    Is a B Rookie in the same boat as regular rookie listed players - ie requires a LTI in order to be elevated?

    yep.

    Same as a regular rookie from a selection point of view.

    Only difference is the cat B guys sit outside the regular list of 40 senior + 4 rookie, so they are essentially additional list spots to encourage clubs to take punts on guys who wouldn't normally be listed.
