January Society Meeting – Tuesday 7th January Sedgley Park

The T&D input for the meeting on 7th January will include:
1. The next Preferred Options Document (PO13) will be discussed.
The title is ‘Communication and Managing Conflict’. (Text and clips.)
2. Laws Forum.
The idea is that if anyone has an issue of law or regulation that they would like to have clarified they
should email the question to Andy McMillan by 31st December.  Dependent on time available,
the questions will be put to a panel of members who will discuss or clarify the issue.  The enquiries will be entirely
anonymous and may cover issues relevant to any range of referee and match levels.
Fred Howard and Dave Guerin have agreed to be part of the panel and others will be invited.
Example: ‘If there has to be 8 against 8 in an uncontested scum, what happens if other players have to leave
the field through injury or card? Could this result in fewer and fewer backs?’
