New rules for next season
« on: June 04, 2016, 07:48:41 AM »
I read in the media recently about new rules to be introduced next year.

One being that the ball carrier in a maul cannot make his way to the back of the maul, the ball must be transferred hand to hand

If a player needs to be replaced due to an injury as a result of foul play, this will no longer count towards the specified number af replacements

And any player found guilty of assimilation (diving!?!?) will face a sanction, presumably a yellow card.
I didn't realise that this was a major problem in rugby, in football yes, but not in rugby.

Do any other rules need changing?

What about a scrum back for a unsuccessful drop goal?
