How many interchanges per side during a game?

There will be a total of 10 in regular time (with two interchanges available in the case of golden point)

Are there any other rules different from the NRL?

Why is this competition being called the 2021 competition when it's being played in 2022?

The delay of the competition due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 means the upcoming season will still be referred to as the 2021 NRLW season, with a second competition to be scheduled later in the year prior to the World Cup.
