Shorter, simpler law book comes into force on 1/1/2018

After a thorough re-write to make things simpler for all of rugby’s stakeholders, the new law book comes into play today (1 January 2018). You can download a copy by clicking the image.

It’s 42% shorter than it was before although the World Rugby group involved in the re-write, maintain that nothing has been removed.

But, a warning, the new book does not include the global experimental law variations we are all now operating under. You’ll need to still use the law variations as outlined here, but obviously the law number references are now all wrong.
