    great summary, but this..

    A defending player in the 22 meter area who catches or picks up a ball that has not reached the 22 meter-line has
    carried the ball into the 22 meter area. It does not apply to make a successful mark.
    does it mean that I can stand inside the 22m, and catch the ball that hasn't crossed the plane I can still call for the mark, even though under the new Law I have taken it back in

    I read that to mean NO.

    Because you are in the 22 and the ball isn't.

    ISTR the "extendable" Mark (eg jump from 22 to catch the ball = OK) was done to suppress endless/hopeful kicking?

    I believe it relates to whether you are deemed to have taken it back in or not.

    A mark is still a mark.

    While the ruling relates to touch, they then had extricate themselves and clarify then that their intent was to ensure that a defender couldn't "force" a ball dead or in goal or back into the 22 without disadvantaging himself in the process.

    it mean that taking a successful mark with one foot in 22 and ball outside 22 is the one exception to defender carrying ball back over 22. The only practical purpose of this is that a kick to touch from the resulting FK has gain of ground.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Question More new Laws?

    20 July 2017, 14:55

    World Rugby introduce six law changes

    Implemented from 1 August in northern hemisphere

    Relate to scrum, tackle and ruck areas*

    The World Rugby Executive Committee has approved the addition of six law amendments to the programme of global law trials.

    The amendments, which have been tried in specific international competitions this year, relate to the scrum (Law 20) and tackle/ruck (Laws 15 and 16), and are aimed at making the game simpler to play and referee, as well as further protecting player welfare.

    The six law amendments will debut in full from 1 August 2017 in the northern hemisphere, and from 1 January 2018 in the southern hemisphere, and are as follows...

    Throwing the ball into the scrum

    Law 20.5 & 20.5 (d) 5
    No signal from referee. The scrum-half must throw the ball in straight, but is allowed to align their shoulder on the middle line of the scrum, therefore allowing them to stand a shoulder width towards their own side of the middle line.
    Rationale: To promote scrum stability, a fair contest for possession while also giving the advantage to the team throwing in.

    Handling in the scrum – exception
    Law 20.9 (b)
    The number eight shall be allowed to pick the ball from the feet of the second-rows.
    Rationale: To promote continuity.

    Striking after the throw-in
    Law 20
    Once the ball touches the ground in the tunnel, any front-row player may use either foot to try to win possession of the ball. One player from the team who put the ball in must strike for the ball.
    Rationale: To promote a fair contest for possession.
    Sanction: Free-kick

    Law 15.4 (c)
    The tackler must get up before playing the ball and then can only play from their own side of the tackle “gate”.
    Rationale: To make the tackle/ruck simpler for players and referees and more consistent with the rest of that law.

    Ruck
    Law 16
    A ruck commences when at least one player is on their feet and over the ball which is on the ground (tackled player, tackler). At this point the offside lines are created. Players on their feet may use their hands to pick up the ball as long as this is immediate. As soon as an opposition player arrives, no hands can be used.
    Rationale: To make the ruck simpler for players and referees.

    Other ruck offences
    Law 16.4
    A player must not kick the ball out of a ruck. The player can only hook it in a backwards motion.
    Rationale: To promote player welfare and to make it consistent with scrum law.
    Sanction: Penalty

    *The November 2017 Tests will operate under the full global law trials, while Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 will operate under the package of five global law trials that has been operational in the southern hemisphere since January and was operational during the June test window.

    Default Law changes

    This is in addition to those discussed in earlier thread.
    Ruck change the biggest change? No longer defined as 2 people on their feet over the ball? Thoughts?
