With reduced squads throughout the league next season ,due to dual registration, success will come to which ever teams can keep key players injury free. Dual registration will give clubs the chance to get even more weekly squad injuries.

I think you've misunderstood the purpose of dual registration - it isn't there for first team squad members, it is there to replace the loss of the u20s side (which was allowed a no. of overage players to play in). So we still have our first team squad PLUS around 9 homegrown players now too old for the new u19s side. We are able to send up to 5 players (from either inside or outside the top 25) to Swinton - so, depending on injuries, there will be quite a few not getting a game every week.
