List change rules for the next year. Basically the key takeaway from me is we can get to include over-age Hawthorn (eligible but overlooked in their initial draft ) Father-Son and NGA as extra numbers on the VFL list if I'm interpreting correctly.

Summary of VFL rules changes:
  • VFL clubs will have a development list introduced, made up of 19-year-old players.
  • All clubs will be required to play 23 players per match, which will include 1 x 19-year-old development player and 1 x under-21 player (i.e traditional 23rd player).
  • List structures for 2020 will be as follows:
    • Non-AFL clubs can list up to 46 players, including 40 x primary listed players and 6 development list players.
    • AFL aligned clubs can list up to 36 players, including 30 x primary listed players and 6 x development list players.
    • AFL clubs can list up to 30 players, including 24 x primary list players and 6 x development list players.
  • An additional rookie list of two players is available to all VFL teams which will include NGA players and players who meet the AFL category B Rookie criteria.
  • A father/son rule will be introduced in 2020 which allows a club to list a player whose father played 100 games or more for the club (including AFL and AFL aligned clubs). These players will be listed on a club’s development list.
  • Aside from current finals eligibility rules, no other playing restrictions will apply in the finals series.

Maybe this is a nice way of bringing in Tom graham, toussaint from eastern, Todd garner etc next year without necessarily committing a HFC spot for them yet
Toussaint was from Gippsland and has gone AWOL, but you’re probably pretty spot on. Graham, Garner and possibly Pepper if HFC don’t pick him up, would all be options.

Ex-lions Ben Keays incoming


Reported elsewhere that ex Sun jack Leslie, who Paul Amy had previously reported was on BHH’s radar, may instead turn up at Casey
Fantastic get - although I would have taken odds on that he would have ended up on the Suns rookie list but it appears that now won't be happening.

What are the chances of Angus Hanrahan - Ollie's brother - finding his way to Box Hill City Oval after being overlooked in the draft??
