Global Law Trials

The new Global Law Trials went live on 1st August 2021. An in-depth look at the laws and the reasons behind them is available at the following here.

Please visit the link above and familiarise yourself with the new laws. We will be taking a good look at the trials and how we are going to manage them at the Development Day at the end of the month. 

If you would like to discuss any of the laws, old or new, ahead of the pre-season matches, please get in touch with Fish, Mike Mulroy, Ian Farrell or Godfrey Bancroft and we will happily go through them with you. 

Head Contact Protocol

NLDRURS were pleased to welcome professional RFU referee Karl Dickson to talk to the society about the new head contact protocol.

To help referees return confidently to the field, the RFU have produced a number of short topical video’s supported by our Professional Referee colleagues, entitled Connected Match Officials. For further watching about the new Head Contact Protocol, here is a link to Wayne Barnes talking through the  Connected Match Officials – Head Contact Process.
