Mike Tindall, the former England captain, has backed potential investment into rugby from Saudi Arabia, emphasising that the efforts of the players on the field are currently not being backed up by the finances off it.

Tindall, speaking on The Good, The Bad and The Rugby podcast, noted that other sports have pressed on with investment from Saudi Arabia despite criticism of the country’s human rights record by Amnesty International.

Telegraph Sport reported back in January that four Gallagher Premiership clubs were in discussions regarding investment from the Saudi sovereign Public Investment Fund (PIF).
