Following on from consultation with community rugby stakeholders, Scottish Rugby’s Club Rugby Board (CRB) approved a lower maximum tackle height law trial of below the sternum for implementation across community game, beginning in the 2023/24 season.
This change has been led by World Rugby endorsed research which has proven there to be positive outcomes on the reduction of tackle height on the reduction of head-to-head contact in game.
This Scottish Rugby Roadshow aims to engage players, coaches and match officials in a series of workshops, webinars and courses, with specially created resources to help them prepare for the changes in relation to the new tackle height laws that will apply from next season.
So far, the response from other regions has been extremely positive and supportive of the trial. The sessions themselves have been very engaging, and clearly outline the purpose and hopes for this trial.
Lets’s get as many of our players, coaches, and match officials attending on the evening as possible.
