I read that what could have been our last chance to retain Championship status with Richmond not taking up their promotion has now gone to the wall- they have decided to take up the offer with what they call an 'amateur side' There is quite a discussion on Rolling Maul about what the meaning of semi pro and amateur actually is - with even HMRC rules quoted. Interesting. As I asked earlier what is semi-pro? Seems to me it can be any job where there is financial reward no matter the amount of hours?! So are Richmond Semi or Amateur!!?
