There has been a lot of talk recently about the new Premier League football TV deal, and how it affects Super League – not just in terms of whether Super League deserves more money, but whether it means rugby league fans will be left out of pocket paying for a Sky subscription to see their favourite sport.
So it seemed an ideal opportunity to compare Super League and the Premier League, and here’s what was found:
– Not surprisingly, Huddersfield Giants have the shortest away travel ahead of them this season
– Wayne Rooney makes more in a year than the salary cap for all SL teams
– Super League players are on average 16kg heavier than their footballer counterparts
