    New Zealand Rugby are laying down a defensive scrum to ward off the impact of covid-19

    New Zealand Rugby are laying down a defensive scrum to ward off the impact of covid-19


    They are preparing to confront revenue losses which could exceed $100 million.

    Staff - including All Blacks management, Super Rugby coaches and chief executive Mark Robinson - will take 40 per cent wage cuts across the next three months and waive any potential bonuses.

    Rugby players' association boss Rob Nichol says it fits with their ethos that players must have other skills and qualifications in their repertoire outside the game.
