When you hear the words ‘most expensive centre’, names such as Australia stars Latrell Mitchell, Josh Morris or Will Chambers may come to mind.
It will come as a surprise, therefore, that the world’s highest-paid centre doesn’t actually play in the NRL, nor does he compete in Super League.
That’s because it’s Toronto flyer Ricky Leutele.
The 29-year-old was the Wolfpack’s highest-profile recruit to date when he signed from Cronulla ahead of this season, signing a deal earning him around £430,000 ($800,000) per year.
He has gone on to star for the Canadian side, scoring 18 tries in 27 games.
