#3. Billy Vunipola – £520,000
A growing influence year on year, the England international eclipsed 150 matches for the Men in Black in 2022 and has become an integral part of the Sarries squad.
Excelling at club level has allowed Vunipola to express himself on the international stage with England, making his debut on the 2013 Summer Tour of Argentina. He has since amassed over 60 caps.
Billy comes from a rich vein of rugby talent. His father and uncle played for Tonga while cousin Taulupe Faletau has been capped by Wales and British & Irish Lions. Brother Mako, also a Lion, is a Saracens and England teammate and younger cousin Manu made his senior Sarries debut in the 2018/19 campaign.
