Does anyone have any idea how much teams are awarded for progression in the cup competitions, winning the AP, finishing higher in the table etc?

In football thatís all incremental albeit exponential for champs league etc

I am trying to suss out the impact of under performance from a revenue perspective and canít seem to find much info

My understanding is that PRL split monies pretty equally, to frustration of bigger clubs, but the smaller clubs vote together in their interests.

Anecdotally the LV Cup was said to be worth more in terms of prize money than the Champions Cup! I donít recall specific amounts being made public for either though.

But its no longer the LV Cup and it would be fair to assume that no sponsor equals less prize money.

last year's AW money was

Pool winners £19500 +VAT

Semi winners £20,000 +VAT

Losing finalist £10,000 + VAT

Winner £31,000 + VAT


Pay your own expenses. Semis gate receipts all to home club. Lose an away semi and your own yer bike.

Team selection full metal jacket I say.

The premiership used to be split equally apart from the team relegated and promoted who split one amount. The champions cup was again I believe split between English teams if an English team won, Wasps were actually complaining it cost money to win the European cup. Not sure if either is still true today and obviously there are other benefits in winning.

Thank you Ajack.... seems a strange system but I guess it attempts to limit the ability of teams to dominate for multiple years
