New Law Book 2018 = New Red Card Form 2018

By Web Master

The new World Rugby Laws of the Game published on 1st Jan has meant the RFU has issued a new 2018 Red Card Form

“The 2018 Red Card Form must be used going forward with immediate effect” Dave Downham - YRS Fed Secretary

World Rugby published a "Simplified" law book on New Year's Day 2018, due to this rewrite of the existing laws, the subsections of the law book have been renumbered, a copy of the 2018 Law Book can be downloaded from the Word Rugby website or from our YRS Ref Docs Library YRS Laws Link

The renumbering of the Law sub-sections required the Red Card form to be updated to cater for the changes, and this is available from the Disciplinary section of our YRS Ref Docs Library YRS Disciplinary Library

For those of you who have committed the old disciplinary reference numbers to memory there is also a cheat sheet mapping old ref numbers to new, again to be found in the Disciplinary section of our YRS Ref Docs Library YRS Disciplinary Library , there is also a reference sheet mapping the Youth sanctions that are likely to be applied for disciplinary matters also in the same section of our document library.

There have been no law changes in the New Law Book, but the Global Law Trials 2017 are not highlighted in the new law book and they will need to be checked out from the WRB site Laws World Rugby look for the Global Law Trials 2017 tab
