    If true, Magic won't be able to escape the road trip to Coffs Harbour like they did this year.

    Changes to TPP introducing SAP U9s at club level approved by NNSWF Board Wednesday night. Clubs to apply for and be issued SAP Licence before they can advertise for trials to be held.

    Draw options being reviewed to have full fixture with options to start a little earlier and finish a little later.

    So not all clubs will be forced to do SAP? Thought they may make it compulsory?

    With the season now over any thoughts?
    Standout outs for me were Lakes 15s and Adamstown 14s run to the finals
    Cant believe trials start 2 days after the GF

    13/14's promised 16/18's positions
    15/16's promised 18/20's positions
    18's promised 20/1st's positions

    the circus has begun
    promises made up to capture player signatures
    sad really

    Surely this can't be correct as 15 year olds are not allowed to play senior football.
    The jets 18s were handed to 3 0 forfeit wins only weeks ago due to Magic and Edgeworth fielding 15 yr olds in their 18s teams

    But this is just promises to play doesn't mean they will play them.

    Players being asked to sign on the night of trials & if they don't their spot will be given to someone else.. At least let the kid get home and decide what he wants to do instead of forcing them to make a decision there and then

    Rule change coming in 2018 to allow clubs to apply for 2 players from 15s to be elevated to 16s as part of that squad, can't play back down into 15s but can play 18s.

    Clubs making promises without knowing criteria for approval from NNSWF.

    North Coast Football in 13s, traveling a long way, washed out games as draws so should have been premiers, strong performance on first year in comp.

    Doesn't help the kids and parents, when some clubs go out of their way to put trials on the same night, I know our TD worked in conjunction with two other TD"s working around each other, while some clubs deliberately put them on same night and times, its out of control at the moment.

    They were good value for sure. I think you need to get your calculator out though! They had 3 games washed out which they got 1 point for the draw. They dropped 6 potential points due to wash outs and Hamilton won the league with 11 points more than them! if they had won all the washouts, the best they could have come was 2nd on 50 points. One of the washouts was against the Jets early in the season, when North Coast hadn't quite hit their straps and the EJ's were red hot.

    They are a very good side, essentially a representative side, good luck to them, but they wouldn't have been premiers had they won their washouts.

    They would have a better chance of being premiers if they had the cushy draw that Hamilton had where they only played one of the top (NCF) 4-5 teams in the second round.

    They can sign and then if they get in somewhere else they can just leave can't they?

    Yes that's correct but I am not sure that parents know that? Or they feel like they should honour their commitment to the club so they stay put
