Highest Paid Centre In Rugby League

When you hear the words ‘most expensive centre’, names such as Australia stars Latrell Mitchell, Josh Morris or Will Chambers may come to mind.

It will come as a surprise, therefore, that the world’s highest-paid centre doesn’t actually play in the NRL, nor does he compete in Super League.

That’s because it’s Toronto flyer Ricky Leutele.

Toronto star Ricky Leutele is the highest-paid centre in the world.

The 29-year-old was the Wolfpack’s highest-profile recruit to date when he signed from Cronulla ahead of this season, signing a deal earning him around £430,000 ($800,000) per year.

He has gone on to star for the Canadian side, scoring 18 tries in 27 games.

I read this earlier 😊
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I’d assume they’ll spend even more of and when they get promoted?

If they do get promoted will the Salary Cap not apply to them?

I assume he will be their marquee signing.

What’s the problem?
