  • All players have a ‘Body Type’ which provides bonuses / penalties for certain training. 
  • All players have a randomly determined height between 170 – 210cm.  Height will provide bonuses / penalties for certain training.  Height will also factor in the Ruck Contest to determine which player wins the Hitout.
  • All players will retire once they reach 35 years of age. 
  • All players drafted during the ‘Rookie Draft’ each season will either be 18 or 19 years old.
  • All players 'Physical Condition' will decrease by 2% each league match they play.
  • Any player who is rested for 1 league match will regain 10% 'Physical Condition'.
  • ‘Physical Condition’ acts as a multiplier against a players’ total skill rating.  Example:  Player 1 has a total skill rating of 100 but his ‘Physical Condition’ is 90% (played 5 games without rest).  During his game that week if played, Player 1 will have all skills reduced to 90% of their listed level.
  • Chance of injury increases the worse a players ‘Physical Condition’ gets.
  • ‘NOTE:  Injury will never occur in-game.  It will always occur post game and the number of games sidelined will be nominated.
