2020 Rugby Law Book Available Online
Each year South African Rugby produces a South African book of the Laws of the Game. It’s not a different text from World Rugby’s text, but it has South African photographs.
In other words, the laws are the same, the pictures different. Some of them are even amusing.
This year, when the virus-plagued world is different, there will be no printed version but what appears online is what the book would have been, pictures and all.
There is also an Afrikaans translation of World Rugby’s book.
The Laws are the same, just the look of the online versions differ.
The law book is not only for referees. It is there for players, coaches and spectators.
When he was playing for South Africa, the great Boy Louw always had a law book in his pocket and that in the 1920s and 1930s when the laws were much less complicated.
It’s a book that may have surprises for some!
