Colin Horner says...

There needs to be serious look at the structure of our game for the players from community clubs who develop into the pro game. They are now taken on at U14s in development squads and then hopefully move into the Academy squads. Just then when they need a league to play other academy squads they are left with no games. In the majority of cases they are not physically or mentally developed to break into the first team and if they are not lucky to be picked up by a semi-pro team go back to comunity based clubs. How long will this farce go on before we start to lose very good young talent either to Union, Overseas or away from the game. Come on The RFL get your fingers out.
