  • Roll out the barrel

    Good beer can mean great bar profits. MARTIN DUCKWORTH on why rugby clubs should be investing in cask ale       Are rugby clubs missing a major opportunity to score points with their members and guests who enjoy a great pint of ale, and cash in on a welcome resurgence in demand for cask ale? I ask this after discovering that, while more than 4,000 pubs and clubs in the UK have signed up for accreditation by Cask Marque, there are no stewards or bar managers of rugby clubs on its books. Cask M...

  • Player Agency By Numbers

    Recruitment and retention of rugby talent has become a significant and valuable part of professional rugby union. Premiership rugby clubs claim to have spent collectively £2.5m in agent fees each season. It’s a round number that conveniently sits at 5% of the £4.26m wage bill allowed by the salary cap multiplied by 12 clubs.  On a similar basis, it is fair to assume that the Celtic Pro12 clubs represent at least another £2m in fees each year. There may be another £0.5m accounted for by ag...
