Ben probably firs this part of the rules:
As well as residing in a certain club's region, to be eligible the player must be born or have one parent born in Asia or Africa; be of Indigenous background residing in a remote region; or have both parents born in a non-English speaking country (not Asia or Africa).
But this is the bit that is stumping everybody:
Clubs will need to send their nominations for potential category B recruits by August 15, with a full list to be circulated by the AFL by the end of August.
I suppose the AFL has tweeked this rule a little more and we are the winner for a change.
Thanks for clarifying the rule. And what a crappy rule it is. You could drive a truck through the loopholes (and we did).
Why the hell one parent born in Asia or Africa qualifies you, and a parent born in say South America or a Pacific island doesn't, is pretty random. And the lack of definition of what constitutes "indigenous background" or "a remote region" is just asking for trouble. What defines a "non English speaking country"? (I suppose it is safe to say Switzerland is non English speaking.)
Typical AFL when it comes to rules. I suppose their legal head Dillon pored over it and gave it his approval. Bloody genius.
