New Tackle Height Laws

Date: 23 January 2023

Many members and supporters of the club will have seen the announcement in the last week from the RFU that from next season the law around tackle height will change from Level 3 (National One) downwards. Tackles will now have to start at or below the waist.

The club has received the following documents from Lancashire RFU which include a note from RFU council members which explain their position as well as a paper from Dr Ross Tucker, a representative of World Rugby.

We would invite all club members and supporters to read the documentation.
