    $6.1 million - Basic payments for the Top 25 players including Sponsor Servicing Allowance ($200k) which is automatically given to all clubs to compensate players for club sponsorship activities including appearances and endorsements.

    Also included is a Long Serving Player Allowance ($300K) per Club for eligible players who have played more than six continuous years of grade football with that club including Holden Cup and NSW Cup.

    + $243,750 per team - Paid by the NRL to the RLPA towards players' Retirement Account Contribution.

    + $100,000 per team - Paid by the NRL to the RLPA towards their administration funding.

    *Payments under the actual salary cap total $6.30 million paid directly by clubs across the Top 25 players. The additional $343,750 paid into the RLPA Retirement and Administration Fund Contribution is not defined as a salary cap payment.

    What players can earn outside the salary cap:

    $600,000 - Marquee Player Allowance - any or all of the Top 25 players at each club can share in payments made by club sponsors seeking to use a player's intellectual property. These may be guaranteed in the playing contract by clubs.

    $100,000 - Motor Vehicle Allowance – a maximum amount of five motor vehicles may be provided to players in the Top 25 outside of the salary cap. (Valued at $20,000 each).

    Unlimited - Players can earn unlimited amounts from corporate sponsors who are not associated with the club and who do not use the game's intellectual property (no club logos, jerseys or emblems) provided these are pre-approved. These agreements may not be negotiated by the club as an incentive for a player to sign a contract, nor can they be guaranteed by the club.

    Unlimited - Tertiary education fees, approved traineeships, medical insurance costs, relocation/temporary accommodation costs are not included in the cap but must be approved.


    How many players in our team fit the criteria of the bold paragraph. Snake, Matai, Ballin, Buhrer, DCE, Lyon. Anyone else?

    Or have I interpreted it wrong and it's 300k for only player per team?

      I thought the other thread was about the new Members Cap.

        Unless there has been a recent change, stupidly the long serving player allowance is 300k total per club i.e. if club (a) has 3 players that meet the requirements then the 300k is split between them while if club (b) has only one player he can get the whole 300k. It's a stupid rule that needs to change.

          So as long as we have at least one player that qualifies for the long serving players allowance we benefit. Haha every club has one. Pointless really
