Bath Rugby call for clarity over new scrummaging laws

Bath Rugby forwards coach Neal Hatley has raised concerns with the RFU and Premiership Rugby Ltd about how new scrummaging laws will be policed.

With less than a month to go until the start of the Premiership, Hatley says forwards coaches are frustrated about what they claim is a “lack of clarity” from the International Rugby Board about how the new regulations will be interpreted and enforced.

The IRB has announced a season-long global trial of a new crouch-bind-set engagement sequence at the scrum, with referees also instructed to ensure the ball is not put in unless the scrum is square and stationary.
