Show me the money


Bryan Habana has been made a offer from French club Bayonne for 400,000 Euros a year this has been the largest offer for a player even by French standards who do seem to have the cash to throw around at the moment.


Other clubs that are in interested is another French club called Toulouse; Bryan is looking at his options nice problem for him to have considering his salary would be tax free.


This will screw up Peter De Villiers hard line attitude to foreign based players playing for the boks, our rugby administrators need to stop living in their ivory tower and face reality that our top players will be poached by clubs with very deep pockets.


South African players who are based overseas are John Smit ,Victor Matfield, Percy Montgomery and Butch James.

It seems that, at least this time, Habana won't go to France. It is always the same thing with southern hemisphere players: they grow up in the south and the north just buys them.
Last week there was a lot of noise with Ulster trying to gather money to buy Flavell and Evans from the Auckland Blues.

Habana is without a doubt the deadliest finisher in world rugby right now and would be worth every penny. There's simply no winger that can match him at present. Paul Sackey is top class but even he does not compare.
