If it helps:
- Slade is apparently (according to a list of highest paid Prem players) on £450k, Hogg £400k (and Nowell £350k).
- Slade is likely to be marquee player 1, Hogg marquee player 2 (has to come from outside the Prem)
- Hogg probably took a marquee slot from Nic White (assume £300-350k) so White’s salary would have counted towards the cap this season
- White is off to Oz, so that frees up a chunk of cap allowance for Gray who will probably be on a similar amount (Greg Holmes is also off (retiring) and as a former international tighthead will have been on ok money)

This is all the usual juggling that goes on to stay compliant. Given Exeter had only 6 players in the recent World Cup, it is probably safe to say that Exeter is not full of current internationals, who would typically command a premium. Sarries had 16 involved (although Figallo might have been injured after being named in the squad).
