But it makes a joke of ISC I reckon. Perhaps a minimum of 40 minutes needs to be played for that game to count towards ISC eligibility, that would be a better policy.
What would faking injuries do though? If a player doesn't have 40 minutes on-field game time then that game shouldn't count towards eligibility. Simple. If an injury is to be taken into consideration then specific medical evidence needs to be produced and OK'd by the governing body.
The way it is at the moment I would love to see a team that for instance has top spot on the ladder sewn up a game or more out from the finals name their top 17 from 1st grade in ISC, have the game commence and then after 20 seconds haul all of the players off the field faking injury leaving the oposition out there on their own racking up a score of 200- blot. Those 17 "injured" players would still have that game counted towards ISC finals eligibility. That would expose it for the massively flawed system that it currently is.
