They will also receive match payments and prize money depending on how they do. The problem I do have is Austrailia, New Zealand and England getting more from this than tier 2 Nations.

Given those 3 countries are the birthplace of 75% or so of the players on show, that's about right......but that also is a whole other thread!
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

That’s completely irrelevant to the match payments and prize money players receive.

No it isn't!
If the players receive match payments, then it still means that the 3 countries mentioned will receive 75% of that income, regardless of what shirt the player is pulling on

I could be wrong but I got the impression from the RFU guy that they always cover the costs for teams like Samoa. On the one hand it's good to support the smaller nations, but equally they're charging people a lot of money to go and watch England at Twickenham. Would those people be happy knowing that some of their money is being given away to other nations and not being used to support rugby in England? I'm sure there are plenty of rugby clubs in England that need money to improve their facilities and equipment. It's a difficult balance keeping everyone happy. I would prefer that World Rugby dealt with these issues rather than it being the duty of England RU. Anyway, this is a RL forum. :)

Yes they do, I was just reading about Samoan RU being bankrupt & it says-
"One of the things we do when Samoa is here is cover all of their costs whilst they are in the country, so that will happen naturally."


Sorry for the O/T lads. :oops:
