Line out
IRB clarification for teams choosing not to engage at the lineout
 
if the defenders in the line out choose to not engage the line out drive by "leaving the line out as a group", PK to attacking team;
if the defenders in the line out choose to not engage the line out drive by simply opening up a gap & "creating space" & not leaving the line out, the following process would be followed:
- attackers would need to keep the ball with the front player, if they were to drive down-field (therefore play on, general play - defenders could either engage to form a maul, or tackle the ball carrier only);
- if they had immediately passed it back to the player at the rear of the "group", the referee would tell them to "use it" which they must do immediately...
- if they drove forward with the ball at the back (did not release the ball), the referee would award a scrum for "accidental offside" rather than PK for obstruction.
MEMORANDUM

Nope. Straight from HQ twickers. If I wasn't in my iPhone I would post the actual email.

It's as stupid as a possum with a mow hawk mate

So is the ARU the only union to include videos with the memo to illustrate how to implement the new directives?

The ARU generally have more footage available of people cheating.

I believe the 4 DVD boxed set of Al Baxter's Scrummage Collapses is due out this Christmas.

:biggrin:

I got the e-mail via the usual cascade about 2 weeks ago - no videos just (poorly written) text.
