IRFU Chief Says Their Cash Reserves Will Be Exhausted In A Few Months.

: 05/23/2020 - 12:36

IRFU chief executive Philip Browne has warned that their cash reserves are likely to be exhausted in a few months.

He says the association have hit a "revenue cliff" and need professional rugby to resume in order to generate income.

A cancelled Six Nations in 2021 would cost the IRFU 30 million Euro while a behind closed doors tournament would see them lose 16 million in gross revenues.

Leinster, Munster, Ulster and Connacht are set to resume their campaigns with inter-pro games behind closed doors at the Aviva on August 22nd and 23rd.
