Some teams are already trying to re arrange fixtures due to player shortage. Rule 13 states that games should only be changed due to green conditions,or funerals.Clubs must try to play a fixture even when short of players.We have rules in place for this ,with 2 players allowed to play twice, if more than 2 short you forfeit a game. Clubs are not obliged to change a date, and can claim average points at the end of the season, with the offenders having no points.
