As soon as the RFL decided to make all SL teams have a reserve team/squad/league and provide each SL team and Bradford £100k to help pay for it we were never ever going to able to compete. Even with the help of the wonderful Supporters trust we can’t afford it. The most wealthy clubs (app art from Bradford) are given £100k to run their reserves and the clubs with very little but want to develop their local talent are tossed aside again.
I wonder what percent £100k is of Fax’s first team budget? I would be happy for the RFL to give £100k to help run a first team squad let alone a reserve team

So are you saying there an additional £100k on offer for running a reserves as well as the £100k for having a category 1 academy? Because a reserves team costs less than £50k, lets be honest.
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

But the Bulls did run an academy https://www.bradfordbulls.co.uk/match/league_table (change the drop-down to "academy") which is why they get funding for a reserve team. Or am I reading it all wrong?


As I understand it there is no separate funding for reserves. Teams who run a tier 1 academy receive 100k of funding towards that, Which they have to match themselves. It is a requirement of receiving that academy funding that they also run a reserves for which they get no extra funding,

The structure with Giants and Huntlet is an informal version of the NRL system used by the clubs there that don’t have dedicated reserves. (Broncos have six affiliated clubs due to geographic area covered).

It’s a logical step for a club, like Fax, that no longer has the resources to pursue promotion to Super league, but make no mistake the top tier club is the puppet master.

The logical RFL next step would be to close promotion to all clubs or those with such an arrangement.

Sad times , we started the reserves and have basically shot ourselves in the foot. Now as already mentioned we are a feeder team to a rival. This is the same concept as in Australia. So all our best players will basically end up at Huddersfield and we will get first option on what they don't want.
Can remember the day when we beat Huddersfield convincingly how this great club has gone backwards.
I know we are been forced by RFL to adopt these rules but we as a club will get no where under this system.
