A new law update regarding a slight change in the definition of hindmost and the revised TMO protocol following successful trialling in November.

The paper attached was approved by Rugby Committee and EXCO and should be self-explanatory.

Please note that the revised TMO protocol should be adopted for all competitions which commence after January 1st, 2019. This includes Super Rugby, the Six Nations, Rugby World Cup etc. For competitions that have already started they may continue under the old protocol until the current competition concludes. If these competitions wish to adopt the revised protocol mid-way through their competition they can do so.

All changes are reflected in the new law book and online version:
