Changes: World Rugby Reveals Radical Plan to Speed up Sport and Broaden Its Appeal (The Guardian)

  • Takeaway: World Rugby introduced a few changes - some immediate - and proposed long-term recommendations in an effort to speed up the game.
  • Immediate Changes:
    • Five second counter on referee's "use it" call at ruck/breakdown
    • Hookers must maintain a "full brake foot" to aid in the "stability of the scrum during the engagement sequence"
    • Enforcing less on-field water carriers
  • Long-Term Proposals:
    • Reducing the tackle height at the elite level
    • Global trial of a 20-minute red card
    • Reducing the number of replacements
