Not been on here or to a game for a while but it seems the same things being posted that always were.

Players show promise and are poached due to the contracts being as watertight as the Titanic.

I can't find the post but I commented that any form of academy was pointless unless we could produce players quicker than other clubs could poach them.

I think the time has long since arrived where we have to cut our losses.

A team in the league being competitive is good for Wales RL.
A team getting murdered every week is not.

I think a change of plan is needed and maybe loading the South West Conference with as many South/West Welsh clubs as possible and look to dominate that.
Then, and only if the funding is there to do so, we might see a semi pro club grow organically from that.

The answer is basically down to money and throwing as much at it as is possible.
If we produce any players they are taken by bigger clubs unless equal and even more money is given to them also.
