New Zealand Rugby staff, including its board and All Blacks management, are taking a 20% pay cut across the board as coronavirus bites into its finances.

The cuts are for a three-month period, after which they will be reviewed.

An NZR spokesperson said the the cutbacks would have been worse were it not for the Government's wage subsidy scheme.

New Zealand Rugby has been in negotiations with players' representatives over pay cuts for the All Blacks and Super Rugby players with an agreement likely by next week.
