the SMH is reporting changes to the salary cap/ conditions for next year
- salary cap likely to be reduced by 10%
- annual leave to be 7 weeks instead of the current 6 weeks
- 30 man squads to remain
- senior players only required to play one pre-season trial
- origin payments (at least for 2020) likely to be reduced as 30k per match is not feasibile
The top-30 squads will remain next year, but there will be some hip-pocket pain for players as the salary cap comes down by about 10 per cent.
