A single point separated the sides as a hard-fought 5th-8th place play-off finished in France's favour at Stade Henri Desgrange on Tuesday night. Check out some photos from Ireland's fourth IRB Junior World Championsip match.
The hanges are as follows:
Definition: A penalty try will be worth three points in all matches.
Over 50 Veteran Player (Law 3.2)
In Veterans League matches, over-50 players must be clearly identifiable by one of the following means:
- Wearing different colour shorts to their team-mates
- Wearing a different colour jersey to their team-mates that does not clash with the opposition colours
Over-50 players must make themselves known to the referee before the start of play. Over-50 players not adhering to this law will be awarded one (1) point per try scored.
Jumping/Spinning (Law 5.17B)
The ball carrier must not jump to avoid being tagged. In mixed games, the ball carrier may not spin/swivel through 360 degrees to avoid being tagged. A side step is allowed.
A 360 degree spin is permitted in men-only matches (including men-only veterans' matches). Any contact initiated in an attempted spin or swivel is liable to sanction. The onus is on the ball carrier to avoid contact.
