Owen Farrell’s defiant statement: Reinstated captain here to stay

#4=. Dan Biggar (Toulon) – £800k

The Welsh playmaker has joined French club Toulon with immediate effect from Northampton Saints at the players request.

#4=. Maro Itoje (Saracens) – £800k

When Itoje was rumoured to be interested in joining Racing 92 last year, club president Jacky Lorenzetti let slip that the lock wanted €1million for the deal to go through.

Exact figures on Itoje’s current salary at Saracens vary but it is widely reported that he is bringing home in excess of £800,000.

#2=. Cheslin Kolbe (Toulon) – £850k

The speedster hit the financial jackpot with his summer switch from Toulouse to Top 14 rivals Toulon. He now warns an annual salary of €1million after they buy out the remainder of his contract from the recent league/Champions Cup double winners.
