WEST COAST vice-captain Beau Waters has been appointed the players' representative to the Laws of the Game Committee.
The 26-year-old, who has played 113 games since making his debut in 2004, has replaced Fremantle skipper Matthew Pavlich as the sole player on the committee.
Pavlich stepped down late last year after four years in the role due to increasing study and business commitments outside his playing role.
"The AFL greatly values the contributions of current players, and the wider AFLPA, to the important discussions around the Laws of the Game and is pleased that Beau will join the laws panel," the League's acting football operations manager, Gillon McLachlan, said on Wednesday.
Waters was a member of West Coast's 2006 premiership side and was named in the All Australian team for the first time in 2012.
He joins McLachlan (acting Chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Joel Bowden, Leigh Matthews, Luke Power, Rowan Sawers, Michael Sexton and Shane McCurry (secretary) on the laws committee.
