Who do you reckon was the best-paid New Zealand sportsman in London last week?
One of the veterans of the All Blacks’ World Cup winning squad like World Player of the Year Dan Carter or All Blacks captain Richie McCaw? How about one of the stars in the prime of their career, like Sonny Bill Williams?

It is hard to argue that Reid has to work as hard for their money as the likes of Carter or McCaw, but that is the economies of professional sport.
