KEY RULES/NOTES

– TEAM UNIFORMS – by week 4 all teams are to be in completely matching shirts and numbered. From week 4 onwards a penalty of 1 try PER PLAYER out of uniform will be awarded to the opposing team prior to starting the game (the referee will make a clear note of this and make it aware to both teams).

– OFFICIAL OZTAG SHORTS/TIGHTS – players are required to wear official Australian Oztag shorts or tights.

Under no circumstances are players allowed to sew velcro patches onto pants/tights or wear LEAGUE TAG shorts/tights. Shorts ($30) and Tights ($35) will be available at all registration days along with competition venues each week.

– SIGN ON SHEETS – all players are required to report to the canteen so we can sign you on each week prior to taking the field. If players fail to sign on points may be deducted (forfeit for less than 5 players signing on) as well as breaching insurance rules.

– BACKING UP – any teams who do not have 8 players to take the field are able to find a backup player who is currently registered in the same season at any of our venues however must be in an equal or lower grade/age.  Teams cannot get back up players to create substitutes in the team, they are only to fill the team to 8 players. Teams caught playing unregistered players or playing back up players without notifying competition staff will forfeit the game (5-0 loss). You must have at least 5 of your registered players playing or the game will be considered a forfeit.

If you think your opposition is breaching the rules and playing unregistered players please notify competition staff during or before the game (not after the fact with no proof).

– ELIGIBILITY FOR FINAL SERIES – All players who were registered in a team from the start of the comp are eligible. Players that join after round 1 must play a minimum of 4 games to qualify.
