NTFL Breach Notice issued to SDFC Women's Premier League team

AFL Northern Territory (AFLNT) advises that Southern Districts Football Club has been issued with a breach notice following the Round 2 TIO NTFL Women's Premier League game played between Southern Districts and Wanderers Football Club at Norbuilt Oval on Sunday 13 November.
The AFLNT football operations team had been advised that Southern Districts played 23 players in the game and upon receipt of the team list and information provided it appeared 16 players were on the field and seven on the interchange.
This is a breach of AFLNT Rules and Regulations (2019 - 2020 edition):

3.9.1. Teams competing in any Competition shall have no more than the following maximum number of Players per team:
(c) Senior Women (including Premier League): 22 (16 on field + 6 interchange)

3.9.3 If a team commences a match, or at any time during a  match, has more than the prescribed number of Players on the interchange bench, that team will be deemed to have forfeited the match.

Based on the above, Southern Districts were today notified that the game in question will be amended to indicate a forfeit by Southern Districts; the result will be updated to show a Wanderers 60 - 0 win, as per usual forfeit guidelines.
In accordance with AFLNT Rules and Regulations, Southern Districts has the right to appeal as per the appeals process outlined under section 9.1. A notice for appeal must be received by AFLNT by 5pm tomorrow (Wednesday).
