Coaches are permitted to address players at the end of the game whilst the Goal Umpires confer. Players must be in position to recommence the game prior to the goal umpires returning to their position. 5.2 On receiving confirmation that the scores are level, the match shall recommence with the teams kicking to the same end as in the final quarter and two five-minute periods with time on (as appropriate) shall be played with teams changing ends after the first five-minute period immediately the siren sounds.

In all AFL Barwon Senior Women s matches, any player receiving a yellow or red card may be replaced immediately. A player receiving a red card is to remain off the field for the remainder of the game. A player receiving a yellow card can return to the field after 15 minutes of playing time has elapsed. 6.1 The maximum number of players a team can play is 23.
5 5 6.2 For all AFL Barwon competitions, Clubs shall be required to field a minimum of 14 players to commence the game. Failure to do so will result in their side forfeiting the match. 6.3 If any irregularities are noted on the Interchange sheet, the Commission shall have the power to determine a fine and to deal with the match as they deem appropriate. 6.4 It is the responsibility of the timekeepers to ensure that players ordered from the ground under a yellow card, remain off for fifteen minutes of actual playing time and those ordered from the ground under a red card remain off for the remainder of the game. All Clubs must have installed red and green lights for the purpose of acknowledgment of the umpires carding decisions and the notification to the Clubs when the player (yellow card only) is eligible to return the playing field. The timekeepers must therefore: a. Identify the umpire s signal (a yellow or red card), which indicates a player has been ordered off; b. Acknowledge the umpire s decision by flashing the red light on and off or other signal by holding aloft the appropriate card; c. Record the relevant amount of actual playing time from the moment the player crosses the interchange area in the space provided on the time cards (failure to record the implementation of this rule on the timecards will result in a $30 penalty) ; and d. Signal the conclusion of the fifteen-minute penalty by signaling through the use of the green light. The interchange steward will continue to record the change as has been the case. The onus remains with the clubs to ensure that the procedure operates effectively. NB: In the event of more than one player being off at any given time, the onus is on the Club to confer with the interchange steward/timekeepers to determine which player is eligible to come on. e. Any player ordered off under a red card is not permitted to take any further part in the game 6.5 Clubs in breach of procedure: In the event a Club believes an opposition player has returned to the field early, that Club must call a team count to verify the number of players on the ground and the score at that particular time. The Umpire will record the result of the count on the Umpire s Match Report. Where a Team has more than the permitted number of players on the Playing Surface, the following shall apply: a. a field umpire shall award a Free Kick to the captain or acting captain of the opposing team, which shall be taken at the Centre Circle or where play was stopped, whichever is the greater penalty against the offending team. b. a Fifty (50) Metre Penalty shall then be imposed from the position where the Free Kick was awarded; and c. The Goal Umpires shall write the current scores as at the time of the Head Count on their Score Card d. the matter will be referred to the League to investigate and ultimately determine the outcome as they see fit - note that the offending team does not lose all points scored in the Match up to the time of the count on matchday. 7. Interchange Steward 7.1 The Home Club is responsible for the appointment of an interchange steward for each game. 7.2 The responsibilities of the interchange steward are outlined in AFL Laws of the Game Rule 7. The Interchange Steward will record the jumper numbers of players who commence on the interchange bench at the commencement of each quarter. It is the responsibility of team managers from both competing Clubs to notify the appointed Interchange Steward of the jumper numbers of these players at the commencement of the game and then at the end of each quarter break. The interchange steward must also record details (time and jumper number) of players who have been ordered from the ground (yellow or red card), and those either stretchered off or sent off due to the blood rule, both when they leave the ground and when they return, Penalty $100 (offending Club)

Out of Bounds In the Senior Women s competition, the Last Possession Rule will apply. A Free Kick shall be awarded against a player who: Kicks or Handballs the football over the Boundary Line without the football being touched by another Player; For the purposes of defining a kick, a kick shall be an intentional action, not accidental. When the ball comes off the foot or lower leg of a player without the intent of the player being to kick the ball, it will be deemed accidental contact and will not be determined as a kick by the umpire and therefore will result in a ball-up 15 metres in from the boundary. Where a Player who does not have possession stops the football being touched by an Opposition Player by Shepherding the ball across the Boundary Line where the ball could have otherwise been touched by the player being blocked, then the umpire will not award a free kick but will instead order a ball-up 15 metres in from the boundary. 13.
