New rule change for 2022

Following the decision to defer the reintroduction of scrums for another month, the RFL Laws Committee has also scrapped the recently-introduced ball steal law from the 2022 season.

Members were unanimous in their view that the law be rolled back to its 2021 interpretation and that the RFL should lobby the International Rugby League for the law’s removal from the international game from 2022.

In attendance at the meeting were: Ralph Rimmer (Chair); Robert Hicks (Secretary); Chris Chester (Head coaches); Laura Fairbank (RFL Head of Medical); Steve Ganson (RFL Head of Match Officials); Carl Hall (League 1 clubs); Paul Harrison (Championship clubs); Gemma Phillips (Clinical Advisory Group); Dave Rotheram (RFL Chief On-field Officer); Paul Sculthorpe (England Performance Unit); Kris Radlinski (Super League clubs); Danny Wilson (Heads of Youth).
