With Super Rugby 2020 having been halted after seven rounds of fixtures rugby clubs, unions and franchises in the southern hemisphere have all been hit with challenges to stay afloat financially.

"Our coaching group has definitely taken a big cut," head coach Ian Foster said in an interview with Newstalk ZB's Martin Devlin.

"That’s happened for some and happening for others."
