In it’s ever increasing drive to spread the knowledge of the game, The IRB has launched a new interactive website.

The new site IRB Laws is an interactive website which teaches and tests the Laws of the game. The IRB are convinced that this tool will revolutionize Rugby Law education and i agree with them.

The key features are:
*- All compliant with 2009 Laws as approved by IRB Council on the 13th May.
*- Hundreds of video clips to illustrate the laws
*- Animations to support learning
*- Videos to illustrate all Referee and Assistant Referee signals
*- Self-test capability which covers:
*- All 22 laws
*- 7′s and Under 19 variations
*- Referee signals
*- Video tests
*- The test can be taken over multiple visits to the site
*- On completion users can download an awareness certificate
*- Access to the site is free to everyone
*- Registration is only required when users want to undertake the tests

I hope this tool will be of great use to all who visit it.

    interpretation is a myth that people have made up so they have an excuse to say they saw it different to the way the ref saw it. :wink:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 4) : Interpretation definitely comes into it at the breakdown.

    NH referees seem to allow the tackled player to hold onto the ball a lot longer. SH refs penalise immediately if the player doesn’t release.

    When it’s competitive at the breakdown a penalty can often be awarded either way. It’s up to the ref to interpret whether the tackled player is holding on or whether the “fetcher” is on his feet.
