    I've been told that people from Australia go over there and play rugby for clubs in Europe, from England to even the Netherlands, even getting paid/offered a job, accommodation because clubs are sponsored/run by local businessman. Does anyone have knowledge of this, I'd love to use rugby to meet new people and possibly get offered other opportunities like a job. Even Spain/France would be awesome.

    I'd send your CV to Worcester, they just lost their resident Aussie recently and are looking for another..

    I thought that's why they signed Rooney.

    English schools are stuffed full of antipodeans who teach sport. So you could get paid to teach rugby to kids, which is what I did for 3 months last year - great fun.

    Going to London and working in a bar is always an alternative.

    woops! Well maybe they won't mind having 2 Aussies... All the other players would have to hide all of their valuables...

    Yes, remember your natural role in life as an Australian:

    Us Brits brew the beer and you Aussies serve it to us! Aaahahahahahahahaaaa!


    ....alternatively you could teach rugby in schools :unsure:

    Some unusual replies but I was after something like this. A club which would give you employment like working in a pub. I've got an UK passport so I could go anywhere in Europe. Spain would be awesome. I guess my first task is becoming a half decent player first.

    My cousin said his div 3 side in the Ireland league a Kiwi bloke gets paid 30,000 euro and a job while some other where between 10,000 and 20,000.

    I'm going to say Old Wesley. They're fairly loaded by the sounds of it.

    It's common place for cricket players to come up here and play semi-pro in the lower levels during the Aussie off season, although I couldn't answer about any rugby clubs I'm aware of who will do the same.

    I think he's looking for Rugby connections for a job etc up here in Europe...

    Loads of clubs in and around London have schemes to recruit overseas players - they won't pay the players themselves, but have contacts with local employers (especially landscaping, building type jobs) so they get players over on the understanding that they will find them work and accommodation if they play for the club.
