Restoring Focus – Videos illustrating Law variations

  • April 5, 2021

Message from Andy McMillan (Chairman, Training & Development)

The Warwickshire Society of Referees has made available four videos to help officials prepare for contact rugby under the agreed Law Variations.

The videos can be accessed here and consist of the following:
1. 20 very short clips that highlight issues relating to the Law Variations (4 mins)
2. A clip which “listens-in” on a referee’s pre-match briefing to players (5 mins 30 secs)
3. A clip which “listens-in” on a pre-match briefing to captains (2 mins 20 secs)
4. The full match (1.5hrs)

Many thanks to Warwickshire Referees Society for the use of their clips.

I have made brief notes, in this supporting document, on each of the 20 clips that point to the relevant Law variation issues. I suggest you have a copy to-hand when viewing the video clips.
As always, if you have any queries about the Law variations, please send me an email and I will try to answer them.
