The Springboks are fresh off their well-earned Rugby World Cup win and are the richer for it, in more ways than one.
But, how much do the esteemed players make
According to the international community, it is rumored that the champions will get around R93 million.
However, SA Rugby president Mark Alexander stated that while World Rugby does not provide cash prizes for tournament victories, players would get win bonuses.
Pollard plays for the Leicester Tigers in England. He is possibly one of the most well-paid players in the Springboks.
The Springbok captain and South Africa’s head boy was snatched by the French Top 14 club, Racing 92.
Although it has not been confirmed in the overseas team, his former squad, the Sharks, reportedly received R17 million to release the much-wanted rugby professional.
