I would like a comp that encourages / develops, English qualified players, not 2nd rate foreign bed blockers that populate many teams, Tigers included!Tigerbeat wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 4:03 pmIf you want to watch the development sides next year, there will be plenty opportunity.

They should have made it a true development comp, limit players from the regular first team to those returning from injury, i.e those who have not played for 6 weeks, make it a minimum of 80%+ English qualified players and 60% academy players who have been with the club for over 12 months, teams that cannot fulfill these criteria lose point on a sliding scale, now that would show which teams are developing English talent and those that are shirking and just buying first team success without investing in the future.
Make participation compulsory for entry to the Premiership.
I should stop hoping for sense and foresight, we are talking about rugby administrators after all!
