The ‘Top 10’ Highest Paid Rugby Players In Ireland


On this article we are going to acquainted about top 10 highest paying rugby players in Ireland. You may be surprised after watching the list. This list is created by sportda and you may find other players on this list from various sources. Let’s check it out…

Number 10: Cian Healy
Net Worth: €400,000



Starting to show the kind of form that earned him his contract a couple of years back. Still strange that Leinster has him and McGrath on huge central contracts, despite being the same position, in the same province.



Number 9: CJ Stander

Net Worth: €440,000


Reportedly almost doubled his wages after recently committing his long-term future to Munster and Ireland with a new three-year central deal.



Number 8: Rob Kearney

Net Worth: €450,000


This central deal expires in the summer, and it would be crazy to think he will get something similar. Likely will be demoted to a provincial worth a little over half this.


Number 7: Robbie Henshaw

Net Worth: €450,000


Signed a nice big fat central contract when he moved from Connacht to Leinster, and it was money well spent. A rock in Ireland’s midfield, and still only 24. Will only get better.



Number 6: Tadhg Furlong

Net Worth: €450,000


The IRFU got off easy here. It’s a gigantic raise on his old deal, but Furlong’s stock is constantly on the rise. The best tighthead in the world right now and coveted by every country and club in the world.



Number 5: Peter O’Mahony

Net Worth: €500,000


Played hardball with the IRFU in recent weeks to make sure he got the contract he felt he deserved. Likely to be Ireland’s next captain, so money well spent if you ask us.



Number 4: Sean O’Brien

Net Worth: €550,000


Another man who’s injury record isn’t the best, but when he’s on form he’s unstoppable.



Number 3: Conor Murray

Net Worth: €550,000


Could probably make double this if he left, he’s that good. The best nine in world rugby, he’s worth every penny, if not more.



Number 2: Jamie Heaslip

Net Worth: €600,000


Out since March with a back injury and with no definitive timeline for his return, this could be looked at as bad investment on the IRFU’s part. Even if he was fit, at his age it’s a lot of money. Especially with the likes of Conan and Stander already on the books.



Number 1: Johnny Sexton

Net Worth: €650,000


There was only one way to get this man back from France, and it was to offer him a damn good contract. while his injury record isn’t the best at the times, there’s no doubting his ability. Alongside Murray, he’s formed arguably the best halfback partnership in the world.
