Interesting decision....good that they will partake in the u18 competition, but runs a real risk of losing players to other clubs once they hit 18 that aren’t quite ready to play Canterbury Cup and don’t want to hang around playing in NZ competitions.

I suppose the objective is to keep the best teenagers and allow the late bloomers to make on their own

The cynical side of me thinks they see this as a shorter competition in length so less costs....

The cream of the crop, those that haven't been poached before they are 16, will still be contracted to the club just like they are with the Jersey Flegg team so I don't think that will be a problem but do agree that some parents will prefer seeing them play tougher competition. If done right I reckon this could breed harder more battle toughened players just like the kids that came through Lion Red Cup and BarterCard but they must get it right...
