WHAT HAPPENS IF I SUSPECT THAT MY OPPONENTS HAVE PLAYED AN INELIGIBLE PLAYER?
If you suspect that an ineligible player may be about to take the field against you, in the first instance you need to notify your match official who will make a note of your allegation.
PLEASE NOTE: Your match official is not responsible for preventing the player from taking part unless he can positively identify an offence. i.e. the match official recognises the player and knows that he is not listed on the team sheet and/or listed under a false name.

If you have a camera phone, take a picture of the alleged offender and then contact the League Secretary in writing including any supporting evidence.

PLEASE NOTE: This type of offence is taken very seriously and every effort will be made to bring any offender to book. However, this is often difficult to prove so you must endeavour to provide as much evidence as possible.
