Position Updates

The flexibility of TheBench platform and the removal of position restrictions means that we are able to change player positions mid-season.

The rules that we have set aside are that if a player starts three games in a row in a position they are not named as eligible for on NRLCEO then we will change them AFTER their third game.  This allows us to be responsive fairly quickly to changes, but also removes the need to change players if they are only filling in for a position temporarily due to injuries in their squad. Please note that players starting from the bench do not qualify for position updates as it’s hard to determine their position for sure.

We will also update their positions if they play five games non-concurrently throughout the season in another position. This is to reward those flexible utility players that fill in other positions throughout the year.

With all that in your melon, we now list all of the players who have had positional changes throughout the year so far:
