Mike brown rugby salary: Mike Brown, a former England stalwart, is expected to return to Newcastle Falcons, where he will reunite with former Harlequins head coach Dean Richards. The transfer was first reported by The Rugby Paper last week, and RugbyPass now understands that Brown has agreed to a two-year deal with the high-flying northern club, although on significantly reduced terms than his current Harlequins contract.
Leicester was left with no options if they decided to keep Tuilagi after Worcester made a reported £1.5 million three-year bid. The agreement is projected to have a major impact on the Premier League.
The new pay ceiling regulation, effective next season, was described this year by the Rugby Chief Executive, Mark McCafferty. The Prime Minister has announced that in both seasons, McCafferty will increase its salary ceiling by £1.5 million.
At the beginning of the 2016/17 season, the new regulation will come into force and clubs have already begun investing their new funds.
International French No. 8 Louis Picamoles, together with Matt Toomua, Jean de Villiers, Leicester, and Rhys Priestland, Bath, was already attracted to Northampton Saints in the following season from Toulouse.
