Combined Country meeting
* The Combined Country Association is no longer responsible for the running of the reserve grade competition. This will now be run by Southland Cricket in conjunction with the senior comp. Reserve grade captains and club representatives will still have input with playing conditions etc.
* There is no longer a limit on how many games need to be played in order for points to be awarded for a round. If you play and win you get full points. Shared points if the game is called off due to weather.
* If both captains agree, the game venues can be changed due to poor weather conditions at the original venue. There is no requisite for the original home team to travel if it does not suit - there will be no default, the points will be split.
* A player must have played AT LEAST 4 reserve grade games for a team in order to be eligible for playoffs/finals etc unless they are still in school. There is NO maximum limit on how many senior grade games can be played. Captains discretion is available if a team will be left short of players.
