Yes, I agree, it's unfair! But it is also unfair on the club that is not allowed to play their best players. I'm aware who is not available, and that they haven't played all year... But that's because they've been with the county team, ordinarily, they would play!!!
If you can't see the unfairness on the club involved, then I'll bow out of this thread, and I will never return, as we'll never see eye to eye on it! Never the twain shall meet!
