Owen Farrell & the 8 Highest-Paid Players from Great Britain and Ireland

Here, we look at eight of the highest-paid British players in world rugby and where England fly-half Owen Farrell fits in..

8. Manu Tuilagi (Sale Sharks) – £350,000

The England centre was forced to take a £100,000 paycut after leaving Leicester. It’s thought that the centre may try to take Tigers to court over a loss of earnings.

7. Paddy Jackson (London Irish) – £500,000

The number 10 will reportedly earn more than his ex-international teammate Sean O’Brien, who’ll also pocket a hefty £450,000 wage packet. null
