Amateur Status


All NSW Suburban Rugby Union competitions have been declared amateur since 2015.

The payment of players is prohibited and penalties will be applied for any breach of the amateur status. 

The NSWSRU Integrity Officer and Integrity Committee are responsible for ensuring all clubs and players are compliant with the Union's Amateur Policy. Any enquiries about the Union's Amateur Policy can be addressed to the Integrity Officer via email:

Any complaints concerning a player and/or club breaching the Union’s Amateur Policy should be forwarded to the Integrity Officer via the complaint form. Where possible, complaints should include corroborating documents and/or statutory declarations. Whilst anonymous complaints will NOT be accepted or investigated, a complainant’s confidentiality will be respected if requested.

This section of the Union’s website details the Amateur Policy and the Integrity Committee procedures surrounding it.
