Six Nations prize money 2021: How much will every team earn?

The biggest jackpot in world rugby will be available when the 2021 Six Nations comes to its conclusion today,

Six Nations prize money for the 15-match tournament has reached a record £16m for this year’s tournament.

So how much Six Nations prize money will each of the competing teams win this weekend?

6th: £1m

5th: £1.5m

4th: 2m

3rd: £2.5m

2nd: £3.5m

Grand Slam: £6m

If no team manages to go throughout the tournament undefeated, the winner’s fund is decreased by £1m and every other team earns an extra £200,000.

England players are set to split a stunning £700,000 worth of bonuses from the Six Nations prize money if they can win the tournament tomorrow.

It is understood that a title success is worth up to £30,000 per player depending on campaign game-time. The RFU had already set aside the funding for this eventuality.

For the next year, England players will see their international match fees drop by a quarter to approximately £18,000.
