Rugby league immortal Andrew Johns has named the seven NRL players that are worth a $1 million price tag.

Johns believes Manly's Trbojevic brothers are both deserving of the lucrative seven-figure salary, stating Tom should command the biggest contract in the league.

"Tom and Jake at Manly," Johns told Nine's Wide World of Sports.

"I think if I had to spend the most, and I was building a club from scratch, the first bloke I'd buy would be Turbo Tommy."

Johns dubbed Roosters star fullback James Tedesco "the most dangerous player in the game" and "definitely" worth $1 million.

The former Knights great believes Storm duo Cameron smith and Cameron Munster should also be amongst the game's highest paid players.

"Cameron Smith, because he's still the most influential player in the competition despite how old he is. Cameron Munster, stands up in the big moments. The bigger the occasion the better he goes."

Rounding out Johns' million dollar men were North Queensland's Jason Taumalolo and Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

"Taumalolo for obvious reasons, and he's on that sort of money for the next 10 years. And the only other one I think would be Roger Tuivasa-Sheck."

  1. What about the other 7 roosters already being paid over $1m each after just being revealed Third Party Ted is on around $1.3M including his third party payments?

  2. MR EDwooddope are you talking about the well educated, NSW Origin star and next Australian Captain?
    If he’s overrated where do has been Crighton and Murray’s Origin personal assistant baggage boy Radley rate?

  3. If the Trbojevic brothers at Manly demanded a million a season each, Manly would be in a terrible position if they paid it. As DCE is also on a million per season. 3 million between just the 3 players. Then 7 for the other 27 players in the squad.
    Kind of makes you wonder how the Chickens can fit in so many high priced players, with money to spare? Creative accounting?
