RFL reject Keighley application to join revamped reserves competition for 2020

Keighley reserves coach Dean Muir is “deeply upset” that the Rugby Football League has turned down the club’s application to join the returning reserves competition next year.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Surely the more clubs involved the better it is for the game, The RFL continue to hold the game back

They've, Keighley, been running a reserve squad when SL teams haven't that's the annoying part!

Keighley reserves turned down now.
Application for a Manchester RL club turned down despite having numerous wealthy backers.
Things happen in threes, I wonder what the next crackpot decision the RFL will make!

Keighley, like halifax would be good for rugby league and, I personally, would love them in super league...... unfortunately they are not cats, london or toronto...... it wasnt long ago that fax were the srcond best supported team in the top division and the cougars were regularly getting 10 k plus crowds........ maybe im old fashioned but i miss the likes of them
