Rule changes for 2013 confirmed

Recommended Posts

I don't like the advantage rule at all!

Nor do I.

If I interpret this correctly (please tell me if I have it wrong) so long as the non-offending team retain possession of the knocked-on ball then play will continue. Previously it was interpreted that the team must actually gain some advantage by making yardage past the point of the offence; this now appears to have disappeared. If that is the case then expect a stream of "accidental" knock-ons which place the defending team under further pressure.

Is this correct?

I thought they were bringing a new rule in for the deliberate kicking of the ball dead? a restart from where kicked.

Yes, it's disappointing that it isn't also being introduced as I thought that could be a really positive development.
