The RPA enables members to seek independent advice on any matter concerning employment and welfare, including: contract disputes, contract termination, agent disputes, payment concerns and criminal charges.

Players are also represented by their Player Representative at each Aviva Premiership Club and one representative for the Championship on The RPA Players’ Board. Through this board players can express suggestions or concerns on any area associated with the game or players’ development on and off the pitch. These views are taken to all stakeholders.
