An amateur rugby club is paying someone £90,000?

What does he actually do for Stockport?
I'd reckon its Chinese Whispers or bad hearing and its £19k........

I hate to say this …

home fixtures v Northwich, Blackburn & Carlisle, 3 of the top 6, and we have lost to the other top six teams at home

away fixtures v Warrington, Burnage, Stockport and Manchester, we have one win away from home at bottom of the table de la Salle

we probably need three wins …

£19K - I wonder, strong drink had been taken.....

Whatever he's doing and whatever the cost might be looks like a pretty poor return on investment to me and if I was Mr A Sugar-Daddy I would be contemplating pulling the plug pretty soon!

As I said above, the word is that his wife fund raises to cover his salary

We should make a decent account of ourselves in most if not all of the remaining games. I fancy 3 wins and a smattering of bonus points out of that lot. 

17pts by my guess

I'm sorry - wife raising funds (presumably in the name of the rugby club) so that her husband can be paid doesn't sit well with me

It's certainly a strange idea....I wonder if anyone raises funds (presumably in the name of the rugby club) to fund his wife's fundraising?

Bro pk, Manchester, Warrington & Burnage all have the same difficult run in. Games vs each other will decide it. I'm positive...but that's no surprise.

Well I've heard of a "Champagne lifestyle on a beer money budget" but this is most definitely "Beer money rugby on a champagne budget" Most of the other clubs in this league must be scratching their heads in disbelief

Correct me if I'm wrong. But are there not rules that govern how much a coach or player coach can he paid. I don't imagine that it's that much for a team playing at Level 6!

There seems to be a misapprehension about perceived "Salary Caps" at the various levels but these only come into play if you are applying for some form of financial assistance from the RFU (e.g. Interest free loans or grants) in which case you would be ineligible if you breached the cap. If you dont need these you can pay players and coaches whatever you want

That's how I understood it, not really much of a deterrent if you pay that sort of money at that level.

Common sense really - if you can afford to pay players and coaches why should the RFU grant or loan you funds to improve your facilities?

Only 2 changes this week! Hurrah! 

1 of them enforced as last week's starting 1, Josh Jenkins, has headed out to Australia to study for a few months.....sounds amazing to be fair!

Indeed which makes it strange that the RFU adopts this stance!

I don't think they have the mandate to determine how a club spends its privately raised money?
