RFU requests views on the Global Law Trials

  • October 18, 2021

The RFU is requesting opinions from the community game on the Global Law Trials (GLTs), and in particular from referees, by means of a short survey. The responses will help shape feedback to the RFU Laws Sub-Committee and the Match Official Development Team and then onto World Rugby.

Message from Michael Patz (RFU Match Official Development Manager) and Dr Tim Miller (Chair, RFU Laws Sub-Committee):

Dear colleagues,

We need your help!

As you know, the evaluation of the GLTs will determine what is, and what is not, written into law for next season. World Rugby is evaluating their impact in every professional competition worldwide as well as internationals. In the Premiership, the RFU is conducting its own research which will be presented to World Rugby. At levels 3-5, referees are required to complete a short survey after each game.

What we would like to do is ask referees at level 6 and below to complete the same survey, using  this link https://forms.office.com/r/uiTa9m79zU  Having, literally, thousands of responses from the Community Game will form part of the RFU submission to World Rugby.

Your society’s support is essential and greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
