Wales won their third Six Nations Grand Slam under Warren Gatland this past weekend with the New Zealander becoming the first man to achieve such a feat.
After wins against France, Italy, England and Scotland – Wales completed the slam with an impressive 25-7 win over a hapless Ireland side at the Principality Stadium and are set to pocket a few quid as a result.
According to WalesOnline, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have earned a massive pay-out of £5.5m and, in completing a clean sweep, they also deny their Six Nations rivals a £200,000 bonus payment which is paid out when no country achieves a Grand Slam.
The Championship title winners get £4.5m, but there’s an extra £1m on the table if that team achieves a title win via a Grand Slam. As for the players – they will be duly rewarded for their efforts.
Wales pay their players a match fee of around £5,300 per game and an image-rights payment of £1,500 per player but can earn up to £15,000 per-game with bonuses. And it’s thought they will also share a bonus to the value of around £1 million for their Grand Slam win.
