Player transfer fees

So, Picamoles' transfer from Northampton to Monpellier is rumored to cost the French club 1 million pounds for the transfer fee alone. Is the appearance of transfer fees in rugby a good thing?

Its not really a new thing. Newcastle paid £500k for Inga Tuigamala in 1997, Northampton paid something like £250k for George North in 2013. Tigers bought Toby Flood in 2008 and sold Andy Goode the same summer.

I think it will stay a relatively rare occurrence because typically player contracts are only 2-3 years and clubs are willing to wait for most players.
