Top Aussie Rugby League players about to pocket $50k payday

AUSTRALIA'S best rugby players are set to pocket about $50,000 each for a one-off game against the Great Britain rugby league team at Wembley Stadium late next year.

The Wallabies have agreed to play a hybrid match - featuring one half of rugby and one half of rugby league - at the famous venue after their 2014 Spring Tour of Europe wraps up, according to a News Limited report.

The match, to be played on December 6, is expected to tip $5 million into the coffers of the cash-strapped Australian Rugby Union.
