It seems like only yesterday that world rugby has brought in some new rules are just change some existing one. I could be wrong but the last rule changes happened only last year 2018/1019 season. the changes were
World Rugby has 6 new amendments ready to trail after the world cup this year.
The big one that stand out for me the 50:22 rule. This is the if the attacking team is in there now have they can kick the ball and if it bounces out before the 22 they get the line out throw. I can see this one taking a while to get use to and leading to more tries because you will have to drop some player to cover back. I could be wrong but this could be a good change.
One of the rules I don’t like is delaying the defensive line. Delaying the movement of the defensive line at the ruck until the ball has reached the first attacking player or until the receiver opts not to pass. I think this makes it just a bit too much in favour of the attacking team, but I am sure there will be a lot of people smarter them me that will be able to make these laws to work for them.
Theses laws are set to be trialed in competitions after the World Cup.
