    Posted: 01 June 2016 at 11:48am

A number of minor law amendments, approved and announced in September 2015, come into effect today (1 June) in the northern hemisphere having already been implemented in the southern hemisphere since the start of the year and will apply to the upcoming June internationals. 
 
The implementation of the package of law amendments by World Rugby Council follows detailed analysis and evaluation of union submissions by the specialist Law Review Group (LRG) which reports to the Rugby Committee. This evaluation process also featured specialist input from the Scrum Steering Group (SSG) and the Multi-Disciplinary Injury Prevention Group (MDIPG) over the past year and is the next phase of the law change process. 

The main amendments are:

  • The replacement of a player injured following foul play does not count as one of the allotted number of replacements available to that team
  • Advantage may be played following a scrum collapse if there is no risk to player safety
  • Play acting or “simulation” is specifically outlawed in the game in a move that formalises resistance to a practice that has been creeping into the game in recent years. Any player who dives or feigns injury in an effort to influence the match officials will be liable for sanction
  • Teams must be ready to form a scrum within 30 seconds of the scrum being awarded, unless the referee stops the clock for an injury or another stoppage
  • At a re-set scrum following a 90-degree wheel, the ball is thrown in by the team that previously threw it in rather than the team not in possession
  • The scrum-half of the team not in possession at a scrum may not move into the space between the flanker and number eight
  • When the ball has been at the number eight’s feet in a stationary scrum for 3-5 seconds, the referee will call “use it” and the attacking team must use the ball immediately

So if you're rolling around in agony, but the ref doesn't believe you, you get a yellow card?

Gut reaction is that there are  some quite useful proposals there but no doubt coaches are looking already for ways to use to their advantage!

I guarantee that a player will go down injured before every scrum from now on.

referees can' ref the current scrum laws such as binding on the arms, feeding the scrum (yellow card after 3?) and these occur in front of them or their assistant ref colleagues. Thus is pie in the sky meddling for meddlung sake,why not try and concentrate on the laws they already have an implement them regularly. Feining inkury is unsportsmanlike already covered by the laws, scrum set in 30 secs unachievable if you have had a period of say 10-12 phases as you'll have forwards getting up from at least two rucks and by the time the packs have gathered themselves from around the park the ref will have given up on the 30 sec rule assuming they even bother after the 1st league game
