A Rugby Union players gets much more than Rugby League players. Rugby League players get between (in average) 80,000k-120,000k. The highest paid rugby league player earns 500,000k a year.
Rugby players because they get more recognition
Soccer players are paid vastly more at the professional levels than rugby players
they make about 4.5 mil up to 5 mil
i reckon they should but there just overpaid
I'm afraid that women rugby players do not get paid, therefore they are not professional as it seems they do not command a large enough audience. They are allowed to claim expenses but must do it for the love of the game & country.
It has to be remembered that until recently (2003) Union players were not paid at all. The female game is developing and the gate money is increasing as is the sponsorship.
7 milion rand monthly
Football (soccer) started as a pro game much sooner and has been marketed world wide
Yes. There are hundreds of professional rugby players as well as coaches and team instructors who are paid to play the game.
In South Africa Rugby Union Players are paid an average of four times that of Football players who in turn urn more or less the same as the Cricket Players before the IPL Cricket Tournament was formed.
They have since 1995.
In most Professional sports like rugby, football, basketball, tennis the players get paid And in some cases A LOT!
1908 when players became fed up with not being paid compensation in rugby union, Australia
Rugby League players = Very low, an average of 80,000-100,000 Rugby Union Players = regional league level in the UK they are averaging £30,000 per year/per player without including appearance fees, marketing, branding support, interviews for TV and Radio,
Not much, compared to other sporting industries. Their average pay is like 150,000 and in AFL is like 250,000.
Between $30,000 to $450, 000 a season. Depending on the team, the athlete and his poisiton/role in the side.
