Hmm, well, no doubt there'll still be the odd blank - bloodied shirts, torn shirts.

A couple of months ago, I asked Emma Rosewarne if 1-17 was mandatory or not and she said it was. So I asked her why only three teams that week had played your traditional 1-13, plus 14-17 as subs, the previous weekend. Point made.

The problem is that jerseys are much more fitted these days. We've had loads of duplicates made - ending up with 28 jerseys - so where's the cost saving ? :?

When it was decided to go to squad numbers some clubs weren't overly keen on the idea, I think it was Salford who put it forward and pushed for it originally.

I think if a club wants to go with squad numbers they should be allowed to, but it has to be done properly, as there was a situation where dual reg players were wearing different numbers on different weeks, but if a club just want to have 1-17 for cost saving or whatever that should also be fine, it'll be upto each club to make that decision then

I say again - the cost saving is illusory.

RFL relax rules on stadia to help current clubs keep licenses.

So that's finances and stadia - criteria ignored to save "iconic" clubs. It really is a disgusting self-interested clique.

Remind me of the thread title again?
