Rugby League players in Australia get paid very low. Their average yearly income is about 200 thousand. If you compare Rugby League to other sports such as, AFL, NFL, major league and NBA, Rugby League is like a welfare payment. Rugby League is the toughest sport. It's fast and rought. Countries that are developing Rugby League such as Amercia and Lebanon, their players don't get paid at all. NRL (National Rugby League) which is running in Australia, has a salary cap. That's the reason why, Rugby League players are so under-paid. The highest paid rugby league player in Australia is about 500k for 3 years. Super League in England is better than NRL, at least their payment are double then the ones in NRL.

I'm afraid that women rugby players do not get paid, therefore they are not professional as it seems they do not command a large enough audience. They are allowed to claim expenses but must do it for the love of the game & country.

i reckon they should but there just overpaid

It has to be remembered that until recently (2003) Union players were not paid at all. The female game is developing and the gate money is increasing as is the sponsorship.

I don't think they earned anything. If it is like rugby league in Australia, they probably had day jobs to earn money and played football as a passion.

between £19,000 - £40-000 a year, The ruby elite will get paid near the £100,000 a year mark, but you could probably count them on your two hands. The rugby elite will also earn more through sponsorship etc. Bear in mind that in Ruby League there is a cap on what a squad of players can be paid, the cap is up to 1 million pounds a year, but take into consideration that there are sometimes up to thirty players in a Rugby League squad.

A super league rugby player typically gets paid anywhere from £50,000 - £100,000 a year. However, it will depend on which team they work for.

Professional softball players, of course, get paid. However, they do not earn nearly as much money as Major League Baseball players. The Olympic Team that will compete in Beijing this year does get paid, more than the professional softball players, but again, not as much as the average Major League Baseball player. For example, Jennie Finch drives a van, NOT a Ferrari.

anywhere from the minimum of $483,500 (rookies and D-League players) up to $32,000,000 (Kobe Bryant)
