The AFL has made nine rule changes for next season

The AFL has made nine rule changes for next season.

The league told clubs on Thursday that the Commission had approved the changes after more than a year of consultation.

The 6-6-6 starting position rule will be implemented.

The hands-in-the-back rule has been scrapped.

Players will no longer need to kick to themselves to play on from the goalsquare after a behind.

Team runners and water carriers won’t be allowed on the field while play is live, only between goals.

A ruckman who takes direct possession of the ball from a bounce, throw-up or boundary throw-in will no longer be regarded as having had prior opportunity.

You can learn more about the changes here.
