it doesnt fit well with the league structure with its promotion and relegation and players contracts.

On the other hand, Thomas the Elder, some of the more open minded die hards amongst us might see representative league/cup rugby at District/County/Region (of Origin) level as a really interesting marketing opportunity for a competition which, played out on a Sunday to allow supporters to watch their clubs and their own selected players, might complement a league structure regionalised from Level 3 down rather nicely Wink!

Whatevr is said on this thread the County Championship is a distraction for the Clubs and the points made about Redruth, Fylde and lack of first team selection because of the County Bun Fight may pushsome Clubs into the relegation pile if the games they are in are not played with full strength squads.
 
Can you see Woppet letting his players off to play for Cheshire when his ability to remain at National 1 could be affected on 4th May?
 
Wharfedale have a string of important games at the end of the season with a game away to Cambridge and home to Rosslyn Park and then Cov.
 
Their season may be defined when they play Macclesfield but if points are required by Macc when they play Fylde who will be sending out a virtual second team then the County Bun Feast will be affecting other Clubs.
 
I do like the comment that without the County Championship how will Nellie do his recruiting?  Mind you he is nothing short of being resourceful and I am sure he will find a way.

As mentioned on Fylde website in Macc match review.....'some players are unavailable due to other commitments'....,,, The mere fact that the Lancs game was not directly referred to indicates the awkwardness felt at The Woodlands. At the end of the day if Fylde win with a mix and match team there will be no gripe from anyone but if that doesn't happen there is a real case of Fylde disrespecting all that league rugby stands for. Purely and simply they owe it (as do all teams with games this Sat), to all teams in the league to field their usual squad. We know they won't as Lancs come first and to hell with a meaningless fixture. Do they really give a hoot as to whether Macc or Wharfedale go down? Of course not. To spin it by saying the league was scheduled to finish last week and there are no contractural agreements in May is too simplistic. Not all Fylde players are on salaried contracts I'm sure. Some will be only paid when they play, some who no doubt will forego a weeks money for a County appearance . Or will the 'back in the day' boot money even make a compensatory appearance at Durham.

Yeh right Rough Toilet Paper. 'Strongest team available' as I think you will see when the respective Fylde & Lancs squads are announced tomorrow. Thumbs Up

How dare you make such an assumption!? On what basis do you say this? Is there any evidence we have chosen weak squads in such circumstances in previous seasons? Do please tell me.

Apologies if my opinions are regarded as assumptions AF. As you say, let's see when the teams are announced and I, and others on this forum, will have to eat our words when the Fylde squad is similar to last weeks.

What sauce do you prefer to aid your digestion OF? My count suggests that 13 of Fylde's starting line-up will be senior Lancashire caps.

Mmmmm, there's senior caps and SENIOR caps . More illuminating would be how many of last weeks starting 15 are in the match day squad at Macc.

I believe that no Fylde players are in Lancashire's squad for Saturday. The great majority of the Fylde squad at Macc will be players who have started in the 1st team in the past month, with two 1st choice players returning after injury and a couple suffering new injuries at Esher and not featuring.

You are so wrong. As we're generous we'll accept your apology in due course. Wink

Having seen the way the Lancashire set up has been skewed to benefit one clubs ambitions, perhaps other Lancs clubs would be within their rights to say that you've made your bed, so you better lie in it? Or are the rest of the clubs more generously natured despite having been treated like s**t by the LRFU over the last few seasons.

seem to be plenty of people queuing up to fire off some of their pent-up 'Fylde-byle' [TM] on this issue. bit inconvenient that the facts as outlined by allan don't really fit in with the comments people, mostly anonymous, are making...

Care to expand?

Preston has benefited from LCRFU for years.

Without that little college up the road I wonder where Hoppers would be?

Interesting that a member of this seasons Yorkshire U20's finds himself part of the Lancs senior squad.
