You can pay at any level after all the game is "open" but at certain levels you lose any access to RFU funding as stated above.

Now we've cleared that up, let's move on..

Does that mean they must have declared any payment to the RFU to avoid any sanctions?

With RFU payments being slashed, it is less of a deterrent than last year

New season upon us and the money is flowing. At this level is ridiculous and have Clubs with a purse not recognised yet that you will destroy your Club? Look above and below you if you are paying because it is not pretty.

Players join a club because they are being paid to do so.If the money is taken away or someone wants to pay them more, then they leave. Its logical. When that happens there is no choice but to continue to pay to replace them as the club is soul less.
It amazes me that clubs at this level can pay when their pitch needs irrigating, the clubhouse is falling down, the bar is no cheaper than a pub, there is no food to buy on match days, there is a long queue on training nights to see the physio because there is only one available, physio equipment is out of the ark, players have to get to away games under their own steam, etc. 
Yet the Chairman and his ilk will come round with the begging bowl pleading poverty all the while sanctioning paying mediocre players. Madness.

As good a post match meal as u r likely to get in Lon 1 S Gareth! Incidentally, we lose 2 of the leagues best programmes in Totts and Chobham next season, and I am mot sure any of KCS, Belsize Park or HAC even do them, more’s the pity.

Wow..that's a hugely depressing view of any rugby club that I've heard for ages!
However it's not all doom and gloom out there!,sounds like you need a new rugby club to support...come and take a look at us ,we don't pay our players, they play for us because they want to, we have the best facilities in this league, and if you become a member you get discount at the bars, you know where we are so what yer waiting for😁

Because, as you say, its a club otherwise what is the point of paying membership ?

If a club wants a donation every year then call it that.

I was talking to a guy the otherday who has signed for a team on the premise of riches from a club at this level it really does make you think of the necessary need to pay players at this level, do you feel a revamp of the whole mini juniors school relationship and coaching needs to be done?. If every coach goes on the same course naturally it produces the same pllayer but battle of whose most athletic. Maybe a return to a club has its identity and modernise the style of play to that identity?

Ealing Rugby Club are forming a new club and it is said that they will never play players a truly amateur club . When you join you will know that you will never receive `expenses`Here it is another truly amateur club . The one differenec is that you will have top coaches ( level 3 / 2 ) and first class facilities. 

We have recently formed a new club under our existing club, Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club (ETRC). In the era of professional and amateur rugby, it’s necessary to implement the right structure to provide all rugby players with a pathway that suits their rugby ability and ambition.

 

Ealing Trailfinders 1871

The Club has decided to create a new club with RFU accreditation for the new season.  The new Club, playing as Ealing Trailfinders 1871, will be closely linked to the existing Ealing Trailfinders structure, share the same facilities but will operate independently within the RFU regulations and compete independently within the RFU league structure. See HERE for more details.

Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

I'm guessing to spread the word? It did prompt me to visit Ealing's website though.

No 7 am I right in assuming that Ealing pay players in the Exiles and Evergreen sides as both still appear under the "professional" banner? Having the "obligatory half of Guinness" pre match doesn't quite stack up with receiving a match fee as well.

just a thought given recent posts over funding and the long term future of the game.

There are no payments paid to the Exiles or the Evergreens ( the vets team )

The concept is to avoid payments to any players outside of the Pro team.

The Ealing Trailfinders landing page shows two options Pro or Amateur.
