The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics.

Weekly Rule Highlight

As described in section 7.4 of the Regulations; if a foul is committed and the player being fouled has the advantage or can even just play on immediately without obstruction, the umpires can choose to call “Advantage – Play On” (with or without blowing the whistle first).

“Play On” can also be called if both players committed a light minor foul on each other and neither was truly disadvantaged. So, more like a neutral ball situation created by two players bumping into each other at the same time while trying to get to the ball.

The umpires should ensure that neither player/team is truly disadvantaged in this scenario, and that should be applied even more stringently when the game is close and in the fourth quarter (this is not a rule, but a recommended interpretation).

The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics.

Weekly Rule Highlight

As outlined in 14.7, whenever a player takes any kind of free throw (regular free throw, neutral ball, goal line throw in (after score), corner, side line (after ball goes out), penalty):

  1. no opposing player within 2 metres of the player taking the Free Throw may contest (defend) the taking of the throw or obstruct mechanics of the throw in any way; and
  2. no opposing player may be closer than 1 metre of the player taking the Free Throw.

The umpires may allow opposing players to be slightly within the 1-metre radius where practical, as long as the main aim of not interfering with the free throw is achieved.
