For the first time this season, all Senior Men’s teams will have the capacity to select and play a 23rd player this weekend.

The 23rd player rule will see players who turn 19 (in 2022) or younger, who are yet to play three or more senior (first 18) career games, feature as the 23rd player on their respective clubs senior team this weekend.

Ten players across TIV Division 1 and Division 2 have been picked as the 23rd player:

TIV Division 1 

Altona – Thomas Rowland

Caroline Springs – Simon Maiolo

Point Cook – Diesel Moloney

Sunshine – Xavier Kardachi

Werribee Districts – Lachlan Smith

Yarraville Seddon Eagles – Sebastian Isolani

Division 2 

Newport – Adam Kadour

Parkside – Grant Wilson

West Footscray – Matthew Bethune

Wyndhamvale – Noah Cooney

A player’s points allocation under the AFL Victoria Community Club Sustainability Program shall not count towards his team’s points total when that player is playing as a 23rd player.
