Rapid League is believed to be a world first, with the games set to play prior to every Tauihi clash in 2023. Each Rapid League game will consist of four by four-minute quarters, played mostly under the same rules.
The starting five players selected for the Tauihi game, which immediately follows the Rapid League contest, cannot play in the earlier clash – meaning the Rapid League is reserved only for the seven players selected to come off the bench in the later game.
The new competition will include its own championship ladder - with wins in the Rapid League also earning points on the official Tauihi ladder - plus Rapid League will have a season MVP and other individual awards.
All memberships and single game tickets will give you access to both the Rapid League and Tauihi game. You will get twice the action for the same ticket price!
