Major Associations announce first round of domestic contracts for 2014-15

New Zealand’s six Major Associations today announced the players offered first round domestic contracts for the coming season.

The contracting process for domestic players involves two rounds, with each team to contract a total of 15 players overall. The Major Associations can offer 9-14 contracts at their discretion in the first round and then complete the process to their full contingent with second round contracts being offered on 8 August 2014.

The two stage contracting process will ensure increased competition for the final contracts to be offered at Major Association level and should also help to ensure the best players are contracted throughout the country.

The domestic contracts offered today commence 1 October 2014.
