Teams are reminded they need to check photo ID’s of opposing teams, as there have been some instances of ineligible players being played under other IDs, but this is difficult to prove after the game has finished. Those playing in a match should be put in the front of the book, to make identification easier. If needed, referees will oversee an identity check in the centre circle.
