    1) If a child has the development required and can physically handle it I've got no problem with it; the only wrinkle I see is if that player pushes out an appropriate aged player that then misses...

    Oh absolutely, I agree.

    However it was more directed to the fact that Tamworth aren't in the JDL, and we're playing West Wallsend.

    Yeah I think we're barking up the wrong tree; sapdad was sharing an anecdote from another situation.

    Really?
    If I'd been in this situation I might have struggled not to laugh! I'm guessing they don't use bibs at training?

    Thanks Kitz - that is the way it was explained to me as well.

    In the case that if it was coaches involved - in most cases the coach is also a parent - what would the process be?

    Sorry 'cheese, was a question rather than a statement. My assumption is they *have* solved it.
    My guess is that they are using the more modern synthetic which doesn't cause the same issues. I...

    I did not see a change in football behaviour at all, there were definitely slide tackles. Definitely no burns - admittedly a small sample size (<50 games) - in our players.

    To be fair, Spain gets pretty hot, and it didn't seem to me that it was particularly a problem. And grounds in Australia already using synthetic seem to have solved for this?

    We're going in very cold. Weather has meant lots of washouts and when we did manage to train it was in long grass. Not conducive to getting ready for synthetic.

    My question for NNSWF is how they would grade teams who are NOT splitting their two teams; IE. Clubs that are mixing and matching each week?
