      Not sure this trial is that necessary
      also does it need a new thread. surely just the laws thread would do for this topic?

        I think it's a good move. Should reduce the number of "riding up" tackles that are basically headbutts.

        It will be interesting to see the effect it has on tackling technique. Tacklers will have to pick their spot.

        "Little by little, we have been brought into the present condition in which we are able neither to tolerate the evils from which we suffer, nor the remedies we need to cure them." - Livy


        "I think that progress has been made by two flames that have always been burning in the human heart. The flame of anger against injustice and the flame of hope that you can build a better world" - Tony Benn

          I'm glad to see it, but I wonder how it'll be policed when someone ducks into a tackle.
          Tis but a scratch.
