There are changes to the way the NRL will be announcing Team Lists for 2017.
Clubs will announce their teams at 4pm, Tuesdays (instead of the usual 5pm), and each club will announce a 21-man squad consisting of 17 "Active" players, with four additional players named as "Reserves".
“Then 24 hours before each game kicks off a 19-man squad, only from players included in the initial 21-man squad, is selected with 17 "Active" players named in position and a maximum of two additional players named as "Reserves”,” said the NRL.
“Then one hour prior to kick-off a final team of 17 active players is confirmed, only selected from players included in the 19-man squad.
“Clubs wanting to bring in a player from outside the 21-man squad or the 19-man squad after they have been announced must apply for an exemption which will be evaluated by the NRL's Head of Football on a case-by-case basis.”
