How do players get paid?
Old Col 31 August, 2019 13:29
What really is the salary cap ? Are fees for international appearances entirely in addition to their club's salary ? Or do clubs pay them less ? ( I know the union in question pays the club some compensation--presumably to offsetthe cost of having to pay someone else in the platers absence ) .
When a player is sponsored does he keep the money as well as his salary ? what happens when sponsorship money means the money available to pay players exceeds the official salary cap?

It feels like there are as many ways to play a rugby players as there are words in a dictionary.

it will be fudged...
there is no way they will find them guilty because that would then have to mean systemic cheating has corroded the league over seasons...
