ELVs are here - as RFUW confirm their "support"

Last weekend was quietly historic as it was the first weekend to feature the new Experimental Laws (ELVs) worldwide with the most public example being the Tri-Nations game between New Zealand and South Africa. From now on every game you will see will (or at least should) be played to the new laws.

It was therefore appropraite that RFUW finally confirmed today what we all knew when they issued a statement "supporting the IRB in trialling the 13 Experimental Law Variations (ELVs) for the 2008/09 season". Interesting wording, incidentally - I'm not sure that the RFU have gone so far as to use the word "support" in anything they have produced on the ELVs...

The detail confirms that all the ELVs will apply to women's and girls's rugby, except for the Law 17 Maul ELV which will only apply to women's Premiership and Championship leagues - ie. not the lower levels of adult rugby as these are played to U19 laws - and also not U18 or U15 rugby.

The full statement appears on the Herts blog.
