Each club may select two additional players during the course of the pool stages, one of whom must be a front row forward. The nominated additional player will replace a registered member of the club's squad and no club will exceed 38 players at any time during the pool stages.

The deregistered player may return to the squad at a later date during the pool stage and replace the additional player. Clubs must ensure that the additional player has not been nominated in a match squad of another club in the same tournament during the current season.

The additional player will be eligible to play in the next round of pool matches if his nomination is received by ERC by noon on the Tuesday before the match.

The player must have at least a three-month contract with the club.
