with only 2 wins from a 26 game season, it's not hard to understand this... I cannot see why West Wales are not following this and looking to return in 2020/21.

Yep, those two teams don't belong in League 1 unfortunately, and I don't think they're really learning anything from getting hammered every week that they don't play each other.

West Wales have appointed Kim Williams as their new head coach for 2019. He was the former high performance manager of Melbourne Storm and has won the Queensland Cup with Mackay Cutters. Very good appointment for the Raiders. Hopefully they can make a better go of it next season.

I hope so but seriously doubt it, even the gulf in class between them and Skolars/Coventry is massive. Why not put them in a league they can compete in, until they learn the ropes?

I don't know what sort of financial backing West Wales have especially after the season they have just had but hopefully with a Queensland cup winning coach on the way, he can attract and secure a few players who will help get some wins in the forthcoming season however as Grimmy has said, I seriously doubt it.

West Wales Raiders will be significantly improved in 2019 and upto Championship One standards, 2018 was a transition period for them.

Sad news re Hemel, they have been a great success at Junior and Amateur level.

Its more of a sad reflection on the poor financial state of lower tier RL than it is on the Hemel club, and hopefully they'll be back.

Shame for Hemel.
They built correctly from the bottom upwards.
Bad mistake moving training first to Dewsbury and then to Sheefield.
Hopefully training back in Hemel will get them back on track over the next couple of years.

Writing was on the wall when they first relocated their training to Dewsbury and then Sheffield.

But The RFL have to take some responsibility for this. They admitted Hemel, All Golds and Oxford in 2013 with the idea that League One was going to be a Development League. Then within a year or two they padded out League One with more teams and subsequently the gap between the top and bottom of that League was huge. It had to stay as a Development League really but that ship has sailed now.
