Our series revealing who we believe are the 20 highest-paid New Zealand sports people and how they make a living on and off the pitch continues today with Nos 6-10. In the course of making this list we have talked to administrators, agents, athletes and those who cover them for a living. Unlike overseas, and in particular the US, sports salaries here are not widely known, so this is not an exact science, but a close approximation. None of these sporting heroes is going to challenge the Graeme Harts of this country any time soon, but we think they're still doing pretty nicely.
As well as the All Blacks rivalry will be defined at Ellis Park this Sunday, it was perhaps better illustrated today when former Springbok Joost van der Westhuizen was welcomed at training as guest of honour.
