The ELVs explained

Remember the ELVs? The stack of "experimental" law changes that come in next season? Well the IRB have produced what is comfortably the most accessible and understandable guide to what everyone is likely to have to cope with from September.

The IRB Guide to the Experimental Law Variations is a well designed full colour guide which goes through all the changes in a logical order, with plenty of illustrations. The guide (which is dated August 2008!) will eventually be supported by a series of videos - though these are not yet available.

This really is essential reading for everyone - including those who stand on the touchline (so that you know what is going on!).

    Just to let you know the RFU have announced that ELV 2 & 3, to do with pulling down the maul, will not be trialled by those playing under the U19 variations. This includes girls rugby.

    Should reduce parental angst!

    No collapsing mauls!!!! Seems like a sensible decision.
