QUIDS IN | England rugby stars set for HUGE bonus each if they win the World Cup

England players will share a jackpot of close to £7 million, around £225,000 per player, if they win the World Cup in Japan, according to reports.

Reaching the semi-finals was worth £768,150, or £24,779 per player.

Reaching the third World Cup final, the RFU agreed with the Rugby Players’ Association, who negotiate on behalf of the team, to pay the squad £1,280,250, or £41,298 a man.

YOUR SAY:


Victory will be worth an additional £2,560,500 to the squad, taking the overall tally for bonus and match fee payments to £6,814,344.

It is understood that England’s 31-man squad will receive match fees, whether or not they feature in the match-day squad, of £13,000 per player in each of the four pool matches.

That is a significant drop from the fee of £23,000 players receive for the Six Nations matches.
