Can any right minded rugby league fan in the UK tell me Doncaster Dragons can be refused admission
to the second division of the Rugby League as a true member when for the last season playing as a guest

The reasons given by the Board were that our results were not good enough.
How many teams given 17 days notice to form a team and playing with an assortment of amateurs and loan
players could have performed as well?
It is very difficult to sign a player without the security of some form of contract as who was to know whether we
would be allowed into the league at the end of the season.
Would you sponsor a team in the Knowledge that at the end of the season they might still not be allowed
full admitance to the league?
How could we be expected to put up any kind of performance in the cup competitions when we have to play all
our games away from home.

hospitality facilities for the directors and match sponsors equal some premier division clubs.
How come thousands of pounds are being thrown at a bunch of Australian mercenaries who wander from
ground to ground in a city that is patently not interested in the best game in the world and yet we cannot get
Gary Hetherington has done a marvellous job at Sheffield Eagles and no doubt will be able to do even better with
Murdoch's millions but isn't it a pity almost as many people pay to watch Doncaster Dragons as HOME SUPPORTERS
PAY TO WATCH SHEFFIELD EAGLES?
