Diggers ask for introduction of rugby transfer window

Diggers Rugby Club have asked to the Zambia Rugby Union to introduce player transfer windows to curb the indiscriminate movement of players during the season.

The Zambia Rugby League has been hit by a raft of unregulated movement of players with Diggers losing 14 players alone during the course of the 2017 season.

“I think the Union should come in over this issue. I think that clubs should be protected by the Union,” Diggers coach Lawrence Njobvu said.

“It is very frustrating for clubs to be losing players anyhow.

“We cannot have players moving from one club to the next every week. We need something to tie players to a club.

“The Union should come up with something to tie up the players probably like it is done in football when they move mid-way or at the end of the season.”

Despite the flurry or unregulated transfers, Diggers are holding their own and are 3rd on the table, tied on 38 points with defending champions and 2nd placed Arrows from nine games with two matches in hand each.

Diggers’ arch-rivals Kitwe Playing Fields are 1st on 51 points fro 12 games played.
