An Extra Emergency added by AFL

 

The number of Emergencies named by clubs will increase from 3 to 4 from the beginning of the 2018 H&A season, the change should result in no club having to make a change from outside the group of emergencies named which has happened previously.

There were no further reasons given by the AFL for this change.

FANTASY TAKE: The initial impact is likely to be more Rucks named as Emergencies however fantasy coaches will need to be over up to date news like never before,  @aflratings will continue to be a valuable source of information on Twitter.
