Rugby’s Five Highest Paid Players


Yesterday it was reported that the Worcester Warriors were willing to pay centre Manu Tuilagi £1.6 million over three years if the England star were to join them next season.

The deal is believed be structured in such a way that Tuilagi would earn £750,000 in the first year of his contract and £450,000 in his last two years. This of course would mean the Tigers and England centre would become the highest paid Premiership player in history.

Where you that put him in terms of the world highest paid players? Let’s take a look.

Dan Carter New Zealand Racing 92 £ 1,400,000
Matt Giteau Australia Toulon £900,000
Leigh Halfpenny Welsh Toulon £600,000
Johnny Sexton Irish Leinster £500,000
Bryan Habana South African Toulon £474,600
