Are there any restrictions on how many AFL listed players we can field for finals?


16.2 FINALS ELIGIBILITY
(a) Any under 18 academy player/under 19 approved academy player is not required to play any Competition home and away matches to qualify.
(b) Any listed player must have played a minimum of three (3) Competition home and away Matches for the club to qualify to play in the Competition finals series.
(c) In the event a listed player has played five (5) matches or more in the AFL, he must have played at least nine (9) Competition home and away Matches to qualify to play in the Competition finals series.
(d) Notwithstanding anything within these Rules, should an AFL Club listed player not be selected to play for his AFL Club in an AFL match, that player will be eligible to play in the Competition finals series Match with the AFL Club Reserves team that same weekend, irrespective of whether or not he has played in a Competition Match that season.
(e) A primary or rookie listed AFL player is eligible to play in the Competition finals series Match where there is a bye/week off in the AFL competition provided he has not played in an AFL team in the week prior to the Competition finals match, irrespective of whether or not he has played in a Competition Match that season. For clarity, this means that any primary or rookie listed AFL player who did play AFL in the week prior to the Competition finals match is not eligible.

16.3 DEFINITIONS
For clarity a “listed player” is defined as an AFL Primary or Rookie List Player (includes Category A and Category B rookies).

I wonder if point (e) above - means that Cedric Cox will be ineligible for the finals?

Slightly awkward that an AFL listed player needs to have "the talk" about being dropped from the reserves, but thus is the state of the injury list.

Win tomorrow and we'll be dropping 7 listed players for 6 top-ups; three of whom won't have played for us for several weeks. Daft situation, but them's the rules.
