4. FEES

Unlike many of our competitors, our fees are payable upon Player arrival, not in advance. Our fees are competitive and reflect our service.

5. OUR GUARANTEE

We give Clubs a six week period to assess a Player after his arrival. Should the Player not be up to first team standard, our fees are either refunded or credited to the Club. The Club must notify us of this during the six week probationary period.

We match players to clubs/unions – depending on their requirements and style of play, their strengths and weaknesses and their aspirations and objectives for seeking a contract. This ensures that both parties get the most out of the arrangement. We deal with over 500 clubs in ten countries around the world. This ensures that we are able to secure playing opportunities for players with varying preferences.

We assist the player with all aspects of commencing a new contract. This includes (where applicable) the preparation of a comprehensive rugby CV, drafting of a simple contract between club and player, visa applications, airfares, overseas bank accounts, travel insurance and IRB clearance.
