This week, the ELVs came closer to becoming Ls.

The IRB rugby committee has ratified which laws it thinks should come into force and which shouldn’t. It is now up to the IRB council to confirm these on 13 May. It is likely they will become law for the start of the 2009 Northern Hemisphere season.

What’s in:
All the lineout laws EXCEPT any numbers.
5m at the scrum and the scrum half offside line.
Quick throw ins going backwards.
Passing into the 22m area invalidating the kicking compensation out of the 22m.
Corner flags not being part of touch.

What’s not in:
Pulling down the maul
Sanctions for rucks and mauls (that is free kicks for certain infringements)

What might be coming in:
Rolling subs in the community game
U19 scrum laws in the community game (that is the wheel and pushing distance laws)

Penn State Rolling Maul vs. Standford @ 2007 Nationals
