Current Referee grade:
Level 2
Two players from each side are still required to for a line out (18.11)
Once formed players must not leave (18.17)

So once player arrive / form the line out they can't leave So you don't sent more than one in unless you want to form the LO.


Simplfying the laws and making them less clear, I agree. But logically the effect is unchanged.

The old laws prohibited players from merely approaching the lineout, and then not joining it , but instead changing their mind at the last minute and falling back (ie playing silly buggers with numbers )

That didn't make the new law book

Read the new law in the CONTEXT that the law has not changed. I'm off to watch my paint dry. Bye for now.

Well, the context (or, as you call it CONTEXT) is explained in post 20 above.
