Appears to be some stories getting about that both GVL junior comps , u18’s & u16’s, will have sides missing .
Given 2020 was a lost season and coming back from that was going to place strain on that difficult age group , perhaps the introduction of U16’s should have been put on hold .
Yeah I agree. And no tackling also I’m hearing. Players must keep social distancing on the ground.Hearing that supporters cannot go into the rooms, attend team huddles at 1/4 and 3/4 time, no handshakes or high fives. FFS what is the use of a vaccine if this circus continues? I can go into a pub, have a wrestle, shake hands and high five anybody... the world is cooked !
I think the varying of age groups across a region is detrimental. Tends to see the better players swap around annually between clubs and comps to play top age , which further sees the second and 3rd tier players , who are generally just late developers , miss out on a game and loose interest in the sport . It also teaches poor habits at a young age .Why not have under 15 & 17 roar, shouldn't most 18 year Olds be playing seniors and pushes more numbers into the reserves.
I reckon that like most things at present regarding where you can go at the footy will be a rolling rulebook, where if the covid Vax works, then rules will relax further into the season.
On another note, I see someone put out which league which country league has produced the most AFL players and most games since 1897, with Bendigo topping the list
Silver that is often because the player hasn’t finalised the clearance .No bootz I was looking at the clearances page today and noticed while it was lodged in November it was still pending. Happy days for the Bombers!
