Dual-reg­is­tra­tion sys­tem is a mess

The Rugby Paper - - Letters | Views -

IT is to­tally un­fair that some Na­tional League sides can ben­e­fit from close ties with Premier­ship clubs while oth­ers sim­ply can­not.

If I was a Hull Io­ni­ans player or sup­porter I would be out­raged.

How can it be fair that Lough­bor­ough para­chute in ten Tigers on dual-reg­is­tra­tion to avoid the drop to Na­tional Two?

Premier­ship clubs just have too much con­trol. They should have no say in how the Na­tional Leagues are run. Time that the RFU fought harder for their mem­ber clubs. SAM RI­LEY via email
