The Executive want to remind clubs that:
- rules around eligibility/qualification to play in a finals series were updated before this season. It is each club's responsibility to ensure they have enough qualified players if they are competing in finals (no exemption requests will be accepted by the Executive this season under Rule 19.4);
- in each grade, finals series are only two weeks with the agreement from the AGM to shorten the season (1 v 4 & 2 v 3 with winners competing in GFs); and
- in each grade, those teams not competing in finals will be required to nominate two umpires and will be assigned a match to officiate.
