The AFL will next year trial a rule requiring teams to reset in zones at every boundary throw-in and kick-in as well as every centre bounce in the new second-tier competition.
The radical move will require three pairs of players to be in each zone at boundary throw-ins and kick-ins.
The existing rule, which requires teams to break into six pairs of players in each zone for centre bounces, will remain.
The move is a significant next step in the push to declutter the game.
