PRO Rugby has let all players know that they are exercising the Voluntary Termination clause in each of their contracts. This likely signals the end of PRO Rugby. In a letter to players PRO Rugby CEO Doug Schoninger blamed issues with U.S.A. Rugby has a reason for exercising the termination clause. The door was left open to resolving the issues but with the league not able to make much happen on the expansion and sponsorship front, as well as deteriorating relations with various groups it doesn't look likely. It looks like the end of PRO Rugby in the current form.
Despite having their Voluntary Termination clause exercised players are still employees of PRO Rugby through the end of the clause. Schoninger also notified players that payment that was due on December 15th will be paid later this week. He cited the ongoing issues with U.S.A. Rugby as the reason for the delay.
