    Organisers of the Rugby World Cup, taking place between September and October 2015 in England, have added an innovation to help novice fans learn the complex rules of the game. During the matches, fans will have access to simplified, in-game commentary with detailed explanations of the rules related to what is currently happening in each match.

    This was revealed when tournament organisers unveiled some of their plans for Britain's greatest global sporting event since the London 2012 Olympic Games. A report in the Daily Telegraph on April 29th had proposed some of the terms and rules that will be in the “Idiot’s guide to rugby union”. But now more details have been given about the organiser's mode of enlightening new fans about rugby.

    Laws of Rugby Union - 1922

    Thread Starter: colesy

    A bit of an odd query but worth a try. My club has its centenary year in 2022 and we’ve started planning a series of events to mark the occasion. I’ve been asked to try to track down the laws of the game as they were in 1922. Other than contacting the RFU, any suggestions?

    Hand Off or Fend to the face/head/neck

    Thread Starter: Last_20
