RFU & Premiership Rugby Agree Huge £200m Deal


England’s aim of becoming the dominant force in the global game has been strengthened by a new agreement signed by the Rugby Football Union and Premiership Rugby Limited.

The eight-year partnership between Twickenham and the Aviva Premiership clubs, worth over £200million, will give head coach Eddie Jones greater access to players, a later deadline for selection, two additional training camps and more rest periods for his Grand Slam winners.

RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie said: “This is a true partnership focussed on making English rugby the best in the world for club and country.”
