    The Storm are trying to buck a disturbing NRL trend

    The Storm are trying to buck a disturbing NRL trend

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Some Sydney clubs have already undertaken cost-cutting measures after the season's coronavirus postponement, but Melbourne have avoided culling staff to this point.

    Up to 85 per cent of NRL employees were told on Monday to take paid leave until May 1st, and players face salary cuts of up to 87 per cent.

    Coach Craig Bellamy has told Fox League Mornings it's a struggle.
