Here are 3 of the new rules...

7 is the new 5 metres!

You'll now be retiring 7m to get onside and the dashed line is now 7m from the try line.

Zero touch!

If the ball is touched by a defender and regathered by an attacking player or following an intercept, the next touch will be zero.

Ruck it!

Defenders interferring in the ruck or the roll ball will be penalised 10m ahead of the mark.
