RFU Agrees To Deal With Rugby Players' Association, Premiership Rugby

The Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Players' Association and Premiership Rugby have agreed to a new four-year agreement for the England Elite Player Squad, according to RUGBY WEEK. The EPS agreement covers England senior, Saxons and U20 squads until June 30, 2016 and includes "confirmation of squad and match fees and performance bonuses." Together with the existing eight-year Heads of Agreement between the RFU and Premiership Rugby, it "ensures a stable future for club and country beyond the 2015 Rugby World Cup" (RUGBY WEEK, 1/16).
