No denying the problems both rugby codes face on an international scale:
Sonny Bill Williams will be unveiled as the highest-paid player in the history of either code of rugby next week after agreeing a two-year deal with Toronto Wolfpack. The 34-year-old has agreed to return to the 13-man code with the Super League newcomers, who will pay him a reported £2.6m annual salary – a figure which exceeds the total annual spend of every other league club in the northern hemisphere.

What's your point?
Don't mind discussing the implications of Sonny Bill Williams contract but your commentary is generally indecipherable
This seems more analogous to Israel Folau at the Giants than anything else.....or not even that as I doubt many people in Toronto would have heard of SBW either. They would have been better off offering that kind of money to a top NRL player surely if the object was to help them win?
