There are several key changes and some of these are time-sensitive:

(i) Following any case that has an automatic suspension (red card, 5/10/15 cautions) all suspensions will commence seven days from the date of the offence. The onus is on the player and club to ensure the suspension is served irrespective of whether paperwork is received or not.

(ii) If a late fine is applied this will be due 14 days from the issue of the fine and will amount to 25% of the original amount invoiced. Failure to pay will result in a club suspension on the first Monday seven days after the monies were due.

(iii) If a late response fine is applied this will be due 14 days from the issue of the fine and will amount to 25% of the original amount invoiced. Failure to pay will result in a team suspension on the first Monday seven days after the monies were due.
