Rule Highlight of the Week
This week we’d like to focus on the score sheets. They have been explained a number of times before, but we’re still seeing incorrectly filled in sheets, which at the very least (for you) means additional time for those recording the statistics and at most could cost you the game. We’re counting on the captains and experienced players to ensure that new & inexperienced players are instructed in the use of the score sheet as a player (before the game) and as a Duty Team member.
As shown in this example (see Regulations page), as a registered player, your name will be printed on the sheet. If not, you will be playing as a fill-in, which means your name must be written into the fill-in section. To become registered with a team, your captain must add your name on your Team Sheet and submit to Kath and myself (Dave) by end of Wednesday at the latest.
If your cap number is not pre-printed, you must write it behind your name in the Cap No field. This is each player’s responsibility. That also goes for checking pre-printed numbers. We’ve seen a number of cases where the cap numbers are pre-printed, but don’t correspond with the right player. Please make sure you correct this on the sheet before the game and follow up with your captain to have your team registration sheet updated with the correct number. If you’re playing with a different number than listed on the sheet, you will likely lose out on top scoring stats and, if the scores cannot be attributed to anyone, they can be deducted from the team total score.
The B & F Points (Best & Fairest) column is for umpires to complete and should not be used for cap numbers or to tick that you have paid the entry fee. Scores should be entered as 2’s and 3’s, not by tallying. There is a specific manner in which the score sheet must be completed and verified, as shown in the example. Should you (the Duty Team Scorer) however still have questions, please ask one of the umpires well before the game starts. Note that the score sheet is the authoritative source regarding points. In other words, if the score board differs from the score sheet, it will be adjusted to what has been written on the score sheet.
Last but not least, the Duty Team member who notes the scores on the sheet must enter his/her name in the ‘Duty Team Scorer’ field, which allows the stats coordinators to follow up directly in case of questions or mistakes. Hopefully that gives everyone a fair idea of what’s expected but as always, should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask here or on game nights.
