I think that you may find , as Wuss have , that you sometimes have to pay above the going rate to get players to come to a side that is yet to establish itself in the premiership. An average of c 150k doesn't sound out of the way to me.
I would suggest that Afoa and Madigan are on over 300k each to start with.

Suggests that an average of 150k isn't that unrealistic, although i accept the 200k is presumably inflated by Marquee players, etc

I only based my comments on what I hear at Wuss. I would expect that there are few premiership squad players that are much below six figures p.a.
Ruskin went to Glos for 330k plus bonus - a loosehead yet to play for his country.

That's madness. Lam has been quoted saying we signed multiple players rather than Harry Williams from Exeter because his wage demands were enormous.

You get what you pay for.

Rebels release England-bound former captain Nic Stirzaker
07:41 18/05/2018

Melbourne The Melbourne Rebels have released former captain Nic Stirzaker, who will leave the Super Rugby team to play in England for Bristol.

After leading the Rebels for two seasons, Stirzaker joined English side Saracens in January on a short-term injury cover. However with test halfback Will Genia and ex-Western Force playmaker Michael Ruru now at the Rebels, Stirzaker decided his future was elsewhere.

"After ongoing dialogue between the club and Stirzaker's management, it has been agreed the scrum-half will remain in the United Kingdom after agreeing to a multi-year deal with recently promoted Bristol Rugby Club," the Rebels said in a statement on Friday.
Stirzaker played 60 matches for the Rebels.
Nice to see hes been released early giving him plenty of time To have a break, settle in to Bristol and the club.



Bristol, like the glass is Blue, Bristol Blue.

To counter that, I know for a cast iron fact that a lot of the younger squad players at the Chiefs get paid closer to 20% of that number.
