Here, we shall be having a rundown of the top five most overpaid rugby players in the world currently.
5 most OVERPAID Rugby Players:
#1. Handre Pollard (Montpellier) – £1,000,000 per year
Has the highest-paid player in the world flopped when on the pitch for Montpellier? No, but he’s barely played despite earning more than double Harlequins and England star Marcus Smith (£480,000).
Only six starts and four replacement appearances during 2021 means the Springbok playmaker pocketed £100,000 per game or £2,061 per minute for the French club last year
Brilliant and absent almost in equal measure, Pollard departs GGL Stadium this summer after agreeing to a much lower contract to join Leicester Tigers.
