Want to know which players will have the chance to be drafted by teams in 2023? Well, you’re in the right place!
We’ve had Deadline Day and now it’s time for the next part of the 2023 player selection process – The Hundred Draft, Powered by Sage!
Let’s catch you up on what that means.
WHAT IS THE HUNDRED DRAFT, POWERED BY SAGE?
Teams will have the chance to fill in the gaps in each of their salary bands in the Draft. Each side will take it in turns to pick a player, in reverse order of where they finished in the 2022 competition.
Every player who enters the Draft will have a reserve price. They cannot be bought for less than this. But if a team wants to splash the cash and spend more than a player’s reserve price, they can!
WHEN IS THE HUNDRED DRAFT, POWERED BY SAGE?
The Hundred Draft, Powered by Sage will be taking place on Thursday 23 March, broadcast live on Sky Sports!
