Well my ancient sloth I think the Rfu are trying to say .... if you can spend twenty squillion quid on a fat gormless pug nosed bald gobby ‘has been’ who has a list of excuses for failure bigger than Jeremy Corbyn’s communist ethnically sourced nuclear free diversity supporters commune then we aren’t giving you any brass . I think they are also saying we’ve had enough of the tax dodging deceitfullness involved .

Like old Red I really aren’t that fussed if anyone gets paid for personal services or servicing . Is this possible to Police ... No . Will it be Policed ... No  ... because it’s all going to be done with brown envelopes tucked in boots or by some other ingenious and marvellously skullduggerous method . Back to the 1970’s ( a bit like Corbyn ) Up the revolution brothers ..

Correct. In 1974, deep in the amateur era, I played in an high profile invitation game. A Wesh international of the day was asked for his "expenses" after the game. He asked for, and was given without a quibble, the equivalent of a week's wages.

Spot on RH.

Another example from a different sport before athletics went open and athletes were allowed trust fund. One kiwi 1500 meter running spend the summer living in London and running all over europe, he only claimed expenses. His expenses were always the same a full first class air fare from New Zealand to The UK plus the cost of a week in the London Hilton.

I have to agree with Alf that’s exactly what the RFU are trying to do. Whether they will have the will and energy to see I through is another matter. However getting four officials to verify the club’s annual return is a clever move.
If you can afford to pay then do so and admit it to the RFU and HMRC. Don’t try and pretend that your ageing rugby league star has joined your club because he has always been a closet fan.

Where are all these vacancies advertised?

The adverts can now be seen on the County website, under the coaching tab

I understand the 10k limit at Level 6 and below is for a player/coach, so a coach who isn’t a registered player can get whatever the club wants to give them. Presumably to stop some clubs having 3 player coaches, a Fijian physio, Kiwi medic and a bar full of Samoan waiters.

Can anyone explain why the 10K cap has been introduced? The game went pro a couple of decades ago. Putting a cap on anything merely encourages avoidance / evasion. Ask anyone living in a fishing port what "black fish" are, for example.

Red

Aye aye sir I’ll give it a go ...( I genuinely used to own a fishing vessel so am cognisant with black fish -remain mystified however  why every person on a quayside has no crockery to urinate into)

Here’s the explanation for Rfu diktat ..

To be on Rfu committees (other than coaching) and particularly pertinent to finance you must have a chin commencing behind your bottom set of dentures ( not note debentures) that falls unmajestically to your Adams Apple, ladies included ( only kidding before someone sets the thought police on me) !
The angle of dangle on your chin should not exceed 45 degrees and must be equilateral .

You must have attended a recognised public school and have appropriate quals regarding light spanking and industrial sodomy .

It is essential you are opinionated ( but not knowledgeable or experienced) and acutely capable of waffle, oneupman ship, self preservation and own job protectionism creation .

You must have played a game once for a ‘recognised’ club ie Godalming casual 4 XV

You must have an old school tie with  gold included thereon and a link to ‘someone ‘ in the city , the House of Lords, or Boris Johnson. At school you should have passed Latin and Divinity as a minimum .

Finally and this is the most important thing ... you must be called Tarquinius toffeenosed tosspottngton .... Or a recognised equivalent.

Hope this assists ....

There's no cap of £10,000 on coaching and no limit on payment to players.

it's simply that the RFU are not providing as much financial support to the club's that pay more than a given amount

I assume it's because they think that if these clubs have enough money to pay that amount it would be better off supporting clubs who are not as well off.

Also I suspect they think it would be throwing good money after bad.
