The NRL and Rugby League Players’ Association are close to ending their Bitter Pay War after breakthrough talks. The NRL is hopeful that a resolution can be reached by Thursday afternoon. Key stakeholders from both sides, including NRL CEO Andrew Abdo and RLPA boss Clint Newton, participated in lengthy meetings. The negotiations have been ongoing for 20 months, with issues such as the length of the season, union funding autonomy, and digital rights causing the divide. Players have taken action to initiate talks, including boycotting media duties and threatening to boycott the Dally M awards.
