Jones to take pay cut

  • RFU estimates Covid-19 will cost up to UK£50m through 2021

Four Six Nations matches were postponed due to the coronavirus.

The RFU is now understood to be in consultation with the wider England coaching staff about temporary salary reductions, but Jones has already assented.

"When I contacted Eddie regarding our executive pay reduction proposals he immediately agreed", said RFU chief executive officer Bill Sweeney.

The RFU's executive board will take pay cuts of more than 25 percent as a result, but a £7 million fighting fund will be provided to help community clubs survive over the coming months.

The RFU and Wales' governing body WRU confirmed last week the end of the 2019-20 season for all league, cup and county rugby, with the exception of the English Premiership, due to the pandemic.

England's Rugby Football Union (RFU) expects to lose up to £50 million over the next 18 months due to economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Following a virtual board meeting the RFU announced it had made a decision to offer a £7m ($14.2m) relief package for community clubs, though confirmed the impact of the global sporting shutdown in the face of the virus would be felt keenly.

The RFU insists it has plans in place to mitigate the forecast losses that could end up being greater if England's autumn worldwide matches do not go ahead.

"The RFU's biggest asset is also a major cost and the closure of Twickenham has a significant impact on the revenues we can generate to reinvest into the game", Sweeney said. "In addition, combined board fees will be reduced by 75%", Sweeney said. In that sense, we are like every other club in the union: when we do not stage matches and events we do not generate revenue.

Many Gallagher Premiership clubs have agreed 25 per cent wage cuts with players, although this has met with some opposition.

"The RFU executive team will be taking a cut in remuneration in excess of 25%. We will ensure a fair and balanced outcome for the game and are now committed to update on this by the middle of April".
