World Rugby consider radical law changes

Among proposals being considered is a ’50-22′ rugby league-style kicking law that allows the attacking team to get put in at a line-out

A three-day player welfare and law symposium in Paris has produced eight new rules designed to improve safety with a particular focus on forcing teams to commit less to defence, thereby reducing the number of collisions.

Among the proposals being considered are a ’50-22′ rugby league-style kicking law that would enable the attacking team to get the put in at a line-out despite having kicked the ball out.

Also under examination is the possibility of upgrading yellow cards to a red upon reviewing the incident while a player is in the sin-bin and also lowering the height of a tackle to below the waistline.
