    I would say that the 2018 Law Book (as in so many cases) settles an issue that has previously caused much discussion here on RR

    Q : when, exactly, is the moment when the receiver can join the line (not swapping places, but just joining) ?
    A: from now on .. he can't do that.

    It always was an uncomfortable idea. IMO it's a very sensible change, making lineouts a bit simpler.

    I would be interested to see if it still occurs in 7s, as that is where the tactic was used more often than not - 2x lineout players limited opposition's opportunities to lift. Throwing-in side's Receiver moved v sharpish (once ball thrown of course) and was lifted.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Or .. reflecting on it today ...did the 2018 authors consider it so blindingly obvious that the receiver can join the line that the Law allowing him to do so was unnecessary ?

    After all .. we know that the Authors are not much concerned with matching numbers

    In the 2017 19.8(i):

    Where the receiver must stand. If a team uses a receiver , then that player , must be
    positioned at least 2m back from team mates in the lineout , and between the 5m and 15m
    lines , until the lineout begins.
    Once the lineout has commenced , the receiver may move into the lineout and may perform
    all actions available to players in the lineout and is liable to related sanctions.


    Before 2018 this part was interpreted to mean that:

    a.The receiver can't join until the ball is thrown and b. he may join after.

    With this section removed in 2018 are we to assume that:

    a. The receiver can join prior to the throw or b. he is not allowed to join at all?

    Or: It's "blindingly obvious" that this part was redundant and to keep whistling as you did in 2017. For me the receiver exchanging places with a lineout player is a working solution for 15's and is supported in both 2017 & 2018. I am wondering if the 7s community is thinking differently.

    I guess the principle is:
    Where the 2018 Law Book is clear, apply it
    Where the 2018 Law Book is ambiguous, choose the interpretation that aligns with 2017

    I have updated the table to include 2017/19.18(i) / 2018/18.16 - can the receiver join the line

    help and advice appreciated
    This post from the Questions thread led me to a curiosity in the 2018 law book.

    2017
    21.5 (c) If the kicker indicates to the referee the intent to kick at goal, the opposing team must stand still with their hands by their sides from the time the kicker starts to approach to kick until the ball is kicked
    There is an accompanying illustration.

    That same wording is now under Scoring 8.22 whereas the picture is still under 20 Penalty and Free Kick

    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Table updated
    - to include the question of whether a player, offside under the 10m Law, can be put onside by a team mate
    - removed a lot of the discussion about the definition of a chargedown and impact on the 10m Law (on reflection - too subtle to worry much about, I think)
    - inclusion of the GLTs / May 2018 changes noted
    - introduction changed
    - generally tidied up

    As always : if you spot any more please let me know.


    Sigh, going back through the table and re-reading I am struck by what an opportunity missed this has been for rugbyrefs.com

    When, very early on, we started to spot these unexpected differences it was clear what needed to be done

    - deliberate changes and settled ambiguities needed to be highlighted and communicated to the rugby community so that players, refs, societies, unions everywhere could be aware of them and put them into practice, changing previous understanding where necessary

    - at the same time the accidental changes needed to be highlighted and communicated quickly to WR, so that they could be corrected as soon as possible

    - and of course by solving the above, we'd be able to tell the difference


    RugbyRefs.Com, with our collective vast experience, our community of law geeks used to scrutinising subtle changes, but also our wise heads to keep us grounded in reality, our global network of rugby contacts, and our freedom from rugby's political structures was ideally positioned to take on that task and do something useful. We could have achieved something that boosted the RR.COM brand.

    Instead we got bogged down in the notion that even looking for differences was somehow wrong or rebellious and senior figures refused to participate or were even hostile, sitting in the corner bellowing 'there are no changes' It has not been our finest hour.

    You are missing the point completely.

    What some of us are saying is this. Read the 2018 book from the stand point that its intention was to clarify and not change and you will be closer to refereeing according to World Rugby's desires / intentions than going on a crusade to prove there are wholesale "through the back door" changes on almost every page.

    Where ambiguities / apparent changes appear, we do need to flag them up for WR's consideration to facilitatea further re-wording in due course. Putting people's backs up is not likely to improve your chances and getting the re-wording and clarifications we seek / need.

    The "Cardiff Society of Welsh Rugby Union Referees" (CSWRUR) has a, recently reformed sub group that is charged with law issues. I am the Society's Vice hair and Sub Group's Chair and I have presented a paper to the sub group, using your document as a discussion facilitator. It is my hope that from this group we will prepare a request that will ulitmately arrive at WR's door for its consideration.
