As the 'lesser code' club (your words not mine) are far more successful and YC were mere tenants who ruined the pitch quality each winter can you blame them.

This 'lesser code' attitude is typical of the RFU elite. - Rugby League is a different sport - the split happened a 100 years ago - get over it.

Incidentally, I would say League is one of the biggest factors for there being a paucity of Northern clubs in the top 3 levels - as it is basically a Northern game that doesn't really exist in this country outside of Lancashire and Yorkshire.
Agreed.
Except that Warrington, Newcastle, Barrow, Workington,  Crusaders, London Skolars, London Broncos, Coventry, Raiders, Whitehaven (and Toulouse, Catalans, and Toronto) may well disagree with your closing statement (and that's just at the top three levels of the game).

Nicely played there on ducking where Raiders play now/this week! Seriously I don't know off the top of my head and I'm a Rugby League World subscriber! I do know that they *have* played in Merthyr, Mountain Ash, Caerphilly, Maesteg, Neath and Blackwood RFC while on their travels...
Ducking nowt pal. None of those locations are in Yorks or Lancs.

Oh yes, I forgot that Widnes is also in Cheshire, so that's another.

(Yeah yeah. I know. Both it and Warrington were once part of Lancs...)

I did say in this country - Crusaders are in Wales whilst the 3 in brackets are in France & Canada - non of the others are playing at the top level

That's why I put them in brackets, and you did say at the top three levels.

A friend from a several generation Wigan entrenched family gave up his 8 season tickets some five yrs ago. He told me about 18mths ago that he could see some SL teams going semi pro in the near future. He's involved at the top end of the biggest amateur RL club in Wigan and has mentioned the lack of players, unheard of ever in the games heartland. The Wigan v Saints derby has always been the barometer on this side of the Pennines which hasn't sold out in yrs, this year was less than 2/3 full. Change is required across both codes to keep things ticking, union needs a rethink below the Prem for the greater good.

What I actually said was League was a reason for the paucity of Northern Clubs in the top 3 levels (rather than levels 2 & 3 as stated further up the thread)

I'm not sure how you read this as the top 3 levels of league when the discussion is about Union. It is obvious this refers to the top 3 levels of Union

And my initial reply was to the bit that stated "basically a Northern game that doesn't really exist in this country outside of Lancashire and Yorkshire".
Anyway, pointless. I'm out.

Saw in a recent webinar Phil Davies was suggesting the core of his squad could be students from Leeds Beckett. As Loughborough discovered National One is too tough for a predominantly students side.

'As Loughborough discovered National One is too tough for a predominantly students side'. 

True once BUCS Super Rugby started a couple of years or so ago because the level of the mid week game rose exponentially from the regular BUCS fixtures but Luff students actually survived for a number of years in Nat 1 before then.

I would say that they'd be potentially up a certain creek if there are no students at Leeds Beckett in September, although I suppose in that scenario the season probably wouldn't be able to start either.

Spot on - with many universities only providing virtual lectures over the Internet the students won't be there.

Will this also affect Loughborough Students?

I think if rugby restarts, Loughborough will find a way to bring the team to campus, even if not all other students do. 

But even though lectures are going on line, a lot of small group and lab work will still need to be face to face - so many students will need to return to campus.

That’s a real shame for the staff and players but probably inevitable given the current climate

Not st all surprised - I think they should have moved it to Doncaster when Leeds failed to fund it.

The bigger question is what happens to Leeds?
