The Rule changes

Traditional playing positions at centre bounces

* Clubs must have six players inside both 50m arcs, with one player inside the goalsquare.
* Four midfield players must start inside the centre square with the two wingmen stationed along the wing. 

Kick-ins

* At kick-ins, a player will no longer need to kick to himself to play on from the goalsquare.
* Following a behind, the man on the mark will be brought out to 10m from the top of the goalsquare, rather than the existing five metres. 

Marks and free kicks in defence 

* When defenders mark or receive a free kick within nine metres of their own goal, the man on the mark will be brought in line with the top of the goalsquare.

Runners and water carriers

* Team runners may only enter the playing surface after a goal has been kicked and must exit before play restarts.
* Water carriers are not permitted to enter the playing surface during live play.

Umpire contact

* Players will be prohibited from setting up behind the umpire at centre bounces.

50m penalties

* The player with the ball:

        * Must be allowed to advance the mark by 50m without the infringing player delaying the game.
        * Will be able to play on while the 50m penalty is being measured out.

Kicking for goal after the siren

* A player who has been awarded a mark or free kick once play has ended:

       * Will now be able to kick across their body using a snap or check-side kick
       *  BUT must kick the ball directly in line with the man on the mark and the goal.

Marking contests

* The 'hands in the back’ rule interpretation has been repealed so a player can now:
 
   * Place his hands on the back of his opponent to protect his position in a marking contest
   * PROVIDED he does not push his opponent in the back.

Ruck contests: prior opportunity

* A ruckman who takes direct possession of the ball from a bounce, throw-up or boundary throw-in will no longer be regarded as having had prior opportunity.

* Where there is uncertainty over who is the designated ruckman, the ruckman for each team will still be required to nominate to the field umpire.
