There was a couple of questions regarding the 'new net rule' at the registration night. The possibility of implementing the new rule was discussed and it was decided in order to prevent disagreements regarding the net rule, teams are to play according to the old rule. To actually have the new net rules enforced we would need to have carded officials reffing the game. If you touch the net call yourself on it and play stops.
