Wakefield Trinity Wilcats & Hull FC are not happy.

https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/sport/r ... se-2259347

Hull FC and Wakefield Trinity have both come out swinging and insist they will run reserve teams next year despite a lack of interest from other Super League clubs.

But the rest of Super League has not bought in, much to the disappointment of FC Chief Executive James Clark, who has heavily criticised Hull’s rivals, especially those carrying marquee players in their squad next year.

“Each club has their own business principles, but marquee players should only be allowed if clubs can field an Academy, reserves and are profitable,” Some clubs are spending upwards of £150,000 on individual players, while facing financial uncertainty and even unable to form an Academy. Clark told League Express.

Wakefield owner Michael Carter has also spoken of his frustration with the rest of the top tier and he revealed how much running a reserves will cost Trinity next year.

don’t think it’s right that a club can employ one, or even two, marquee players but not have £30,000 spare – because that’s how much it’s cost us.”

The Rugby Football League have explained their disappointment at the lack of uptake in regards to the reserve grade for next season, but stopped short of stating a second team will be compulsory in 2020.

Edited for accuracy, no longer are we called Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

As I've just said on the Wakefield board, a reserve team should be mandatory for any club in SL.

A Stadium fit for purpose should be mandatory for any club in Superleague.

I do not disagree with you but I don't think anyone can deny the fact we're attempting to have that sorted, Rome wasn't built in a day lil boy.

Wigan aren't happy either, publicly stated that the number of teams in the reserve league isn't enough to give players game time to develop them. The fact that there are more Championship clubs with reserve teams than Super League ones is a farce.

Is there not scope to put SL reserves (the ones that can be bothered) into League 1 in 2020? They would be of a similar level and bring as many fans as many of the League 1 clubs, probably more than some. Obviously leave them out of the play offs.

Well until they actually ya know, govern the sport and make it mandatory, then they will continue to be disppointed. In fact in 12 months time it wouldn't surprise me if the reserves are scrapped all together. Why should Bradford, Halifax and Wakey fund reserves, for not many fixtures while other SL clubs don't but then splash out on marquee signings as MC says.

The fact academies aren't even mandatory is an untenable position for the RFL. What would they do if all clubs decided to scrap academies like Salford have done. No production line = no game.
