The 12 highest-paid players currently in the Gallagher Premiership

4. Dan Biggar (Northampton Saints) – £600,000

Wales’ ‘Governor’ was a catalyst for the Ospreys, being a superb club man and racking up a points record. But he decided to sample life “outside the goldfish bowl” of Wales with a big-money offer enticing him to Northampton Saints.

3. Owen Farrell (Saracens) – £750,000

Farrell will remain at the club that he has called ‘home’ since the age of 14 until at least 2022, earning himself a hefty pay-rise in the process. His new deal means he will now earn in excess of £750,000 a season, bringing him in line with some of the highest-paid players in the world.

2. Maro Itoje (Saracens) – £850,000

Various industry sources have told RugbyPass that they estimate Itoje’s new salary to be somewhere in the region of £750,00 to £1 million.

1. Charles Piutau (Bristol Bears) – £1m

The former All Black full-back or wing, who surprised many by leaving New Zealand before reaching the peak of his powers, has allegedly become British rugby’s first million-pound man.
