Global Law Trials – Tell The RFU What You Think

By Web Master

The RFU is reviewing the effect of the World Rugby Global Law Trials and wants you to help shape the game of the future by responding to a survey

A number of Global Law Trials have been introduced by World Rugby since the beginning of the season and applied to all games at all levels in England since 1 August 2017.

These Global Law Trials are designed to support player welfare and make the Laws simpler to play and watch.

  • The 17 variations can be grouped around some key themes:
  • Time – how the game is ended after a penalty kick
  • Tackle/ruck – what the tackler must do and how a ruck can be formed
  • Advantage – where multiple infringements have occurred giving the non-offending team the choice of which they feel is the most advantageous to them
  • Touch, in goal and mark – putting the emphasis on where the ball is when it is played

Responding to the survey also gives you the chance to win one of five pairs of tickets for an England autumn international, simply click on the link and give them your thoughts.
