Team List Changes
The NRL has made changes to the way team lists are named in 2017. The changes can be summarised as follows:
Tuesday 4pm: Announce 17 active players and four reserves (21-man squad).
24 hours before kick-off: Cut squad to 17 active players and two reserves (19-man squad).
1 hour before kick-off: Final 17-man squad announced.
Notes regarding the new team selection rules:
- If you wish to bring in a player from outside the 21-man or 19-man squad you will need to apply for an exemption which will be evaluated by the Head of Football on a case-by-case basis.
- Players named as “Reserves” on Tuesday will still be able to be named in the starting sides of NYC and Mounties.
- Any players included in the 19 man squad will be deemed ineligible for selection in the final 17 man squad if they play in a NSW/QLD Cup match prior to the NRL match.
