Can the rules not just be changed only by the RLIF?

That would be the ideal, but no.

It's just crazy that our game doesn't have a world wide governing body with sole decision making authority on law changes.

I thought the RLIF did make the rulings on the international rules that are to be used, hence not having 2 refs just because the NRL does.

That's probably correct but that only compounds the problem giving us three different versions of the laws. The RLIF should have sole authority. The NRF nor the RFL should be able to change laws without the RLIF say so.

Yep, I'm with you. Surely there should be a neutral rules committee and if they want to test things then this should be ratified to be tested in the NRL and then reviewed after a period of time.

This has happened in Football and RU.

More chance of me winning the Euromillions I think than the various organisation bodies relinquishing power to a proper RLIF.

Most sports (including soccer and RU) have variations to their laws within their domestic competitions. Overall rule control by global governing bodies only applies to international competition.

Not soccer. The Laws of the Game are fixed by the International Football Association Board (one repesentative each from the FA, SFA, FAW and IFA, and four representatives from FIFA, amendements needing a three quarter majority). Any law changes are binding on member associations and confederations.

What the IFAB does allow is for proposed law changes to be trialled by member associations.

The international federation used to have control of the rules, worldwide, and all changes had to go through the International body, but at some point this changed.

I don't have any problem with the rules the NRL are bringing in, apart from the fact that some seem a little pedantic and change for change sake, its just the way they go about it that is so frustrating.

 

If they had of gone through the International board, all would have probably been adopted anyway, such is the sway the NRL has with the International set up. They are just too up themselves to consider doing such a thing, clearly.

Donkeys years ago I seem to remember variations in the laws used in the northern and southern hemispheres, such that both sides had to negotiate which laws were going to be used on tours.

So please explain the use of goal-line technology in the Premier league and its rejection by EUFA?

Okay. At its AGM in Edinburgh, on 2 March 2013, International Football Association Board (IFAB) amended Law 10 - The Mthod Of Scoring - to allow for the use of Goal Line Technology. It also made related decisions and included these in Laws 1 (The Field Of Play), 2 (The Ball) and 5 (The Referee).

These amendments do not make use of GLT compulsory - you're not likely to see your local amateur league use it any time soon - but it did allow competitions held under the auspices of FIFA's member associations and confederations to use it. To do so, the competition rules must specify its use: the English Premier League competition rules obviously allow its use, UEFA's do not as yet. In this respect it is no different from Assistant Referees. The UEFA Champions League will use them, as will the EPL, but many local amateur leagues will not.

What has not happened here is the the FA have not unilaterally the laws of association football used under its jurisdiction. To have done so would have seen it, and all football played in England, expelled from world football. Neither has FIFA allowed the game to be played fundamentally differently in different competitions. They haven't altered the way a goal is scored, merely the way a goal is detected, and they haven't altered the way a game is restarted.
