours seem to be on the receiving end.

They should be encouraging more clubs to have academies regardless of the league they're in.

Only in Rugby League!

Exactly, the more Academys...the more oppurtunities for young lads to have a career in the game, more lads staying in the game, bigger talent pool...The list of positives is endless, ludicrous decision to tell clubs they cant run one.

Looking at Gledhill 's tweet, he's very much if it affects Bradford negatively then it's SL greed or he is depressed with the direction of the game.

On that basis I'm guessing Bradford haven't got a license.

Nor should they over a SL club. It’s the professional competition and it should be mandatory.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

We’ve got a license. Great news for us obviously but it doesn’t make the RFL’s ridiculous decision to do this in the first place right.
