You may remember that we altered rule 3d this year in order to ease the situation in finding substitutes.

A Division 1 west team found itself inadvertently and in the committee view,unfairly disadvantaged in trying to replace an injured third position player. We have therefore added a further amendment to the substitute rule, as follows.

Rule 3d

A nominated player can substitute in any division but may not skip or play above second position if subbing down to a lower division. If subbing up to a higher division, they may play in any position .

Bill Nicol: I wonder if you would kindly make this alteration for the Province website.
