FOOTBALL AGE-LIMIT. W.A.N.F.L DISCUSSION. Open Competition Sought. At the annual meeting of the West Australian National Football League last night Mr P. J. Fogarty, a delegate of the Perth club, moved to rescind a resolution which the league adopted last year that the age limit for the 1945 season be under '25 at December 31 next, and that the 1945 competition be an open one. Mr Fogarty said that he had ob tained expressions of opinion on the age-limit question from many sup 'orters of the game. Not less than 95 per cent of those with whom he had discussed the subject were op posed to the 25 age-limit and said jthey could not see what goods it 'would achieve. They wholeheart edly wanted to see an open-age competition restored. As several of the clubs were repre sented last night by proxy dele gates and the East Premantle club only had one representative it was decided to adjourn consideration of the motion to the next meeting of the WANFL, which will be held on March 21.
