Football and rugby are games that seem similar but have some differences.
Football is a game of the masses while rugby is a game for the middle class. Footballers are overpaid while rugby players are undervalued. This is supported by the fact that total spend on football players per club is £80 million, while that for rugby players is £3.018 million.
90% supporters and fans of football feel that football players must take a wage cut or wage freeze. For instance famous UK footballer Wayne Rooney's daily salary is £26,000 which is the median annual salary of UK.
In terms of height and health also, rugby players are far more fit. Also, they spend twice as much time training on the field than the footballers. Rugby players suffer more injuries than footballers.
Ruby players draw a lot more respect than the footballers.
