Law 3.10 The referees power to stop an injured player from continuing.
Please note that Law 3.9 has now been renumbered to Law 3.10 in 2016 World Rugby Laws of the Game.
It is important to note that outside of the numerical change that nothing has changed (a) in terms of the wording of law and (b) how referees are to apply it.
In case there is any confusion can I please ask that you action the following:
- Inform your members of the change to Law 3.10.
- Send your members the link of the 2016 IRFU Concussion Guidelines for Referees http://www.irishrugby.ie/downloads/Concussion_Guidlines_for_Referees_2016.pdf
- Put the link to the Concussion Guidelines on your association / society website.
