Has the clause about being able to qualify while on overseas holiday been removed?

Yes it has a new clause stating "if you ask BSA and they say it's okay, it’s not okay anymore if some dickhead Anon keeps saying Cheatgles"

Did you get that everyone? This bloke is still living in the past, so it's not okay that BSA said it was okay.

Yeah you are right. Lets forget the Cheatgles extensive history of openly rorting the by-laws and seemingly persuasive influencing of BSA so they can continue the trend into the future.
All other PL clubs will remain vigilant in this area, trust us.

So the Southern game was cancelled on the weekend. If Southern's new import hasn't been cleared yet, but manages to play the replay in a week or two's time, should that count towards him qualifying for finals?

The very obvious answer is NO

So despite all this the Eagles still lost. Perhaps less time studying By-Law fine print and more time developing their in-house male juniors may be time better spent?

How did they go at the state champs?

Dunno, but their Premier League team starts three juniors and the majority of their bench are too.

Majority of their bench, yeah the kids that never play.
As the first user and inventor of the term Cheatgles, I love it every time it's mentioned, will never get old with Andy there.

Mavs have been shocking in the boys program for years
Oh wait who was the CD of Mavs boys for years ?
The current 5 wins in 4 years premier league coach.
Massive committee and culture problems through Mavs continues to impede their potential in a growth area.
North has certainly taken the mantle in the boys and good on them.
Southern are very average considering their size and their own supporters blinkered opinions.
Fville are getting their committee in order who are passionate and see visions so will be on the rise.
Sturt are just Sturt and rely on reputation to attract better players rather than provide decent skill based coaching.
West gone backwards.
Centrals have certainly improved over years so kudos.
Others not worthy of conversation yet.

Okay so Sturt has 7 teams at National Classic this June. How's your club doing ? Some people have trouble gathering and interpreting facts.

Yet their Premier League season highlights include beating South and not losing to Forestville by 40.
