The Premier Pitch has reminded me strictly limited to 10, and the players assigned to one half of the pitch should remain in that half. I will have to rely on captains to enforce these requirements. It should be a foul for a player to cross the halfway line from his designated half.
Add to the list below the names of players who are confirmed for the game. Only GIFFA Players are allowed to add names.
In the first 24 hours after this post, each GIFFA Player is limited to putting the name down for one other GIFFA Player (apart from himself).In the next 24 hours after this post, each GIFFA Player is limited to putting the name down for one more GIFFA Player. The restrictions of one or two others in the first 24 or 48 hours applies even if the player does not put his own name down.
No guests are allowed in the first 48 hours. After 48 hours, there is a maximum of 1 guest per player, until 48 hours before the game. Guests must be 21 or above in the current year. In the last 24 hours before the game, places are opened to any male aged 18 or above. In the last 12 hours, the age restriction is reduced to 16 (provided that a responsible adult is playing and remains present).
All GIFFA Players are presumed to be sufficiently familiar with "The GIFFA System" and the "Playing Rules & Principles" threads. Guests should be provided with salient information contained in those threads by the GIFFA Player adding his name.
When I create the WhatsApp group chat for the game (30 hours or less before the game), if a player owes for more than one previous game, I may move the player to the bottom of the list of name (including any waitlist).
As set out above, the session is scheduled to start 10 minutes before the hour. The first 10 minutes are for team selectors to meet the players and consider any changes in line ups, as well as discuss formation, team organization and tactics. The game starts on the hour sharp.
