Some details of how DR will work in the 2015 season have been released by the RFL.
Clubs will be allowed 5 DR players PLUS 1 loan player in their matchday 17.
After 23 games when the leagues split in to 3 groups of 8, the SL club and the Championship club will decide which club the DR player has to be assigned to for the remainder of the season, i.e. the 7 play-off games and any finals, etc. Players will still have to have played in 3 games for the Championship club before the split in order to play in any others.
