For the Love of the Game

George North has been making waves recently for being sold to “Real Madrid for £86m. His wages are reported to be £300,000 after tax in a deal that turned his parents into millionaires after he gave them a 20% stake in his company.”

Obviously there is going to be shock waves sent through out the rugby world as not all regions can afford to deal with the effects of a trade of the magnitude, especially when competing in the Heineken cup.

Do you believe this is going to have a negative effect on the popularity of the Heineken cup and the domestic Rugby season?
