Very few rugby players have 'prices' on their heads. Unlike footballers they see out their contracts before moving clubs. You can determine their worth by their wages. If their wages are partly funded by the RFU (Jason Robinson for e.g.) they are very valuble. Jason Robinson wouldnt be playing Union now if the RFU wouldnt have paid part of his contract. Sale Sharks simply couldnt afford him.

Like I said have a look at Leeds Tykes, that will be an interesting example. I'll can give you information about Orrell until i'm blue in the face. Like Mark said the most important thing will be to look at why Union copied league and went professional.

Laws to do with what?
