Just to reminder of the laws that have been confirmed.

An interim meeting of the IRB’s ruling council on Tuesday 1st December 2010 agreed the current application of the rulings relating to Laws 15 (breakdown) and 16 (ruck) would be adopted into law with immediate effect:

– 15.4(c): The tackler who has gone to ground can, when back on their feet, play the ball from any direction

– 15.6(c): The tackler who stays on their feet has to release that player and then only play the ball coming from the direction of his own goalline.

– 16.3(f): Players must not use their feet in a rucking motion with players on the ground.
