    Default Next season's trials..

    What's coming round the corner ..

    https://www.world.rugby/news/432632?lang=en

    Anyone know what these two are ? Are they to enforce the existing Law ... Or a change ?

    Off feet at the ruck/players must leave the ball: creating greater contest at the ruck to speed up ball availability

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

    so the changes are to reduce injuries noting that most injuries occur to the tackler in a tackle. Which of these changes achieves that?

    I can see the off feet at ruck amendment being difficult to ref at grassroots level. 50:22 without ARs will be a nest of vipers too..

    I think the delay in allowing the defence to rush up at the breakdown and, to a lesser extent, the 50:22 changes will weaken defences at the top level and lead to more tries, and could lead to more space and a better spectacle in community rugby. I'm fairly open minded about it.

    The idea seens to be to create more space and to create gaps in the defence which *might* lead to more running moves and less collisions, making it less RL-like..

    but something like 50:22 will take defenders out of the line, meaning more 1 on 1 tackles which means more force on the tackler

    Dickie they are finding most injuries occur in the defensive line so creating gaps might work. It will also encourage the return to a game for all shapes and sizes as smaller, faster backs will be more able to exploit the space created.

    Didds this is for next year after the WC

    At community second team level I think there might be merit in trialling reduced team sizes too - maybe 12 a side with one centre and no flankers, just 8 in the back row. Better spectacle for the crowd, easier to get a team together and more space, so less time spent on the deck.

    IMO that's nonsensical. A 2 on 1 tackle would have to be safer to the tacklers, surely. Maybe ban tackling alltogether - then there'd be no tackler injuries.

    I've reffed many 10 per side tournaments and they work really well. Fast & open like 7s but structured like 15s
