Out of interest, and mainly because I often see figures bandied around on here, but do we actually have any confirmed figures on what individuals at any club are being paid, or is it just guesswork on the part of people who post on here?

I mean, what is 'superstar money' and what's your average SL player earning?



as mentioned above the expected average salary is about 80k

i would say 140k is top star money.

Once you get above 150(depending on home or overseas) you're in marquee territory, "superstar" wages(with superstar expectation)

You know what the irony here is, we keep getting told that we should invest in youth, because long term its cheaper than buying imports or signing from outside, yet here we've invested in youth, we've got an England international, current dream team player, and probably currently the best centre in the league, and we might be getting priced out of keeping him. and not to the nrl either.

Are we being a bit precious, different positions, but compare current top line king, with 2015/16 ben currie, he probably was on about 120k+ as being one of the best backrowers in the league (loving acl tears :cry: ) we wouldn't have begrudged him that contract at the time. Should we now with King?

Marquee Player – Each Super League and Championship Club is permitted to have two Marquee Players whose Salary Cap value is limited to £150,000 (or £75,000 if Club Trained);

Toby isn't a superstar, his defence can sometimes lapse and he could do with a bit more speed, but we all know that the standard of rugby league has dropped significantly over the past few years and that leaves him as one of the best UK centres. So if you wan't to keep him you have to pay up. Since he came through our Academy I would hope we keep him, god knows we have had too few players coming through to the first team without losing any.

I wonder if this rumour of a £140K offer has come from Huddersfield. They always have a bit of cash and it would allow him to return home.

Forgive my ignorance - so do Austin and Widdop take up 300k on our salary cap and then have extra on top of that, which doesn't count on the cap, and, if so, what's the most you can pay on top, or is it unlimited?
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Just checked, we also get a mighty 5k dispensation as he's club-trained.

Negotiate him down to 120k, becomes 115k on the cap. Probably on par with our better players.

Job's a good'un.

Marquee players could be paid a billion pounds a week and it'll still only count as £150k on the cap.

It's presumed that Clark takes up the most cap space, as he's not marquee.

So, theoretically, if you had unlimited funds, you could offer the 2 best players in the world millions to come and play here?

To be fair to Duckie, it's amazing what knowledge you can pick up when driving a cab around town. :lol:

Not a bad shout Charles for a possible alternative destination. Close to home a club with a bit of cash, a new coach and although obviously I've no idea about who's in and out of contract maybe a replacement for Leutele if he's due to leave/not happy and who won't be on tuppence ha' penny.
