Head of competition management Rob Auld and competition evolution manager Brad Scott have been added as AFL representatives.

"Stephen is an outstanding leader of his club and a genuine role model of our game, and we look forward to his contribution as a member of the competition committee," AFL head of football Steve Hocking said.
