Wales confirm where their Six Nations home matches will be played

#3. Taulupe Faletau (Bath RFC) – £475,000

The 86-times capped No 8 will join Cardiff next summer following a five-year stint at The Rec in which Faletau has pocketed close to £2.5m.

One of the most frustrating players in Bath history, Faletau was one of the most exciting back row players in the world game at times during his career.

However, injuries have seen the number 8 slowly regress as a player while up and coming youngsters such as Zach Mercer have left the club as Bath haven’t been able to give them the pay rises their talent warrants.

Earning more than Sam Simmonds and Alex Dombrandt combined shows just how much he is currently overpaid.
