All Blacks to take a pay cut

All Black players will take a pay cut due to COVID-19.

The All Black staff have already had a pay cut with no games being played and the 2020 calendar still unconfirmed.

Discussions are already underway with the players on how their reductions would be managed.

Sporting experts believe the All Blacks will take a big hit financially. With so many countries in lockdown and borders closed all over the world, it could be months before the sport starts back up again and even longer for the restart of international competition.

New Zealand Rugby gets most of its revenue from TV Stations and broadcasting rights. However, many of these are set to finish if no games are played.
