Not open for further replies.

Quick Hands

David Wilson (68)
World Rugby have announced a series of law trials to take effect 1 August 2017 in the Northern Hemishere and 1 January 2018 in the Southern Hemisphere.

Some of the highlights:

scrum half may align his shoulder with the mid-line of the scrum, but must put the ball in straight (yeah right)

no signal from the referee to feed the ball (finally)

a player from the team putting the ball in must strike for the ball

tackler must now go through the gate

only 1 player needed to form a ruck

can't kick the ball forward from a ruck
