12=. Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) – £550,000

The powerhouse centre signed a contract extension early in 2019, believed to be around a 25 per cent increase on his previous £450,000-a-year deal that will net him more than £1m over the next two seasons, to see him stay at Welford Road until the 2021 British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa.
