Promotion and relegation between the two division was again decided by a series of Test Matches but there was a change of format from that used in the previous three seasons. The top two clubs in Division 2 and the bottom two in Division 1 met in a mini-league. Each club played four matches - home and away matches against the two sides from the other division. At the conclusion of the matches the first and second sides in the league played in Division 1 and the third and fourth sides in Division 2.
