*NOTE: This is only a list of players whose salaries have been revealed in the media.
12. Danny Cipriani (Gloucester) – £400,000
The fly-half was on £190,000 to £200,000 when he first joined the Cherry and Whites, which was a relatively modest wage for a player of his calibre and experience. It’s been reported that his new deal is closer to £400,000.

The England second-row became the clubs highest-paid player after extending his contract earlier this season.
