Harlequins asks staff, players and coaches to take a 25 per cent pay cut

Harlequins has asked all staff, players and coaches to take a 25 per cent pay cut to help the club through the coronavirus pandemic.

Chief executive Laurie Dalrymple said the move "wasn't taken lightly" but was essential to protect jobs and the future of the club.

Today, we have made the difficult decision to ask all our staff, players and coaches to support the club through a 25 per cent reduction of salary. We will look after our lowest earners and those facing financial difficulty.

Laurie Dalrymple, Harlequins chief executive
