    yeah - our vets are off to a local X-rugby tournament this weekend I belive.

    At last - something aimed at grassroots, not driven by the elite end.

    Well done WR.

    More examples of WR inconsistencies:

    In the video ref says tackles below shoulders (eg same as normal) and on the text it says tackles below armpits...

    Seriously do they not check anything from an editorial type perspective before publiching it?

    This is interesting
    A hand-off must be a push action below the line of the arm pit.
    It won't be long before the regular game has a similar Law, specifying a push action and prohibiting hand offs above the shoulder. In fact I would not be surprised to find it there in September , and certainly before the RWC.

    2018/9.24 is there to prepare the ground

    We have the 'fend below the armpit/shoulder' in our youth laws.

    So, I ask one of our head refs if a would be tackler aiming to put his shoulder in the shorts could be fended by the ball carrier as the top of the shoulder would be the only place to fend.

    So, says he: "Yes, that would be OK" ???????

    Why not just take the head & neck out of the equation instead of unrealistic expectations.

    I only got a C in Biology, but since when is the shoulder below the armpit?!? No different to when a ball carrier dives low with head in front, defenders have to keep clear, is it nigh on impossible? Sometimes, yes, and certainly in U12 and above where you can fend I wouldn't be allowing that.
