At the beginning of July, Bill Sweeney, executive director of the English Federation (RFU), announced a plan of drastic budget cuts to deal with the coronavirus crisis. A plan which included the elimination of 139 positions (out of 594) and salary cuts for the rest, while the RFU budgeted 107 million pounds (about 118 million euros) of losses due to the coronavirus crisis which notably led to the closure of Twickenham, the Federation’s cash machine.

In a document that was obtained The Guardian, the RFU details its cuts in the wage bill. And the number of jobs cut would actually climb to 169. The hardest hit sector would be that which works to develop rugby in the country, with 130 employees retained, out of 234.

The septists would be the most affected

Other victims include the XV de la Rose feminine and the men’s and women’s teams of 7. To date, the RFU has accumulated 58 federal contracts in these three teams. A figure that would fall to 30 according to the document released by The Guardian. The septists would be the most likely to not see their contracts – which expire at the end of August – renewed, especially since the world circuit will not resume before 2021.

For renewed contracts, the salary proposals should be further reduced by 25%. Recall that the two teams of seven are qualified for the Tokyo Olympics which will take place in a year while the girls of the XV will participate in the World Cup in New Zealand in September and October 2021.
