After the disappointment of not being accepted into the NCL Bramley Buffaloes are looking forward to a brand new challenge in the Yorkshire Mens League.
The Yorkshire Mens League has yet to be finalised but with some positive feedback from the RFL the Buffaloes are expected to be competing in the Premier division in 2013.
The new Buffaloes Head Coach Steven Gill, appointed just before Christmas, commented “This has been a frustrating time for me and the club as, whilst we aren't going to be competing in the NCL, I'm very much looking forward to the new challenge that lies ahead in the form of the Yorkshire Mens League.
"I have spoken to the majority of last season’s squad and there’s a good buzz. Hopefully with some other quality additions it could be a successful season for the Buffaloes"
“There are lots of rumours about the club’s demise however the committee and I have some exciting plans for the future of the club which will hopefully see the Buffaloes on an upward path for the next few years,” continued Gill.
The first pre-season training session is on Wednesday 6th February at Stanningley RL starting at 6.45. New and old players are all welcome.

With the glass ceiling to Super League being removed from next season, the path to the top flight opens up for Cumbria once again.
The Super League play-offs in their current form may attract some criticism, but they are keeping the season alive for several clubs in the bottom half.
The bonus point system, that has been in place in the Championships for the past eight seasons, is on the agenda for possible inclusion in Super League next year.
