New Zealand’s six Major Associations have announced the second round of players to be offered domestic contracts for the coming season.
The contracting process for domestic players involves two rounds, with each team contracting a total of 15 players overall.
Having last month announced the bulk of their first round contract offers, all of which were accepted, the six Major Associations have now completed the process with second round offers.
The two stage process is designed to generate increased competition for the final contract offers and also helps ensure the best players are contracted throughout the country.
The contract period has been extended by one month for the coming season and will run from September 1, 2016 until April 15, 2017.
Domestic schedules for the summer are expected to be announced by the end of August.
