Toulon, especially, seem to buy 'name' players like nobody-s business. I don't know how much the coach has to do with these decisions, or whether the owner's doing a low-rent Abramovich and just throwing money at anyone he likes the look of.


Interesting you mention Toulon and Chelsea. One could say the latter club is run in a comical fashion, whereas the former is run by a man who made his fortune selling comics.

I have no interest in the other lot, but I suspect that they have far bigger squads than we do, so the NRL may already be able to pay more per player.
