From August the 1st this year the IRB will be implementing a 12 month global trial of 13 ELVs. All ELVs will be implemented by the IRFU in both the professional and domestic competitions – however, a decision on the IRFUs implementation of ELV 17 (pulling down the maul) at age grade level will be made next month.
To facilitate the implementation of these changes the IRFU in conjunction with the provincial Branches will be running a series of education initiatives to up skill coaches and referees in the interpretation of these Law changes. The date for the Connacht seminar will be Wednesday July 17th at 7.30 PM Galway.
All club coaches are strongly advised to attend this seminar.
