Regulations Changes 2013/14

SUMMARY OF REGULATION CHANGES – 2013-14

Following the annual review of the Competitions Regulations a number of changes have been made which will come into force immediately. Most of these changes were circulated to the clubs in May ahead of the Leinster Branch AGM and a summary is outlined below. The Competition Regulations in their entirety will be circulated shortly.

Also please note that Electronic Team Sheets must be submitted for all competitive matches including Area competitions.

FAILURE TO FIELD FRONT ROWS (Does Not Apply To Metro Leagues Divisions 10 & 11)

If a team is unable to field a front row from the start, then the fixture shall go ahead with uncontested scrums and remain uncontested and the following shall be the consequence:
1. The team unable to field the front row will play the match with a maximum of 14 players from the start.
2. The offending team must have 8 players in the pack

If a Club fails to nominate the required number of players capable of playing in front row positions so that after injuries to the front row, the captain of that team declares that he has no front row replacements, the match will continue with non-contested scrums and the following shall apply, and sanctions and/or penalties as provided and set out elsewhere in the regulations may be applied by the Competitions Committee having reviewed the referees report.

1. The team unable to field the front row cannot replace that front row player thereby reducing their number by one..
2. The offending team must have 8 players in the pack
