    Default MLR law trials

    I have reservations about the limit of two scrums per incident.

    My immediate thought.
    I would think lines drawn perpendicular from the posts will be required to help the ref and stop arguments.
    On the line = inside the posts? - or not?

    yup... my first thought was - ANOTHER line call.

    Now maybe a narriw call mistakenly made doesnt really affect the ability to complete the extra 2 points... but if the intention is to save time then we cant have fraffing about with TMOs/slow mos/reviews or whatever, and a conversion required call etc doesnt save the time needed.

    Likely not a biggy.

    That 2 sctums per incident thing is needing more flesh on the bone... so what happens after two collapses? Or the 2nd scrum ends in a FK/PK but now a side has lost a tactical option of scrum again.

    I like the between the posts change.

    I don't foresee any real issues with a ref making the call.

    The referee is the sole judge of fact. Doesn’t matter if the platters agree or not and want to argue. Make the call. It doesn’t need painted lines.

    given a kick in the frnt of the psts is "a given", and so is a kick 1m to the side of the posts. Why not make that a wider "box" ?

    I suspect the answer is coming up with a width that is meaninfgful in this regard and where then lines WOULD have to be provided AND line calls DO become pertinent.

    maybe if the idea is to speed up the time taken for conversions, they should be made drop kicks (CF the restart/kick off changes made several years ago) ?

    No one has a reservation with this MLR variation ?

    The offside line will be the feed line/channel of the scrum to allow for unimpeded access to the ball at the back of the scrum for the attacking team.

    for clarity, no doubt we are referring to the opposing SH. I'm good with it, allows team in possession good opportunity to clear ball. Long overdue.

    It is an Under 15 Regulation in England. Says it all really.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.
