It would be due to the more variety of skills required to play the game, and the fact that all players need these skills, not just some like i NRL. AFL players need to be incredibly fit, some running up to and more than 16km a game, need to be strong, but not too heavy, must be fast, physically and mentally, and must have great coordination skills. whereas in rugby, some players need to be fast, others need to be big, they're nowhere near as fit as AFL players, and have significantly less coordination skills, especially forwards. Hence AFL players are better.
