Hampshire RFU Rule Revision

By Nigel Youell

Technical Areas

Following the Hampshire RFU AGM where a Discipline question was raised under the Discipline AOB slot, we have revised the Regulation 15 under section 1508-1510 Technical areas.

Here is the relevant revised section

Technical Areas
1508 Technical Areas are compulsory for all Clubs playing in the English Clubs Rugby Union Leagues and all pitches on which Club Hampshire matches are played. The Area is to be as defined in RFU Regulation 13.7.4. If no technical areas are marked out then Clubs should use cones for match officials and replacements to stand in.

1509 Technical Areas are also required in all matches in Hampshire’s Youth Competitions, Colts League, and in Adult Knock-Out Competitions. All Clubs should aim to implement this as an example of good practice in every match particularly at youth level.

1510 All match officials and replacements that are pitch side of the barrier should remain in the Technical areas or behind their own dead-ball line. The only exceptions to this are club physiotherapists and Doctors. No one should roam the touch line within the barrier. See RFU Regulation 13.7.3 – 13.7.8 - Barrier from Field of Play and Permitted Personnel.

1511 Any willful breach of 1508 to 1510 reported by a referee to a Competition Organiser may result in a penalty being imposed by the appropriate Committee.

The new regulation in full can be found on the HRFU website HERE

Please ensure you all adhere to the regulations.
