As far as I'm aware (unless things have been misreported or have recently changed) the only 'funding' from the RFU to NL1 clubs nowadays is a minimal amount of travel allowance (and that dependent on the calculated distances travelled over the season - meaning Cov and Mose benefit least, and clubs like Darlington and Plymouth fare slightly better, although all is relative and the word 'benefit' is indubitably a misnomer).

Here's what Cov's MD said about it over a year ago. I know his stance hasn't softened in the interim Coventry Telegraph
