NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg has agreed to take the same pay cut as the players.
Earlier this week, Greenberg said he would take a 25% pay cut which was significantly lower than what the players would take – but he has now agreed to take the same pay cut as the players in a show of solidarity.
Greenberg said: “I want to acknowledge the players for their co-operative and collaborative approach to these discussions.
“As I have said from the beginning, we are in this together and so in the spirit of our partnership, I have offered to take the same salary deal as the players.
“To me, it is the best and most sincere way of reflecting my appreciation of the way these discussions have been handled.”
