World Rugby have compiled a study calling for major law changes to deal with COVID-19, including an end to reset scrums and team huddles.
It will have major ramifications to the sport at every level. Their findings include the following changes:
- Team huddles would be outlawed
- Players required to change kit and headgear at half-time
- Players MUST wash their hands and face with soap for 20 seconds before kick-off and then during the interval
- Match balls are changed and cleaned frequently
- Banishing reset scrums is one of the key conclusions (award of a free-kick against the infringing side)
- The elimination of upright and choke tackles
LIST | 6 sons of famous rugby players who could play for England
Note: Only players aged 23 and below have been included
1. Cameron Redpath
Redpath, who is the son of former Sale and 60-cap Scotland scrum-half Bryan Redpath, recently joined Bath after the black, blue and whites paid a six-figure sum to release the 20-year-old from his existing deal with Sale Sharks.
The versatile 20-year-old is an age-group international who trained with England during the 2020 Six Nations in the build-up to their victory over Ireland. He is comfortable at centre, fly-half and full-back.
