    Proposed new rules to be tried out.

    According to RTÉ a number of Law changes will or might be trialled.

    50-22 If a team kicks from its own half "indirectly" into touch within the opponent's 22, they will get the throw in at the lineout.
    RTÉ also mention kicking from within one's own 22 into the opponent's half but it's not clear whether this kick must be "indirect" as well.
    This has been recommended for a trial.

    Reducing the number of Subs. This is supposed to make players tired and, therefore open up more spaces.
    More research has been recommended. ( In the writer's opinion, the tireder a player is, the greater the likelyhood of injury. )

    If you're off your feet at a ruck, you must move away from the ball ASAP.
    More research.

    The defenders at a ruck can't move 'till the first receiver has the ball or 'till the Scrummie doesn't pass.
    Not approved.

    Lower the tackle height to the waist.
    To be trialled.

    Review a Yellow Card to see if it should have been red.
    To be trialled.

    Bring in a limit to Pens and Free kicks which, once reached results in a yellow for the last offender.
    To be trialled in the Aussie NRC.

    Award a Drop out from the Goal line when an attacking player is held up over the line.
    To be trialled in the NRC.

    High Tackle Technique warning as per the U20s WC to be further trialled.

    Some potential changes in tackle laws will be trialled in France at domestic level.

    Sounds nuts!

      No tackles above the waistline??

        The "logic", if that's the right word, is to encourage/force teams to take players out of their defensive line so as to cover each touch-line and open up more space for the attacking team.

          From RTÉ:
          • Reducing the tackle height to the waist. Rationale: Forcing players to tackle lower may reduce the risk of head injuries to both the tackler and tackled player. Recommendation: To approve for closed trials.

            Makes a kicking 10 quite an asset, it will b interesting to see how that works.

            wish they’d done something about the missile like diving over the ruck or when clearing out (eg sarries) and blatant infringement of laws on offside atruck and crooked put ins to scrum and line out. To me it’s lack of strict enforcement of the laws we have is the problem- not that we need new laws.

              Can't see how they'd enforce that. Most players these days bend down/forward (head first) when going into contact, especially in the tight.

                Watching the súper rugby semi finals... There are some real rib breakers on show... For ruck clearing...

                  "Another suggestion that will be presented to World Rugby’s Law Review Group [LRG] is that yellow cards would be followed by in-game reviews by the citing commissioner, who would have the possibility of upgrading the sanction to a red card within the 10-minute sin-bin window.

                  The intention would be to ensure a greater number of correct red cards for foul play and fewer incidences of teams losing the in-game benefit they may be missing out on when referees erroneously show yellow cards to the opposition instead of reds."

                    "Reducing the number of players in the defensive frontline was discussed at the Symposium, leading to the suggestion of a ’50/22′ law for kicking.

                    This would be a simple tweak whereby a kick from within your own half [your own 50-metre area] that bounces in the field of play before crossing the touchline in the opposition 22 would result in the kicking team getting the throw into the lineout.


                    An adaptation of the 40/20 kick in rugby league, the hope would be that the threat of these kicks would see defences keep more players in the backfield in order to prevent the kicking team securing an advantageous attacking lineout in the 22.

                    That, in turn, could produce more space in the defensive frontline and mean fewer tackle events.

                    The 50/22 law amendment suggestion was popular at the Symposium and it would be no surprise to see it brought forward to the trial phase in the next cycle after this year’s World Cup."

                    ROG would have loved this.

                      Could work well for us. Carbery, JJ and Tyler all have a tactical boot and a running threat of different degrees, and our line out is generally solid.

                        Agreed Balla, I was thinking the same. Good for Owen Farrell too, mind you...

                          Merge into laws thread... 50-22 law will be interesting to see. Works well in league

                            I like the idea of the 50:22, it could really favour 12’s who can kick like scannell.

                            I would like to see them evolve the penalty try conversion rule to directly awarding 7 points for any team that scores under the posts in play and do away with stupid unmissable conversions.

                              This one sounds interesting. Would require close in pick and gos to be more controlled and would reduce the scourge of 5 minutes of game time being lost to 5m scrum resets.
