SARU launches 2015 edition of ‘Laws of the Game’

PUBLISHED: May 8, 2015

SARU has released its updated book Laws of the Game Rugby Union, following the approval of some Primary School rugby law variations approved by SARU’s General Council at the annual meeting in April. The book is now on sale for R120.

The compact guide contains the Laws related to senior rugby as well as the law variations for Under-19 and schools, Sevens and 10-a-side rugby.

But it is unique to South Africa in that it also contains important information such as SARU’s BokSmart Concussion Management Protocols, Technical Zone Protocol, the Schools’ Rugby Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct, and contact details of the provincial referee societies.

Readers will also find illustrated guides to the hand signals used by referees and diagrams to illustrate the Laws in certain aspects of the game.

The book also includes important information on scrum law variations in age group rugby and the Primary school law variations.

Laws of the Game Rugby Union can be ordered on www.sareferees.co.za for R120. This includes VAT and postage within South Africa.
