World Rugby Update Head Contact Process

All members are requested to familiarise themselves with the updated head contact process recently released by World Rugby.

The Head Contact Process states that “Under 9.11, the referee is always entitled to issue a red or yellow card for anything deemed to be reckless or dangerous. However, this process is intended to aid consistency in the application of sanctions by providing guidance on how contact with the head should be approached by match officials”.

A version of the HCP, with the minor changes from the previous version annotated, can be found here.
