Laws

A current version of the Laws of the Game can be downloaded/viewed at:

http://www.irb.com/lawregulations/laws/index.html


2009 law rulings

2009 Law Rulings

Law Ruling 4 – May 11, 2009

Defined player rights at the Tackle/Ruck transition. The ruling

stated that a player onside and on their feet following a tackle

may continue to play the ball upon creation of a ruck.

Referees will attempt to identify this situation and allow the

player to continue playing the ball. Players attempting to play

the ball after a ruck has formed will continue to be penalized.

If the initial player loses contact with the ball, he or she

becomes a player in the ruck and may not make a second

attempt to play the ball. Players on the ground must release

the ball immediately.


2009 law rulings1

2009 Law Rulings

Law Ruling 5 – August 10, 2009

Defined the procedure should a team need to go to

uncontested scrums due to front row injuries. If a team does

not have a healthy, trained front row player, the scrums will

go uncontested, but the team may not replace the player on

the field and will be forced to play down a man.


2009 law rulings2

2009 Law Rulings

Law Ruling 7 – August 25, 2009

Reviewed the procedure of entering a ruck. The Law states

that a player must join the ruck from his/her side of the ball

and bind onto a teammate when entering. The new ruling

allows a player to bind to an opponent if there is no teammate

available due to the the ruck having moved. The ruling

further defines the manner by which a player may bind onto

an opponent. There must not be a shoulder charge, but a

clear attempt to bind. Similarly, a player cannot join the ruck

and disengage in an effort to repeatedly make contact with

an opponent.


2009 law rulings3

2009 Law Rulings

Law Ruling 9 – November 11, 2009

Clearly states that a receiver cannot run into the gap in a

lineout until the ball has left the hands of the thrower.


2010 game management guidelines

2010GAME MANAGEMENTGUIDELINES


Adverse weather policy

Adverse Weather Policy

  • This policy applies to all matches played under the jurisdiction of the EPRU

  • Those played under MARFU or USA Rugby jurisdiction shall be bound by their policies

  • Rain or bad weather is an insufficient reason to cancel a match

    • Field policies and player safety (both traveling to and playing in the match) must be considered when making a game decision regarding inclement weather.

    • Either before or during the match, the referee has the power to cancel the match due to existing unsafe playing conditions in his or her opinion

  • Each home team should be aware of the rules governing use of its home pitch by the Owner of the field (i.e. Fairmount Park, University, Township, etc.) during adverse weather conditions

  • Any field restrictions should be communicated to opponents when scheduling and referees when confirming matches. If a field is closed by an Owner, the match is cancelled and must be rescheduled if it is a divisional play match


Adverse weather policy1

Adverse Weather Policy

  • If the current or pending weather is unfavorable, teams are expected to keep an open line of communication with their opponent and the referee involved. Open line of communication means phone calls with discussion or an active exchange of e-mails; one way communications are not acceptable (i.e. voicemail and/or emails without a reply)

  • If the decision is mutually reached to postpone the match, teams should communicate this to the referee, the EPRRS allocations secretary and appropriate EPRU coordinator immediately. Teams should set make-up match details by the Monday following the originally scheduled match and communicate them to the appropriate EPRU. Divisional play matches must take precedence over any 'friendly' matches.


Adverse weather policy2

Adverse Weather Policy

  • If a mutual rescheduling decision cannot be reached between the teams and the referee, both teams should contact their respective EPRU coordinator outlining the details surrounding the disagreement. Note: this should be a very last resort, teams are expected to work out match details on their own as much as possible and come to an appropriate decision. Both teams involved are expected to be respectful of their opponent's situation as well as uphold their commitment to play the match. Failure to make up a match will result in 0 or negative points awarded to each team depending on the circumstances; a team may receive 1 match report point if they have communicated with their EPRU coordinator regarding the match. Further disciplinary action or fines may be assessed depending on the circumstances


Referee abuse

Referee Abuse

Referee Abuse is one of the largest obstacles for the Society as they attempt to retain referees. Teams must be mindful that newer referees have been assigned to their match and that abusing the referee is not a productive way to vent frustration. Coaches and Club Administrators should be mindful about creating a culture that tolerates the abuse of referees or opponents by their team, their staff, or their spectators.

Discipline

Discipline

EPRRS adheres to a strict policy. Referees are required to report both Yellow and Red card. Adjudication is done by the appointed disciplinary committee and based on the reports given by the referee and any other supporting evidence.


Referee match report form

Referee Match Report Form

  • To gain a better understanding of how the individual referees are performing on a weekly basis, the EPRRS has added a simple Match Report form to the EPRRS website (www.eastpennrugby.org)

  • We encourage teams to complete the form after every match as the more feedback we have, the easier it will be for us to identify development opportunities for our referees


Referees at practice

Referees at Practice

  • In order to help teams better understand any of the laws of the game, the EPRRS would like to reaffirm its willingness to send one of our members to a practice or classroom setting for an opportunity to discuss and provide players a greater understanding of all of the laws and guidelines of the game

  • Please feel free to contact the EPRRS at any time to make use of this opportunity


Eprrs monthly meetings

EPRRS Monthly Meetings

  • As a reminder to all, the EPRRS holds monthly meetings to discuss rugby and refereeing

  • This would be a good opportunity for players and coaches to gain further insight into how the referees are calling certain aspects of the game and the reasons for doing so

  • It will also give Club personnel the opportunity to have an audience with a number of referees to better understand the game
