Being adopted by the Prem this coming season too, so we'll get a chance to see how they work in practice (but confusingly they won't apply in the Champ)

They do apply in the Championship according to this.

A hollow laugh about putting the ball in straight. How long did the directive on that last a couple of seasons back? Ten minutes? And this time it is supposed to be straight but closer to your own front row. I thought the law already specifically said any front row could strike for the ball.

Just read the actual change which seems to be that you have to strike for the ball. Hmm.

Cheers Peter. I'd only seen the Aviva Prem announcement which only referred to the Prem adopting the new laws.

All look good to me. Well done World Rugby. It's amazing what they've done since they had a Bristol boy in there!

Although ball has to be put in straight the Scrum Half is allowed to stand closer still to his hooker (in addition to being closer naturally due to the Scrum binding) so there should be little reason to put the ball in crooked
