Disappointed NRL players have demanded the league guarantee retirement funds following revelations it withheld $10 million super payments in the last two years.
The players’ union will again meet with the governing body on Tuesday as it attempts to broker a financial plan during the competition shutdown.
Players are expected to take a 75 per cent pay cut from the remaining seven months of the contractual year in a bid to ensure the survival of the game.
Should the coronavirus wipe out the entire season, all 480 contracted players have been guaranteed two months’ full pay for the next seven months.
