How can this be allowed? Utterly ridiculous.

I thought this is an old ruling if a club has three players on international duty the match is postponed.

Why is it ridiculous? If we had three first teamers out because they were away on international duty then I wouldn't mind the game being postponed.

Yep, even we've had at least one match postponed for this reason in the past when Duff, McCann and one other were called up.

what if you have three injuries to key players then, can that be called off? What's the point in having a squad.

It's a bit different losing 3 players through injury and losing 3 because someone has taken them away for the weekend, especially at League 2 level where the lesser played members of squads aren't going to be anywhere near the same quality. I'd bet half of the teams in the Championship haven't even had 3 players go away this week but they're all having a weekend off, and that's the level that could probably cope with a few players missing.

I dont understand why they are given dispensation, its a squad game play other players.

Because international call ups are matters outside of the clubs' control. Suspensions and arguably injuries are not.

Good loophole. We could sign three 18 year old Gibraltar internationals to sit in the stands and then get games called off whenever we injuries to first teamers coincide with international games.
