SUPER League clubs have voted unanimously in favour of retaining the salary cap at existing levels for the 2021 season.

The decision was reached at a general meeting this afternoon, and follows some calls for the maximum spend on players' wages to be decreased from £2.1m following the difficulties experienced this year due to the season suspension and lockdown forced by the coronavirus pandemic.

Executive chairman Robert Elstone said: “The unanimous vote is another example of the unity shown by our clubs in response to the significant challenges posed by Covid-19.

"Whilst we will continue to apply the existing levels of scrutiny to all costs, today’s decision underlines our commitment to ensuring Super League remains strong and competitive, and also shows confidence in our ability to manage the competition through these uncertain times."
