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:

  1. Time – how the game is ended after a penalty kick
  2. Tackle/ruck – what the tackler must do and how a ruck can be formed
  3. Advantage – where multiple infringements have occurred giving the non-offending team the choice of which they feel is the most advantageous to them
  4. Touch, in goal and mark – putting the emphasis on where the ball is when it is played

The RFU is reviewing their effect and wants you to help shape the game of the future by responding to a survey, which also gives you the chance to win one of five pairs of tickets for an England autumn international, please visit Global Trials Survey and give us your thoughts.
