The WRFL will adopt a number of new rules and interpretations in its football competitions in season 2019.

These new rule changes and interpretations have been made in-line with the changes the AFL introduced in October.

The WRFL will adopt all changes consistent with the AFL with the exception of the rule changes involving runners, who will continue to operate as per previous WRFL seasons (without restrictions during play).

These rule changes will be implemented across all WRFL competitions in season 2019, including competitions with modified rules (U8, U9, U10 mixed and girls). Competitions with modified rules will override any of the new AFL rules.

Information regarding the rule changes has been communicated to all WRFL clubs and coaches have been invited to a pre-season information session scheduled for March where the changes will be presented.
