    Default 7's myths.

    Did a 7's tournament in the week.
    A few myths popped up.

    You are only allowed 2 in the lineout. No more, no less.
    SH can run in to be lifted before the ball is thrown.
    The try scorer must kick the goal.

    One question that did have me thinking. How long is a blood bin in 7's?
    I said 15 minutes on the basis that there is no variation listed. But that's longer than the game!

    It's not about how long of the game it is, it's about how long it takes to stop the blood, if you can't stop it in 15 mins it's probably pretty major injury.

    You're missing the point.
    They are only allowed 3 subs. With the exception that a substituted player can come back on for a blood bin.
    If the blood bin is longer than the game, then the slightest hint of blood could be called as a blood bin instead of a sub, effectively giving them 4 or more subs.

    TBF Phil some tournament regs stipulate that the try scorer must take the kick.

    Another sevens myth is that you don't need to have the "opponent to the thrower" in his 5m x 5m tramlines position.

    Nonetheless Phil, I think you were right the first time.

    There is no separate variation in the Sevens laws for blood replacement, 3.12 Exception 1 is the same for both Sevens and Fifteens.

    Possibly, there might be individual tournament regs for Blood Reps, but I doubt it. Tournament regs don't usually mess with stuff that is related to player safety.

    No law requirement - not in Sevens, 10s or full 15s.
