For 2013, all clubs (*except Gold Coast and GWS Giants) now operate under the following list sizes.
Primary List Size
Category A Rookies
Total Rookies (Maximum)
* Gold Coast Suns: Primary List 42; Rookie List 9
* GWS Giants: Primary List 44-50; Rookie List 9
So that all arguments re-list sizes I have extracted the above from the AFL web site the Suns and Giants now operate under the same rules as all the other AFL teams?
There's 36 on the list now including Smith. Plus 4 draft picks makes 40. Plus 4 Rookies makes 44. Yes we will be able to recruit 3 Category B rookies. If a player has played a sport other than Australian Rules in the last 3 years then they are eligible to be listed on the Category B rookies list like the international converts and basketball players but category B players cannot play unless a player on the main list is placed on the Long Term Injury list. Whereas 1 Category A rookies can be nominated after round 11.
