    but to get to the end
    - there's no specific IRB ruling on mens leggings, but in 2006 the IRB did define 'underwear'.
    the definition of underwear excludes leggings, as underwear must end above the knee.
    http://www.irblaws.com/index.php?dom...arification=30
    so if leggings are not underwear they can't be worn

    - female players can wear tights

    Meanwhile in England the RFU have issued a note to say that U18s and younger, boy and girls, can wear leggings when it's cold.

    I had a game 10 days ago in atrocious conditions. Truly surprised it wasn't called but when I got there the pitch looked in great nic. However, there was constant driving rain (it was falling horizontally) and obviously that was caused by a very strong wind.

    Didn't relent for 80 minutes but at the toss I said to both captains 'If your players wish to wear tights/leggings, today they can. I will be"

    :-)

    Wow - I managed a game at freezing point, with snow falling, and a wind, and everyone was wearing normal gear (no leggings). And yes - snow was falling so hard, that the home team had people out with blowers, making sure the key lines were visible for the entire game, as they were being covered fairly quickly.

    The Dutch must be wimps!! :-)
