    My guess is 16.2e only applies if you haven't qualified for 16.2b

    In terms of Harry C's eligibility: could it just be that an agreement between the teams trumps the rules? Did we allow the Suns to play any players that might not otherwise have been eligible in turn?

    Question: why are there 5 not 4 on the interchange benches?

    Aside: it was good to see Coach Shaw plug Murray, Fisher and Pink on the Swans website when he was interviewed about this game and the NEAFL team.

    I'm hoping to make it out to Blacktown tomorrow to cheer the team on.

    Yes most of the Suns ins played last week against Port Adelaide in the AFL.

    Can you recall in which thread you posted the eligibility rules? I tried to go back and read them again but couldn't locate the thread.

    LOL. I'd actually just gone and found it and read the relevant sections myself (though confusingly they're not in section 8 entitled "Finals" (where you will find eligibility rules for non-AFL clubs) but instead stuck in section 16 ("Special Requirements").

    Having read them again, I am none the wiser as to how Cunningham is eligible to play this weekend unless there is also some provision for an application to be made under special circumstances. If there is such a provision, I can see why an allowance might be made for someone like Cunningham - on the injury comeback trail, might be needed for AFL finals, needs more game time rather than further rest, probably wouldn't have played senior AFL last week had it not been for the injuries to Hanners and Papley, has at least played some NEAFL this year. Playing him isn't taking the piss out of the spirit of the eligibility rules (as playing Hanners would be).

    I have to presume (because I can't be bothered to check) that most of the returning Suns players qualify on the basis of having played sufficient NEAFL games during the season. Certainly those who have played senior footy have just played the odd game here and there (I think).

    You mean "played". I hope our Reserves remind them about how well they "played" all day long tomorrow.

    Yes, was one of the most inept performances seen on an AFL stage in a long time. I know they've had a long injury list for three years now but hard to know if they have upside or are a genuine basket case developing. Next coach has his work cut out.

    Swans - 13 players with senior experience and 368 games
    Suns - 17 players with senior experience and 658 games

    Should be a tough contest based on these stats

    May I suggest our players have had to work harder to get those games
