England’s squad are set to split a £1.2million jackpot if they can beat New Zealand to reach the Rugby World Cup final, according to The Telegraph

It is believed to be the biggest single payout for a Test match, and would see each member of the 31-man squad earning around £41,000 each if they can reach their first final since 2007.

It’s more than double what the All Blacks will earn if they beat England to reach their third World Cup final in a row. They’ll be getting just over £500,000 split between them.
