Surely Australia is different on the basis that its common to earn a very good fulltime salary playing outside of the NRL, you might get the odd championship player earning a good living but the majority are part time, there`s just not the money over here for that, not to mention the majority of those competitions are made up of clubs that are feeder clubs to NRL clubs, wholly owned and operated by those organisations in most situations.


Of course, it's different but if you want to match it then you have to come up with an edited version of it that suits ourselves. Straight P&R is not it.

Because he's being realistic and you're clinging to dogma. If Covid has done anything it's put the Championship even further behind the SL, the gap is now enormous. Doesn't matter whether you like it or not it's a fact. I've been waching the game for 40 years and I remember a time when a promoted club could actually go on and win the comp within a season or two, not a chance now,. It's a different world and that pomantic part of the game is dead, I wish it wasn't but it is.

So case study Fev.

The pitch slopes, not just a bit but a lot, this is totally unacceptable for an SL club. That would cost their first year's players budget to sort.

The floodlights are totally inadequate.

The ground still only holds 7,000 I believe, 3000 short.

The club lacks all the basics of a junior setup.

Its corporate support and facilities virtually non-existent when compared to top SL clubs.

Featherstone is not even a town it's a village, even if you tag on Pontefract it's not a huge catchment area and it's one it shares with two existing SL clubs.

Fev has never in their entire history been a fully professional club, those involved have very limited experience, at least Leigh has had a few goes at it.

And so on.

Of course a lot of the above applies to us and Cas but as they say, possession is 9/10 of the law. We are lacking as a SL club but nowhere near as lacking as Fev.

P&R in its historical sense is dead, we sold that bit of heritage when we took the SKY coin, but like all dinosaurs, it's taken a long time for the tail to get the message to the brain.


It's a TOWN, perhaps you're confusing it with the Village in Staffordshire called Featherstone the home of HMP Featherstone. nice neighbours.

You could message his partner Girdlegirl with that news if you want, though I think they do a lot of hobby ironing in the evenings... :D

Unlike the Staffordshire establishment, the West Yorkshire one is of the "open" kind.

I meant in a population sense, pathetically literal even for you, grow up.
