South Africa take stand over laws

South Africa take stand over laws

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end for the Sanction ELVs. Having campaigned against ELVs I have found those applied in the Northern Hemisphere to be broadly positive as they have made the game easier to ref (caveat - no to pulling down mauls). The whole free-kick for penalty/scrum variation are a fundamental change in the game and must be resisted. The only remaining champion for the cause is Australia's John O'Neil.

Don't you just love it when the Aussies are on the losing side!

I agree, these NH ELV's are fine by me, aside from the dangerous maul one.

Good to see SA seeing sense. Just NZ and OZ now... John O'Neils predictions of a split like that of rugby league is looking more and more rediculous.

Safe bet, follow the money... where is the money in rugby? The Northern hemisphere
