The AFL has announced another rule change to the Interchange cap that involve blood rules.

Earlier in the season, North Melbourne was forced to bring forward Drew Petrie from the ground in the game against Melbourne, in what was tight finish.

Petrie was replaced by Ben Brown towards the end of the quarter, which ended up being the final rotation that the Kangaroos were allowed, meaning one of their most important players in Petrie, could not come back on the ground.

The new rule allows players to come on and off the field with the blood rule, which will now not count in the official 90 cap rule.
