    Whilst the conclusion is welcomed, am I reading this right? World Rugby fomed a working group of 12 members and the conclusion was.... apply the laws of the game. I imagine they were up all night with that one!

    It was an interesting conclusion, given that in the past the first option has been to tinker with the Laws.

    Perhaps there is some realisation that the vast majority of the players are refereed (by and large) to the LotG as they stand and not to some pact drawn up between Sky/Coaches/Other TV Channel etc

    Scrums I grant you, but I have seen several sanctioned at lineouts at top levels - perhaps not as strictly as I expect at grass roots, but not a rara avis either.

    Not convinced that the reward of the jackle is clear - I though the reward was if he beat the clearout and kept hold of the ball?

    I don't understand this:

    First arriving player – the jackler – will be rewarded, and the concept of the jackler “surviving the clear out” by opposition players will be removed. The jackler must be in a strong position to try and lift, with hands on the ball.


    Doesn't the red bit mean the same as the blue bit?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I agree. It isn't well explained. Does it mean that if the jackler doesn't have the ball up and clearly in possession before the arriving players get there he gets pinged for handling in a ruck?
