It’s a massive long shot. He in all likelihood won’t be eligible. Will he even play every game or get ‘injured’ here and there…
Those rules are old as well so who knows how many of them still apply (many sound quite odd and may have been removed)
Why is it such a massive longshot???
Because you can’t just drop senior players a month out from the finals and get them to play in the Finals. It’s against the rules, he would be ineligible, and its unfair on the players who have got the team that far throughout the season.
Umm.Its In the rules.Providing Wobbie has played two reserve grade games this year.Has he not???I’m not sure.I thought he played one earlier…not sure.
So far he’s played one. Already has a ‘calf strain’ who knows how many more he’ll play.
Also, the rules listed above are a few years old. Who knows how similar they are now…?
The only way he qualifies from the old rules is if the senior side makes the finals. However due to having a NSW Cup v QLD Cup decider on grand final day, NSW cup rounds are played one week earlier than the NRL season and thus the NSW Cup finals start a week before the NRL finals do.
So obviously the above rules must now be different.
