Rugby lawmakers to trial major law changes which props will hate, some coaches will love it

2. Finn Russell (Bath) – £1million

The Scotland fly-half, known for his unpredictable nature, had previously earned an annual salary of £850,000 while playing for Racing 92.

However, his recent agreement with Premiership club Bath is believed to be even more financially rewarding.

Speculations put his new deal at approximately £950,000, though certain sources indicate that it could reach an impressive £1 million per year for the entire three-year duration of his contract at the Rec.

1. Owen Farrell (Saracens) – £1.2m

Owen Farrell is set to bid farewell to English rugby at the conclusion of this season, as the Saracens fly-half secures a lucrative two-season contract with Racing 92.

The exclusive scoop was first reported by RUCK earlier today, revealing an agreement between Saracens and the Parisian club.

The Telegraph later confirmed the blockbuster move, disclosing that Farrell has officially inked a three-year deal with Racing 92.

A statement from Racing read: “Racing 92 can confirm the signing of Owen Farrell (32) for our men’s team. The England international has joined for two seasons and will join up with the ciel et blanc from July 1 2024.”

One report in France indicates that the former England captain could be earning up to £1.2m per season.
