A super league Rugby player typically gets paid anywhere from £50,000 - £100,000 a year. However, it will depend on which team they work for.
Much more then Australian Rugby League players
it depends on which league they play in
Depends on what player. The league minimum is 475k. But the max is 35million. Right now the most paid player is Kobe Bryant making around 25 million.
Professional softball players, of course, get paid. However, they do not earn nearly as much money as Major League Baseball players. The Olympic Team that will compete in Beijing this year does get paid, more than the professional softball players, but again, not as much as the average Major League Baseball player. For example, Jennie Finch drives a van, NOT a Ferrari.
The league's highest paid player is Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, on Â£250,000 a week.
Rugby League players in Australia get paid very low. Their average yearly income is about 200 thousand. If you compare Rugby League to other sports such as, AFL, NFL, major league and NBA, Rugby League is like a welfare payment. Rugby League is the toughest sport. It's fast and rought. Countries that are developing Rugby League such as Amercia and Lebanon, their players don't get paid at all. NRL (National Rugby League) which is running in Australia, has a salary cap. That's the reason why, Rugby League players are so under-paid. The highest paid rugby league player in Australia is about 500k for 3 years. Super League in England is better than NRL, at least their payment are double then the ones in NRL.
