The Rugby Football League will report losses of £2.09m for 2017.

It said a loss was "budgeted for" in a year without any home international fixtures, along with sizeable investment in infrastructure and the international set-up.

England lost to Australia in the final of the 2017 World Cup.

The RFL said the autumn Test series against New Zealand and "improved commercial deals" should see them record a surplus in 2018.
