The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics. This concludes the regular part of the season and we will now proceed to the Finals period, with the Quarter Finals on 20/11/14, Semi Finals on 27/11/14 and Grand Finals & Awards night on 4/12/14. Note that as usual the games on Grand Finals night (only) will commence earlier at 7pm.
Thanks everyone for another great season so far and good luck in the finals!
As mentioned last week, this week we’ll be highlighting the Fill-In Regulations, which are applicable during the Finals period of the season.
During that time, teams may not use fill-ins from other teams or non-registered players and may not field additional male players from the same team should there be less than 3 females available. To play in the Finals, a player must be registered and have played with a team at least 3 games before he/she is allowed to play for that team in the Finals. Note, that if a forfeit occurred, all players registered at the time of that game will be considered as having played that game (3.4.1).
When a team has less than 6 players (registered with that team) available to play during Finals and the missing player(s) cannot play due to medical reasons (a medical certificate must be presented to a Board member before the game), replacement fill-in(s) may be used regardless of whether they have played the minimum of 3 games with that team (6.7.1).
Any proposed deviations from the above will need to be discussed with the opposing Captain and at least one Board member as early as possible before the game (e.g. via email days before). Should the opposing team not agree with the suggested changes, then that stands and should not be subject to further objections.

With the Finals in sight, a number of Regulations become relevant. For example, as described in Section 3.4; a player must be registered and have played with a team at least 3 games before he/she is allowed to play for that team in the Finals, unless prior arrangements have been made with the Board. If a forfeit occurred, all players registered at the time of that game will be considered as having played that game.
Round 14 next week, which will be the last regular round before the start of the finals. More about the rules around finals team compositions then.

As outlined in Section 5 of the Regulations all substitutions as well as entering the pool during game time (e.g. late arrival) must take place through the “Interchange” area. This is along the sideline in the center of the game pool.
Entering the field of play pool in any other manner typically receives a warning during game time or break and can subsequently result in a minor foul, which means a turn over to be taken from the half-way line. The offending player must leave the field, play continues and re-enter through the interchange area.

Note that there are no games next week, due to Show Day. We’ll resume the season with Round 12 on 30 Oct. after which there will be 2 more rounds until the finals. As indicated on the Roster page, Quarter Finals 20/11/14, Semi Finals 27/11/14 and Grand Finals & Awards night on 4/12/14. The grand final (only) will have its customary earlier start at 7pm.
In addition to what is explained there, note that reaching into that area (as the 3rd player of your team) is also not allowed. For example, 2 players of your team are within the 2-meter area and are just outside. While very tempting, you are then not allowed to reach into the 2-meter area to grab or tap the ball away as that would be an unfair advantage.

If you are not registered (name printed on the score sheet) with the team you are playing with on game night, you are filling in. (See S. 6 Fill-in Players) of the Regulations).
The captain of the team you are filling in for is ultimately responsible for writing your name on the sheet. Where to do this has been explained many times before, but is still done incorrectly in about 80% of all cases. As explained on the score sheet example, it is written in the Fill-in section with header ‘List FILL-INS below (NO Goal Points for Fill-Ins if Registered (Y) with another team)’.
The full name of the fill-in should be written there and if the fill-in is registered with another team, circle ‘Y’, or if not registered, wait for it, circle ‘N’. Lastly, don’t forget to add the cap number and ensure that it doesn’t double-up with any of the team members.
