    Don't ask me where I found this, but Didn't 7's successfully do this this with #4 ? - if so, the ideology works for me even if the time allowance could be extended.

    Law Trials: Additional Sevens Changes, wef 1/12/2016


    1] * Finals should last no longer than seven minutes each half (rationale is player welfare – the evidence shows that a disproportionate number of injuries take place in the second half of finals. Injuries per minute are higher in the second half of finals as opposed to the first half and throughout normal matches of seven minutes each way.)


    2] * Referee Video Referral (RVR) to be taken out of the on-field referee's hands with the ultimate decision being taken by the TMO (rationale: it is often difficult to see the screen and make a call. The RVR protocol remains unchanged. The TMO will be one of the pool of tournament referees)


    3] * The restart kick must be taken within 30 seconds of a penalty kick or dropped goal being attempted where the kick is successful or goes dead.


    4] * Teams must form a line-out within 15 seconds from the time the referee indicates the place where the throw-in will take place.


    5] * Teams must be ready to form a scrum within 15 seconds from the time the referee indicates the mark of the scrum.

    6] * A penalty or free-kick must be taken within 30 seconds of being awarded.

    You should change that to this YOU don't think are broken. You have very strong opinions Ian, and nothing wrong with that but your opinion is not always the same as everyone elses, or dare I say it, always right. I think the idea about wording a QTI to be tsken without delay is not a bad one. It looks very weird when a 'QTI' is taken say 30-45 seconds after the ball went into touch and players are approaching (but have not yet arrived) at the LOT.

    Well, I think its normal.

    19.2 QUICK THROW-IN
    (a) A player may take a quick throw-in without waiting for a lineout to form.


    There is absolutely NO merit whatsoever in monkeying with the quick throw in law just because some people have got a burr up their arse about clever and innovative thinking. Defenses can fix this simply by staying awake; its called "situational awareness" They need to be aware of the possibility of a quick throw-in right up until the point that line-out forms. Why on earth would we want to change the laws to give unconscious defenders a free pass?

    If these people had their way, there would be no room for creativity. We'd end up with staid, boring game where everything has to be done to a preset pattern. I applaud those players who think creatively and outside the box, and who can fool the opposition (so long as they do not infringe the Laws) into ignoring what they are doing and then getting the drop on them. The more players we have like that, the better it is for the game.

    If you want boring, staid and playing to a pattern, go play noughts and crosses.

    Agreed. I would even argue for a change that states "A quick throw in is allowed only before the defending team approaches the lineout/line of touch".

    Oh, genius!!. That's even more confusing.

    You will have different cutoff times depending on which half the game is being played in!

    If we're going to change the laws, it needs to be to improve something or fix a problem.

    This suggested change to the QTI does neither, and as referenced earlier, I think makes it worse. What does "without delay mean"?

    if the thrower is on the LoT, opposing forwards all lined up nicely, backs in regular positions, throwing forwards in a little gaggle discussing the move and as they approach LoT the thrower throws to his #10 ... I wouldn't allow that eventhough QTI is still technically an option.

    I wouldn't allow the gaggle in the first place!

    why on earth not? It's legal and part of their clever & innovative thinking.

    Its not legal

    19.8 (d) When the ball is in touch , every player who approaches the line of touch is presumed to do
    so to form a lineout. Players who approach the line of touch must do so without delay.1
    Players of either team must not leave the lineout once they have taken up a position in the
    lineout until the lineout has ended
    .2
    Sanction: Free Kick on the 15-metre lineLaw


    1. If they have stopped to have their gaggle before reaching the LoT, they have delayed forming a lineout (an infringement under the above Law). They haven't formed a lineout, so the option to take a QTi is still on. Why should the throwing team not be allowed to get on with the game (by taking a QTi) when the non-throwing team is intentially delaying the game by delaying the formation of a line-out.

    2. If they have reached the LoT and thereby stopped the QTi from taking place, and then retreated away for their gaggle, they have left the LoT (an infringement under the above Law)

    If its good enough for my under 15s to discuss line-out calls and tactics while they are walking to the LoT without stopping its good enough for adults and elite players.
