    So what does this mean ?

    Delaying the movement of the ruck defensive line: reduce defensive line speed

    Does it mean enforcing existing Law .. or something new ?

    I think it depends on the type of tackle most likely to cause concussions. I suspect that the most problems arise in open play where players are 1 on 1 at high speeds, so this may make it worse (or at least not help).

    I'm also wary of the main aim of World Rugby being law change "for the sole purpose of injury prevention". Changing rugby into chess would reduce injury, but it wouldn't be rugby any more. Reducing concussion, I'm fine with.

    Did we not trial lowering the tackle height last year. This saw an increase of concussion to the tackler, so the trial was ended early. What's going to be the difference now? How are we going to safe guard the tackler and the tackled player?

    I don't know cr, but surely this will just make the top defences move up even faster and uncontrolled to make up for having to wait. I can't think of anything that would benefit the game. If you hold the defensive line till either the 9 runs or kicks or makes the pass to the 10 then we as refs will have a hard job deciding when the defensive line can come up.

    Why don't we enforce a clear gap / daylight between the defensive line and the offside line. It will have a similar effect to delaying their movement and might be easier to see infringements.

    Offside line at 1m rather than back foot body part

    Or 10, after every tackle?

    1m is much harder to judge than in front/behind. Gameplay will evolve, and there will be more controversies rather than fewer. Perhaps they should start by enforcing the current offside laws (and maybe put the C&O onus on being behind, instead of not-in-front) and see how well that works.

    This one sounds like hard work for the referee

    The introduction of an infringement (penalty and free-kick) limit for teams. Once a team has reached the limit, a mandatory yellow card is given to the last offending player as a team sanction. RATIONALE: To encourage teams to offend less. RECOMMENDATION: To approve for closed trials at NRC in Australia.
    I think that would mean
    .. you have to get your scorecard out after every PK or FK in order to keep count
    .. so no more quick taps ?
    .. disputes about how many PK there have been

    If you play adv from a pK offence and subsequently adv is gained does that still count as ?
    If you play adv and they commit a second offence does that count as two ?
    .. when the team are on a YC , and both teams know , it puts a lot of pressure on the ref about to award the next one
