Unfortunately the idea of playing for the shirt went out of the window with professionalism. The players will feel they have done their bit by taking the cut and that stance is probably justified. In terms of the overall expenditure of the RFU I'm not sure it makes much difference. I expect they will see the waste in the RFU and wonder why cuts are in some areas and not others. I think it should be all those RFU hangers on with the big expenses budgets and who provide little, but are a big drain on finances, that should be cut. Same old story, that will also be played out in many other industries, the pointless upper echelons will continue to be feather bedded, while the genuinely essential get cut. Too many chiefs and not enough indians(Sm63)
Sounds to me that the RFU needs to hire some seriously expensive management consultants to tell them what they should already know!
