NRLW Salary Debate, Far Less Pay Compared To Men

Women's pay in rugby leagues has been a matter of debate for a long time. They are paid far less than their male counterparts. 

According to the stats published by Danielle Warby, the minimum salary for NRLW league players is $8,500 a year and $39,184 in the Aussie rules football. Ruby is by far the less paid sport in Australia, whereas football league players earn the most in the country. 

But 2022 saw changes in the salary department for female rugby league players. The Ampol Women's State of Origin introduced the adoption of a pay-hard salary cap, which would raise annual wages by 28%. The Australian Rugby League Council has authorized it.

NRLW teams will switch to a salary cap structure for the 2022 season, with a maximum of $350,000 per side. Additionally, clubs will be allowed to hire up to two-star players comprehensively with further salary cap clearance.

From th next year onward, the top female athlete in the game will probably make around $60,000, with those on flagship partnerships being paid more. Origin payments are also expected to climb this year from $4,000 to $6,000.
