The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has posted group revenues of £213.2m ($297.1m/€251.4m) for the 2018-19 season, up by £40.8m on the previous year, driven largely by an increase in international matches played at Twickenham over the season.

The RFU said that increased broadcast and ticket income was raised from an additional autumn international match in 2018 and a second-place finish in the Six Nations compared to fifth place the previous year.
