    [Law] Re: England . Law and Regulation update

    Re: Law Change - 3.3

    Pragmatically, I'm going to apply this to "possible" or "suspected" head injuries as well. In the community game, that's the only sensible approach to take. There might be bigger implications in...

    I think both - not sure it makes sense otherwise.



    This is a really good point, and one I had overlooked. Now Iím looking forward to it even less :-(

    IIRC, that was exactly what they found in the below-the-armpits trial during last season's Championship, hence it being terminated early.

    We're drifting off topic (how unusual!) here, but I would advise a better way of managing those questions is simply to tell the player how long you have left on your watch. It's then up to them to...

    Full agreement. And by analogy with the law governing the mark:

    Law 17:
    5. The player who claimed the mark takes the free-kick (in accordance with Law 20).
    6. If the player is unable to take the...

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    Agree with Dickie. This used to be much more clearly spelled out in the 2017 edition of the Laws, but now you have to cobble together a couple of bits of definitions (my emphasis throughout):

    I find your "natural view of the laws" curiously inconsistent. On the one hand:
