Ayumu Goromaru (Toulon) worlds best paid rugby player, and a bit of Super Rugby.

This is a list of the worlds highest paid rugby players according to The Telegraph. Good to see we have least one player in the top 10 - as many as England or Wales anyway. Pretty ludicrous that the top payed player is not known even to most rugby fans. Toulon obviously want to sell jerseys in Japan.

Elsewhere, it's the final round of Super Rugby. I had a look at the all the possible permutations, but as I don't have a doctorate in quantum physics I found them quite difficult to follow. I know the Lions and Stormers have done well anyway. Overall, the Jaguares, Sunwolves and Kings have been very disppointing additions, although in fairness it is their first season. The two prime match ups this weekend are the Crusaders v the Hurricanes, and the Highlanders v the Chiefs. Make the effort to watch them if you can, you won't be disappointed!
