Crab outlawed

Post by Old Hob » Fri Dec 24, 2021 11:03 am

Saracens' new tactic of the crab has been outlawed by world rugby. They said; "This tactic must be discouraged. If a player is fully bound and they move beyond the offside line then they must return to behind the hindmost foot before being able to be involved in play once the ball is out or is played from the ruck,"

The article I read implied that the ban is immediate. Interesting to see if it is tried and if refs penalise it!
