Australia’s Super Rugby players have agreed to accept a 30% pay cut until the end of September, two days before the professional league resumes after a break enforced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Players, who accepted an average 60% pay cut in April, will now receive “a flat 70% of their contracted remuneration, eligible match payments and bonuses” until Sept. 30.

The deal will be re-negotiated before any Test match programme beyond then.

The sport resumes with a 12-week domestic competition on Friday, with the New South Wales Waratahs travelling to Brisbane to take on the Queensland Reds in the opening match.
