Pacific rugby players want Europe’s top unions to agree to a profit-sharing deal that could boost the test coffers of Tonga, Samoa and Fiji.

The Pacific Rugby Players Welfare wants to meet with World Rugby and officials at the English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh and French unions to agree to a new deal for the island nations.

According to the Associated Press, the players’ chief executive Daniel Leo confirmed the group had proposed that tier one nations agree to a 10-percent profit share when hosting the Pacific nations in their November tests in the northern hemisphere.

Leo said 10 per cent of profits from a sold-out Twickenham Stadium could help fund Samoa’s senior rugby programmes for up to three years.
