The most important positions are the Numbers 1,6,7 & 9. With rare exceptions these are the positions that command the big dollars because you can't win a premiership without outstanding players in all 4 of them. For a 1st rate fullback, clubs will pay $550,000pa plus. The amount offered to Hiku of $333,000pa is NOT what you would offer a player you thought was going to be your number 1. It would be an insult. It is however an amount you would offer a pretty good utility player that could cover your backline.
