    hi richard
    generally no issues .

    even with ball crossing line , or catcher jumping & knocking back etc .
    all my line outs have thank fully been clear cut .

    the only law i think was a pointless & a step back wards in terms of safety { especially at youth matches }
    is the not advising scrum half when to put ball in at scrums .

    in grass roots games there is only one change that I think made a significant and important impact : tackler has to get back on the right side of the tackle and come through the gate. That made a lot of difference, and IMO has improved the game (and, as a bonus, made it easier to ref)

    The other changes were interesting in theory - but in practice are bit meh.

    Additionally, not kicking the ball out of the ruck has made breakdowns a little less scrappy. It's the one I've blown for most.

    yes, I've blown for that three times I think, which is three times more than I would have expected !

    This was penalised in the internationals over the weekend. But ref called Ball's out, ex-rucker kicked it forward (not out of receiver's hand) and SH ref seemed to get a late nudge from the AR leading to penalty. Commentators correctly identified the relevant variation but made no mention of the preceding call of "out".

    I felt that 'out' or not there was still a hand on the ball and therefore kicking the ball was a penalty offence.
    Referee seemed a little timid when explaining his decision....which by the way was nothing to do with kicking the ball while a player had hands on as I refer to above.

    If that was in the Ire v RSA game then a combination of it being new to Kolisi and the Saffas AND the referee Ben O'Keeffe probably made for the lack of decisiveness.

    I tend to agree to he extent. Would love to hear World Rugby's rational behind this
