    Yep.
    There was a reference to "Long Skins" in a by-laws template our zone Board is thinking of adopting and I have been checking the document. I couldn't find any reference to leggings in Reg 12 so was interested to find out where they are banned.
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    I therefore obey.
    That's interesting, 15.13.2 allows players to wear "base layers"
    Are leggings base layers? Shrug

    Ruling4-2006

    Law Reference4
    Date14 June 2006
    Request
    1. Players are wearing elastic ‘long sleeves’ with the mark of the manufacturer. The mark is approximately 80 sq cms. Does this garment resort under Law 4.1(a) which stipulates that ‘A player may wear supports made of elasticated or compressible materials which must be washable’?

    SARU have also asked:
    2. If this garment does not resort under law 4.1 (a) then Regulation 11.5.3 should apply.
    Ruling in Law by the Designated Members of the Rugby Committee
    1. The Designated Members have ruled that “the wearing of elastic ‘long sleeves’ is not a support as described in Law 4.1(a)”

    2. Regulation 11.5.3 does apply and that “no form of emblem, mark, name, or other form of commercial and/or promotional association may be displayed on any item worn, used, placed or carried onto the playing enclosure that is not referred to in Table 1.

    Shouldn┤t it be fairly simple? since the law clearly states that players must wear shorts and there is the exception of women being allowed cotton tights with an inside seam. logical reasoning should dictate no leggings, otherwise, what would the exception for women be for?
    adults: no tights/leggings
