The position of Rugby Football Union chairman is to be salaried for the first time, the English game's governing body has announced.

A sum of £80,000 has been designated for the post, when previously only expenses were paid.

Bill Beaumont is the outgoing chairman - the former England captain is leaving to fill the same role at World Rugby - and the search for his successor is ongoing.

"The position of RFU chairman will now be salaried, £80,000 for a two to three-day week," an RFU spokesman said.

"This move to a remunerated position is in line with similar positions in national and international federations and reflects the stature, remit and workload of the role."
