Still saying that nonsense about CP, but whatever. We know how inaccurate RIL are.

Rinkadink - are you referring to him being the best paid player in the world as of joining us? I assumed that this was factual not that it bothers me. I know a lot of people on here reject that, is there some information on this that I am missing?

The fact that everyone from the club says CP is not on the money that has been widely reported? Either we accept they are telling the truth or they are all lying. I think it is simple courtesy to accept what the club says at face value.

That report doesn't mention how much he is on but just that he is highest paid player in world. Not sure club have denied that

Who went to France recently on silly money? Not a rhetorical question as I've forgotten. Was reportedly huge though.

Gray Lensmann i don't recall reading on any official statements what he is getting paid or whether or not he's the highest paid player in the world...

I mean i would expect it to be true if I'm honest, not that i really care at all. I was just wondering if there was a statement i missed or something as most people on here seem adamant that its not true

You've missed several; from the top of my head both Lam and Tainton have said its not the figure the media were quoting and it's less.

That's not the question being asked here. They've quite clearly denied he is being paid £1m a year, but have the club denied whether he is the highest paid player in the world?

Although, without being privy to other clubs accounts, not sure they would know the answer to that.

Dan Carter was reportedly on 1.4 million in France, Giteau was probably around 1 million EU, there was that Japanese player I forget who got a million for one season plus Goosen?

Clearly CP is nowhere near the highest paid rugby player at present as the club have said the reports are untrue.

Giteau is on £900K. Carter on £1.4M as is Goromaru. Finn Russell got a £1/4M CAR as a signing on fee alone from a french club. They'll also have far more significant win bonuses than Charlie so I'd say it's pretty bloody obvious that CP won't be the highest paid player in the world. He's coming from Ulster FFS, how much do you think he'll have been on there?
I quite like rugbyinsideline, you just have to realise that he's a major sensationalist. gets likes and views dunnit?

I remember it being a fairly weak denial by the club It said the reports were “inaccurate” but didn’t say how. The official statement from them also mentioned that they would be adhering to the salary cap. It’s obvious that CP will be a marquee player and fall outside of the cap.

I don't think anyone has said CP is on peanuts and isn't a marquee signing, he's obviously on a decent amount but it's not ludicrous. The club did state it was lower, I think that may have come from Taints at the Q&A but may be mistaken. Either way the club have said this on multiple occasions both in the press and elsewhere. It's been put to bed.

Poor media outlets and social media are keeping the BS alive, sadly. Look at our signings, some decent wages for sure but nothing really out there. Pat has been quite astute and balanced.

Carter’s contract is up. Russell is reported to be on £700k a year. CP was on about £500k at Ulster. How much do you think CP would want before signing for a club that had just been relegated to the Championship?

I don’’t recall them confirming it was lower. Clubs don’t normally come out with clear statements on players’ salaries. Even if Taints did, it might just be £1k lower - it doesn’t tell us much.

We have no idea how astute and balanced Lam has been. We don’t know all the wages and we don’t know yet how the team will perform. Let’s wait to see how the season pans out first.

Suggesting double is preposterous, and denied by the club who I don't believe would flat out lie. I certainly trust them more than I do rumourmongers who are wrong as much as they are right.

One of the major reasons CP signed was so that he could play with his brother again before he retires. Signing SP was an astute bit of business
