This page explains the Tiers 2 and 5 (sport people) requirements for rugby union for the 2008/2009 season. These requirements were agreed following consultation with the UKBA (UK Border Agency) and the relevant stakeholders for rugby union in Northern Ireland. The category of Tier 2 (sports people) of the Points Based System is for elite sports people and coaches who are internationally established at the highest level, whose employment will make a significant contribution to the development of their sport at the highest level in the UK and who intend to base themselves in the UK. Tier 5 (Sporting) is for sportspeople and coaches who are internationally established at the highest level and/or whose employment will make a significant contribution to the development and organisation of their sport in the UK and will come to the UK for no more than 12 months at a time. The UKBA has recognised the IRFU Ulster Branch as the governing body in Northern Ireland for setting the endorsement requirements and issuing endorsements. The IRFU Ulster Branch has consulted and reached a consensus of all interested bodies in the sport in relation to finalising these requirements.
