2016 Rugby League Laws Of The Game

The NRL has informed us of an error that has been spotted in the printed edition of the 2016 Rugby League Laws Of The Game.

There has been NO change to Section 11 of the 2015 Law which states that: 

Section 11 The Tackle and Play-the-Ball

7 (b) When the ball has been kicked directly into touch in general play in a forward direction on the full, a handover (play-the-ball) is awarded to the non-kicking team at the point where the ball was kicked (but no closer than 10 metres from the touchline and goal line). If the ball is kicked directly into touch in general play in a backward direction on the full, a handover (play-the-ball) is awarded to the non-kicking team at the point from where the ball first crossed the touchline (but no closer than 10 metres from the touchline and the goal line).

“We will adjust all online versions of the 2016 Law Book to reflect the reinstatement of this Clause and will amend current Law 7 (b) to become Law 7 (c)” – Brad Levy – NRL Education, Training & Research Manager.
