I think out of all the sports that South African’s take part in Rugby is one of the two that we really perform at, the other being cricket. It’s great to see some of our rugby players representing themselves and their country on a larger scale and playing for rugby teams abroad.
In rugby the bigger you are the better you get paid, and when we talk bigger we’re not talking about your size and how big your muscles are when you flex. The better you perform on the rugby field the better your chances of being recognised and getting a pay cheque that matches your performance.
According to the Daily Telegraph, All Black flyhalf Dan Carter will become the world’s highest-paid rugby player after agreeing to join French club Racing Metro following the Rugby World Cup.
