If you excluded one form of payment you invalidate the cap.

I actually think compared to rugby the rules look quite lax. Rugby have to include payments made to family members as well. Will be 8nteresting to see full details. How does it cater for long term injury ? If you are at the cap and get several long term injuries can you remove the players from the squad and bring in loans to replace them or are you stuck with a smaller squad ?
What about the examplesquoted elsewhere where a club funds part of a player’s wages at another club ? Who’s cap does that count towards ?
