NZ Rugby World - First XV - - DECISION MAKING -

Most play­ers don’t have the rugby or con­trac­tual ex­per­tise or knowl­edge of the mar­ket to ne­go­ti­ate a con­tract with­out in­de­pen­dent pro­fes­sional ad­vice. Play­ers need to en­sure they are not taken ad­van­tage of by ad­min­is­tra­tors, who will gen­er­ally have more knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence than a player in this space. A player may find it hard to dis­cuss cer­tain is­sues di­rectly with the ad­min­is­tra­tion. Fam­ily and friends look­ing to help a player need to stay in­volved and pro-ac­tively en­gaged in help­ing the player but they also should recog­nise spe­cial­ist ad­vice and sup­port will also be re­quired, and they may not be in the best po­si­tion to pro­vide that.
