New Zealand's next generation of young stars, a splash of international talent and a strong core of established names are spread across the five Super Rugby squads named to contest the competition's 25th year.

No fewer than 46 'rookies', defined as those players who have signed their first full-time Super Rugby contracts, are among the 195 players contracted to the Blues, Chiefs, Crusaders, Highlanders and Hurricanes for the 2020 season.

There are also nine international players with all five clubs fielding at least one, seven sets of siblings, and 11 players whose fathers also played Super Rugby.
