Ospreys flanker Rob McCusker fears the club could lose some key players if a new funding deal is not hammered out soon.
It was hoped the deal between the Welsh Rugby Union and the four regions, known as “Project Reset” which includes a proposed pay banding system replacing National Dual Contracts, would have been sorted by now.
However, there has been a delay and McCusker has concerns if it is not sorted quickly. “They’ve (players) got to look after themselves, they can’t wait for the union forever, but I’m sure it’ll be sorted soon,” said McCusker.
“We may end up losing players who would like to have stayed.”
Meanwhile, Ospreys backs coach Matt Sherratt says Project Reset is not something he is worried about in the short term.
“I’ll be perfectly honest with you, for me it sounds like a James Bond film,” he said. “I don’t really take any notice, I’m busy coaching. “It’s for the people who’ve got a lot more responsibility outside of the game than I have.”
