IRFU TAG Laws

Fancy brushing up your knowledge of the Laws of the game? Got a question on an area not quite clear to you?

Download the full Laws of IRFU Tag 2016 edition click here (242KB).
In 2016, following feedback and consultancy, there will be a number of experimental law variations in operation. These variations will be applicable to all IRFU-run tag rugby leagues and events.

For a full overview of these ELVs, please CLICK HERE.

Also, please remember last year's law variation. This is now in full effect
LAW: A defender may go to ground/dive on the ball to gain possession (Law 6.24)

Old Law: Play on
Amended Law: No player may go to ground to gain possession. Sanction: Penalty

This law was changed to make the game safer and lessen the likelihood of contact. This has been happening when defenders come across to try and gain possession when the attacker is nearly in possession. This, for the main part, resulted in contact.
