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 Union is alot bigger everywhere. The only places they seem to play it is Australia and northern England. Rugby union is a much better sport anyway. Rugby Union is more popular than Rugby League because Rugby Union is much older than League. Rugby Union players get much more than League players and union is played in more places than league. I recon League is much better than union.
1 million dollars !
At the moment, none. Rugby League Women players just begun playing rugby. Not like men, who have been playing at the start
Not much at all, Rugby League pay is so low compare to Union and AFL. Their Average salary is between 75,000-100,000
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,
In comparison to American football players and soccer players they certainly are not over paid but for the top players its considered that they may be under paid
In the league code there are 13 player. The positions of the wing forward (flanker) has been removed from the game
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.
A rugby league try is worth 4 points.
From $800,000 to $1.5 million among the top 10 players of the National Rugby League (NRL)
Not much, compared to other sporting industries. Their average pay is like 150,000 and in AFL is like 250,000.
Super League players earn on average £50,000 - £100,000 a year in accordance to club, skill, experience ect. If you are internationally capped your wages will rise closer to the £100,000 area. Young players and academy players can be payed as little as £10,000. However Rugby Union players earn £50,000 - £300,000 a year roughly, and even more. Hence Kyle Eastmond leaving to Rugby Union club Bath, where his wages will be significantly better than at Saint. Saints being a top flight club, most players will be earning circa £80,000 - £100,000 per year.
Depends, how long you have been playing, your age, postion, who you play for, if you played any representives and your popularity.
hell yer by a mile No way, soccer has no bloody action or roughness towards it. They trip, dance, and cry like faries. Rugby League is a mans sport where players bleed, sweat and share tears for their team mates. The pay is very low in Rugby League, and the players are increasly increasing every year, this shows how much love is shared in the game. Soccer is all about the money.
Between $30,000 to $450, 000 a season. Depending on the team, the athlete and his poisiton/role in the side.
It depends, what sort of Rugby do you mean? League or Union?
NO. Dan Carter never played rugby league in his life. There was no rugby league where he was brought up in Canterbury and that goes for much of NZ. its only a very minor sport in NZ.
The top rugby players earn around 500k per year
At the end of the day, it matters on the person. But persoanlly I prefer Rugby League better than NFL. Reasons are; - NFL requires many gears such as 10 basic pieces of equipment helmet, shoulder pads, a tailbone pad, 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads, 2 knee pads, and a cup. Mouthguards are pretty much necessary, but not really a pad. Outside of that some players also opt to wear flack jackets, back and/or sternum plates, neck rolls, forearm pads. Rugby League players do not have any protection, which mouth guard is optional - NFL is a very slow pace game, after every phase, they stop and have a rest. Rugby League is 80mins full game, spilt into 40mins halves with non-stop action. - NFL is all about the big bucks, since all the players get between two or three digitals and classified as millions, Rugby League does not get that much money, showing that Rugby League players are passonaite about their sport.
