News LTD reported earlier this year that South Aus. would pay $4m for an Origin game if they could have a full house. Is anyone aware of what the crowd situation is in S.A.

it was 6 million Plus for Origin Game if capacity.

Judging by AFL team Port Adelaide, they are sitting around the 30k mark for PRE LIM>

for Origin at Best it will be 75% capacity.

If that’s how much it cost to put the storm in Queensland it’s cheaper than keeping them in Melbourne.....or is that an add on cost.

Hate to think what it cost the afl with most their teams living away from home. But it is what it is. That’s the cost of keeping the season going.

keeping the Storm in Melbourne does not cost the NRL anything...
$4million was for the Resort for players and staff plus charted flights to Sydney.

Rugby league players will sacrifice around $20m in wages the next two years as the six-month stalemate with the NRL finally draws to a close.

NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo fired off an email to club bosses late on Sunday to inform them negotiations with the Rugby League Players' Association were progressing well and an outcome expected ''in the coming days''.

The Herald understands the two parties are more likely to nail down an official agreement by the start of next week. There is no appetite to leave the matter unresolved leading into the Christmas break.

As COVID-19 stripped millions of dollars from the game's bottom line, the players accepted they would need to take a pay cut in the coming years - but exactly how much was a matter for debate with the governing body.

The RLPA initially pushed for just a 2.5 per cent pay cut, after the players spent the last five months of the season on just 52 per cent of their wage. They took a 20 per cent cut across the 12 months.

The NRL proposed a 10 per cent reduction before the RLPA countered with 5 per cent. League Central's last offer was 7.5 per cent before it was reduced again and presented to the union last Friday.

Sources close to the negotiations believe the final figure will sit between 6 per cent and 7 per cent. Further meetings will take place this week, but both sides are privately confident there will be a satisfactory outcome to the talks that started way back in the middle of the year.

Clubs have paid players their full wages in November and will do so again in December before all payments will be adjusted accordingly the final ten months of the league season.

The 2021 and 2022 salary cap sits just shy of $10m, and based on 16 clubs over two seasons, players salaries would normally amount to $320m. Should there be a six-percent pay cut, $19m will be ripped from salaries, and just over $22m with a seven-percent dip.

The union are mindful other entitlements under the current collective bargaining agreement have already been impacted, including the retirement and injury and hardship funds.

The Herald also revealed last month Origin players had agreed to pocket $10,000 a game - down from $30,000 - as a show of good faith as negotiations continued. It is expected the Origin and representative payments will be impacted, including those taking part in next year's World Cup.

Any proposal will need to be endorsed by the RLPA board and then given the players' leaders' blessing.

The NRL have already slashed around $50m from their own operating costs.

Once an agreement has been reached, clubs will also be able to plan ahead for 2022 with confidence. Big earners like James Tedesco, who this week signed off on a new three-year, $3.3m deal with the Roosters, will be out of pocket by over $100,000 the next two seasons.

ARL Commission chairman Peter V'Landys made sure playing groups remained at 30 moving forward and not slashed to help offset any financial pain for the players.

The AFL and their union agreed to a 3.5 per cent pay cut for 2021, but team lists were reduced. Abdo told The Australian last month the reduced rosters needed to be factored in when comparing the codes and the respective negotiations with the players' unions.

Speaking on Nine's 100% Footy program earlier this year, V'Landys said: "We're there for all players, not just a few. There is 30 and we will continue it at 30.

"There will be a small reduction in the salary cap. I think our reduction will be the least of any sport. As a boy from Wollongong, I'll be looking after all of them. I take pride in looking after the battler.''

NEW PAY DEAL IN PLACE FOR 2021 & 2022

Rep stars cop financial hit to maintain top 30 squads in new pay deal

The revised CBA will see clubs operate to a $9.02 million cap this season – down from $9.6 million under the original agreement, and $9.11 million in 2022 – dropping from a planned $9.7 million.

With each NRL club saving just under $600,000 a year on salaries over the next two seasons, the savings amount to just under $19 million across player wages.

The six per cent salary sacrifice ensures that each club retains a top 30 NRL squad and at least three development players, avoiding the prospect of fringe first-graders being forced out of NRL deals by the financial impact of COVID-19

Where NSW and Queensland players were entitled to $30,000 match payments and the Kangaroos earned $20,000 per Test match, those figures have been reduced to $15,000 for Origin and $10,000 for Australian appearances

AFL records $22.8 million loss, not out of woods yet

The AFL officially lost $22.8 million during 2020 but the full cost of COVID-19 across the competition is much harder to measure as club and AFL cash reserves and lines of credit were exhausted
