Player Clearance & Transfers (Domestic within Australia)
There may be practical reasons for players to change clubs. For example, players may trial with one club but end up playing for another in the actual competition or change clubs and unions due to relocation of work.

Note: In Rugby Link a ‘CLEARANCE’ request is what has previously been known as a ‘TRANSFER’.
