A number of lower-paid staff will be excluded from these salary reductions.’‘I spoke with [interim head coach] Lee Blackett and senior members of the playing squad and we then communicated this message to the wider team and colleagues. I could not be more proud of their response, understanding and determination to help the club in such testing times.’Meanwhile, Worcester released their own statement on Friday, saying: ‘In the short term all our staff will take a 25% pay cut effective from 1 April .‘The reduction will not apply to staff below a certain salary threshold to ensure they are protected. We have offered as much support as we can to any member of staff who may suffer particular hardship as a consequence.‘We appreciate this is not an ideal situation for anyone, but we hope that with the support of our loyal and dedicated staff in these difficult and challenging times that we can manage our way through this period.‘Our aim is to plan for the day in the near future when we reopen the gates of Sixways to a full house where we can all enjoy cheering on the boys and the dizzying highs and lows that come with it.’Shortly after the two clubs announced their plans, Gloucester and Saracens confirmed they would also be making 25% wage cuts.Photo: Wasps Rugby World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
