The AFL as announced three rule tweaks for 2021, designed for more attacking play and lead to higher scoring.
The changes include:
- AFL clubs will be restricted to 75 interchanges per match, as part of a series of rule changes.
- The location of the mark at kick-ins will be set at 15 metres from the centre of the kick-off line.
- Players standing on the mark will only be allowed ‘minimal’ lateral movement.
On Friday, Seven sports journo Ryan Daniels broke it down for The Bunch, beginning with the man-on-the-mark rule.
“I turned up to work yesterday and my producer said, ‘so, hold on, you have to stand like a statue?’,” he said.
“Like netball?” Lisa queried.
