About 30,000 coaching sessions are provided every year. There are also few paid staff and several volunteers who are trained and supported. Volunteers are given responsible roles such as organising rugby activities, supporting work force and more. RFU has few PLC standards though it is neither a charity nor a company. It is a friendly society that is owned by member clubs. It gets its income through funds from government, sponsorship, a travel company, hospitality and catering; and television rights. The Rugby Football Union (RFU) is totally against the use of drugs just like other sports authorities. It encourages its players for doping free rugby. Different policies are run to tackle different issues related to doping. This is one of the fastest growing sports that have sustained strength and standards. This sport involves everything from teamwork, respect, enjoyment to discipline and sportsmanship.
