Absentee Players in a Pennant Side

Absentee Players in a Pennant Side

In last year’s Pennant competition the absentee player rule was incorrectly applied at least twice. Again this year there may be times when a side turns up to play with only three (3) players in a team.

Please be aware that Domestic Regulations apply (not Crystal Mark 4th Edition) and state that play is to continue with three (3) players with each player playing two (2) bowls. They play without a Second and the Second in the opposing team plays his bowls consecutively (DR 2.6.1).

Would you please ensure Selectors, Side Managers and Umpires are aware of the correct rule to apply.
