    The Cambridge Laws Laboratory has been discontinued. Its results were never officially published.

    This was several years ago. Maybe after the 2003 RWC? I remember reading something about it, possibly about the time I started refereeing in 2006.

    Colleges rugby is very important in Cambridge and unique in that Division One is used to trial experimental laws for the RFU and IRB. The laws laboratory has run for twelve years and created a worldwide interest in its work. This scheme also attracts referees to come and referee in the Cambridge league and contribute to the friendship and fun which flourishes in our sporting environment.

    Here is a 2006 document of the trials - http://www.agard.rugby.hu/letolt/JVE...zasimuhely.pdf

    I couldn't find anything later, but also found comments is this article http://www.rugbyfootballhistory.com/laws.htm
    Laws Laboratories commenced in early 2012 (Stellenbosch and Cambridge)
    [...]
    In previous cycles, closed trials were operated by World Rugby at Cambridge and Stellenbosch but a desire to deliver extensive, meaningful, elite-level analysis and feedback, meant that unions were asked to nominate competitions for the trials. All trials will be filmed and independently analysed in preparation for World Rugby Council to consider which trials go forward for global trial in 2017.

    Cambridge tackle trials were discontinued due to the players insistence on wearing stupid protective gear.
