NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg will take the same pay cut as NRL players as part of an agreement which is set to be rubber-stamped in the coming days.
Greenberg copped plenty of criticism in the past week after it was announced NRL executives would only take a 25 per cent pay cut compared to the near-50 per cent the players have negotiated.

But as part of further talks held between the NRL and RLPA on Wednesday, Greenberg has agreed to cop the same pay cut as the players in a show of solidarity.
“I want to acknowledge the players for their co-operative and collaborative approach to these discussions, Greenberg said in a statement on Wednesday.
“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. “
RLPA chief Clint Newton will put the revised proposal to players on Thursday.
An NRL spokesperson said Greenberg will continue to work on both a range of scenarios for the remainder of the 2020 season and securing the long term future of the game.
