Australia Rugby 2020: A payment agreement is reached with the player to take a large discount | Instant News

Australian Rugby will reportedly shave more than 80 percent of its player’s wage bill after protracted negotiations finally peaked at the weekend.

Super Rugby and seven Australian players are set to receive a salary cut of 60 percent which – when combined with the government’s JobKeeper payment – will allow RA to save 83 percent on payments between April and September, Sydney Morning Herald report.

Formal discussions between the RA and the Rugby Union Players Association (RUPA) lasted for almost four weeks but were understood to be almost finished on Sunday afternoon.
