4 of the likely 17 in next week's World Cup Final will have come from that academy.

I honestly believe we have the best academy in the world.

Our academy? It is a shining light and it makes me very proud.


That's a very fair point Billy, though I can's see that, logistically, Toronto would be able to utilise it for Canadian youngsters and nor would we be particularly keen on losing our best young players to them before we've even had a couple of years out them for ourselves. Particularly over the next year when Toronto will be in the Championship, as they will be competing for exactly the same lads as ourselves. Going forward a couple of years and Noble's side may well be in SL so the dynamics would obviously change.

I'm trying not to be too negative about our chances, but I suspect Toronto may well have bought themselves into SL within the next two years or so, whilst we, if we ever do get back, will be some considerable time afterwards, which, again, would put us on the backburner for recruiting our own academy lads to actually play for the Bulls. Whilst I'd fully expect Nobby to do the logical thing and set up his own academy, in Canada, for Canadian talent (and wouldn't the RFL expect the same?), I hope our academy is nothing to do with the deal, to be honest.

Looks to translate as "Bradford Bulls will DR with TWP" to me.....

TWP can’t dual reg players as far as i’m aware, due to them being on Canadian work visa’s. Hence them signing a load of trialists last season then getting shut of them early in the year because they were never going to get a game.

RFL 'You need an academy to get into SL'
TWP *shuffles papers* 'We have one! We err just decided to call it 'Bradford Bulls'

What an utter f**king let down..... thought it was about time we had some crappy news...

I would think they will want to use Tong training facilities when they are over as well.

Whatever. If we're running a joint reserves side then I think it can work for us.

Being fobbed off like we were with Widnes last season and it's less good.

Thinking about it, I am against the dual reg. It felt like we are starting to rise again. Under our own steam, on our own two feet. Slowly, but it was us; our work.

We know DR's never truly benefit anyone but the higher team.

Once WCCs now feeder team to a North American experiment who can access the only jewel still shining brightly in our crown.

I genuinely don't have an issue with it. If we keep harking back to the WCC days with every decision the club makes then we are never going to move forward. The facts are, experiment or not, Toronto would knock us out of the park in a proper fixture every single time with the players they have and we are in the bottom tier of professional Rugby League. How beneficial it is, time will tell. On the face of it, it seems to be a lot more thought out than last year’s rush job duel reg with Widnes (I had to look up who it was with, as Leeds seem to be of more assistance to us last year). Not the be all and end all, and it could well be the difference come the end of the year, especially with our of favour players who don’t fancy being in Canada for 2 months at a time.
