The three SANZAR partners can’t agree which ELVs to use in the Tri-Nations. Australia and South Africa are believed to be keen to use the Super 14 ELVs, but New Zealand are not.

The Daily Telegraph reports that with All Blacks coach Graham Henry having not coached under the rules, the New Zealand Rugby Union are keen to use only the International Rugby Board global rules – which don’t include the all-important “sanctions variation”.

O’Neill said the negotiations were “continuing” but he didn’t miss a snipe at the northern rugby nations at a sports luncheon yesterday.

Asked about the recent IRB vote on the ELVs O’Neill said: “The northern hemisphere basically don’t think there’s anything wrong with the game,” O’Neill said.

“We are not talking the same language. They are living in a fool’s paradise. Anyone who watched the last three games in the World Cup – the semis and the final – they were shocking games. Terrible games.”


  • My Initial thought was Play the S14 Laws, all the players are used to them, but this article raises a very good point.

    The only 3N coach who has coached these laws is Robbie Deans.

  • Interesting thoughts – feel sorry for the refs though – must all be confusing for them.
