Championship club calls for more flexibility as they are denied reserves team

Keighley Cougars have confirmed that they had a reserves team knocked back recently but have applied again.

They have asked the RFL to be more flexible to meet the IMG proposals.

This comes after a fan Q and A event:

“We applied to be allowed a Reserves on Tuesday of this week. Ryan confirmed we have been knocked back before on the Reserves, however now we can apply by way of compliance with IMG proposals. We therefore have asked the RFL to be more flexible so we can progress as a club.”

The club meanwhile have lost their dual registration deal with Hull KR and the club explained why in the following statement:

“The dual reg relationship we had with Hull KR was fairly informal and built on trust between Rhys and Willie Peters. The relationship ending, was half expected, but KR’s player pool was fairly depleted and KR are making a go of the reserves league, and there was talk of the relationship being pulled 3-4 weeks earlier.

“In a positive, it gives Jy-mel and the coaching staff chance to use their own connections and explore other relationships.”
