New Zealand Rugby Chief Rugby Officer Nigel Cass said welcomed the onset of the domestic competitions season as the rugby that stirred up true provincial pride.
“Our domestic competitions are incredibly special, holding a popular place in the rugby calendar, bringing together communities across the country and identifying the next crop of rugby super stars.
“The Mitre 10 Cup is a unique competition with provincial stalwarts lining up alongside emerging stars, it always produces great rugby. The Farah Palmer Cup is a competition that continues to grow and with the introduction of professional contracts for our Black Ferns it is sure to see the level of rugby reach new heights,” said Cass.
