The majority of Group Nine clubs are supportive of NSW Rugby League introducing a player points index system in all competitions across the state.
However the timeframe has a number concerned.
Plans were revealed for the introduction of a new system in 2022 on Wednesday.
The system is designed to reward clubs for fostering their junior talent and players for their loyalty while trying to limit player movement within the same competition.
As part of the design the last five years of the player's history will be considered and players will be categorised on their highest level in that timeframe.
Reductions are given for each season a player has been at the club.
Players moving between Group Nine clubs will have the highest allocation, generally starting at 25 points in their first season.
All clubs will start on 100 points but that will be reduced depending on how teams finish in future seasons.
The 2022 premiers will only be allowed to use 75 per cent of the quota the following year while the runners-up will be at 80.
The team who finishes third will be able to use 85 per cent, with a five per cent increase for the teams who finish fourth and fifth respectively.
Teams who finish outside of the finals will be given their full allocation.
Southcity football manager Matt Ward can see plenty of upside in the system.
"It is a little bit more work for the club but it is probably going to work in our favour as we try to build our local jumpers," Ward said.
"A lot of other clubs do as well and I don't mind the fact say Temora has two blokes in (Josh) McCrone and (Hayden) Lomax who are going to be nothing as they've developed those players.
"It rewards them."
Tumut co-coach Lachlan Bristow is also a supporter of the idea.
"It promotes clubs to try to develop their locals and bring them through their system rather than other clubs," Bristow said.
"Sometimes it can be hard for those clubs who just don't have that local base and in order to be competitive have to go elsewhere.
"The last thing we want to do is weaken teams in the group, it is hard enough as it is to field a decent team, and gunning for other team's best players can be pretty detrimental so that's a little incentive to go and look elsewhere."
A salary cap is not attached to the system.
It is something Young president Josh Powderly believes is a big plus.
"Hopefully it will eventually even out the Group Nine clubs," Powderly said.
"It may not but I think it is better than a salary cap.
"They're looking after local juniors by not giving them any points."
Not only did Powderly think a salary cap would be too hard to enforce but it would enable clubs to reward players for their loyalty.
"It might mean some of the local juniors coming into first grade might have a better earning capacity as you can't stack your team," he said.
However some clubs have questioned the timing of the plans given how close it is to the season.
Kangaroos were one club questioning the timeframe.
Brothers president Mitch Dunn was another, however he was a big supporter of the concept.
"I think it is good but I don't know if it can be all implemented in one year," Dunn said.
"Clubs have already signed blokes but moving forward I think it is good as it promotes development and you want to be a club that when people come they don't leave anyway.
"It helps that happen too."
Gundagai secretary Martin Hay was the most critical of the plan, especially as it is a proposal that has been rejected by Group Nine clubs on a number of occasions.
"I don't understand why you would bring it in as it only affects the bottom placed sides trying to rebuild," Hay said.
The system also has allowances for clubs in smaller populated towns, however Greater Western and South Western Zone Manager David Skinner confirmed Gundagai, who is the only club with a small enough population, would not be eligible due to their performance in recent years.
The system also applies to reserve grade but with a 50 per cent reduction.
