quick question, over the weekend they stated that Kata was playing Canterbury cup, is that a level below this? or even worse?
cheers, I thought the Jersey Flegg was different to ISP so got myself confused. It would be good if a comp could keep the same name for more than 2 seasons so I didnt have to think so hard.
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...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.
