Welsh rugby players set to be furloughed

Wales rugby players and coaches are expected to be furloughed by their regions because of the financial impact of coronavirus, report to the BBC.

The Professional Rugby Board and Welsh Rugby Players Association have already agreed a 25% pay reduction.

Now the four Welsh regions are turning to the government’s Job Retention Scheme, which pays 80% of wages to staff who are put on leave, up to a monthly cap of £2,500.

The scheme lasts until 30 June.
