North Admin Rule Clarification 15.3 (i) (December 14 2016)

Further to recent cases regarding the above, the North Competitions Committee would like to apologise for any confusion this caused. The rule was written in trying to highlight the enforcement by the RFU  and should have read

"A club causing a match to go to uncontested scrums shall not be allowed to replace the player, and the offending side shall continue with 14 players."

 Again see appendix 2  15 (b) Page 232.

Please also refer to this flow chart when deciding on the correct course of action.
