St Ives Rugby Club is a dedicated amateur club and so cannot offer payment for playing for the club. It is a large community however and as such we can offer jobs to potential players from labouring to bar work and already have a list of 6 jobs that potential players can walk into and not be paid peanuts!
Accommodation and Social Interaction:
Players who come over will be assisted by the Club community to find accommodation in the attractive northern suburbs of Sydney. St Ives boasts as being the most social club in the Northern Suburbs of Sydney and there will be no shortage of opportunity to join in and make some friends with the many members of St Ives Rugby Club, with accommodation likely to be with other St Ives members.
