England’s women will get bonus if they win the Rugby World Cup

It has been revealed that the Red Roses will pocket £15,000 each if they can win the Rugby World Cup down in New Zealand.

That means Simon Middleton’s 32-woman squad will split a total bonus pot of £480,000, which is £270,000 less than Owen Farrell’s yearly salary at Saracens.

In 2019, England’s men were promised a £5m pot to split, with another £1m for coaches and management, according to the Telegraph.

England’s women claimed a record 84-19 win in their tournament opener on Saturday, scoring 14 tries against Fiji to shoot to the top of Pool C.

The other two closest contenders for the crown, France and hosts New Zealand, also won on Saturday against South Africa and Australia respectively.

Every member of Simon Middleton’s 32-player squad is set to earn £2,500 for the Red Roses’ three pool games and a further £2,500 for the quarter-final and semi-final, should they reach the knockout stages.

Players will pocket another £10,000 if they make the final at Eden Park on November 12.
