There have been numerous changes, some of which have been previously mentioned on the GTA Facebook & NSW Touch. Rules and changes included in 8th Edition Rules is available at following link:-
Each Team will reduce their on-field Team to 4 players, which ever team defended at the beginning of normal time, now restarts the drop off procedure at half way defending the same end as at end of play.
After expiration of a 2 minute period of extra time the team that is leading, wins the game. If neither team is winning, there is a pause, each team will remove another player (3 v 3) and the game commences where it let off.
The team to score next is declared the winner. In a mixed game a max of 2 males is allowed on the field. If a player is in the sin-bin or dismissed for the remainder of the game the non offending team will retain a numerical advantage; ie 4 v 3 to start the procedure.
Substitution during Drop-Off is permitted in accordance with normal Interchange Rules.
