More rule changes to make the officials look like clowns!!!I wish the RFL would stop changing the rules, but not set in stone as yet.With the world Cup approaching Not Good.


Kicking the ball dead from inside your own half:
Where the ball is kicked dead or touch in goal from inside the kickers own half, play will be restarted with a handover at the centre of the 40m line nearest to the non-kicking team’s goal line.

Charge Down:
Charging down the ball does not restart the tackle count. If the kicking team regains possession the tackle count will continue as before. The charge down will still not count as a knock on.

Attacking Team Option to Reduce Numbers in Scrum:
Where a team is awarded a scrum, the feeding team has the option of only putting 5 men in the scrum giving them 8 “backs” to attack with.

Hi RTG

Re the Scrum - If a team gets Head and Feed at the Scrum they can elect not to put the Loose Forward in, but only when they have head and feed - I think.

As always, I feel that rule changes will bring about even more decisions that the crowd will find hard to understand.

Hope you've had a good Christmas and have a Happy New Year.

Calm down, it's just RL tradition. If they didn't change the rules every year it just wouldn't be RL.

Given time, the rules will eventually revert to pre 1967 and everyone will be happy again.
