World Rugby Law Clarifications 2015 – Laws 15, 16, 22

World Rugby has issued another clarification. This addresses kicking the ball out of the hands of another player. That has always been specifically prohibited when a player is attempting to touch the ball down for a try, but it was not addressed for more general situations. This clarification makes it clear – that action is illegal and dangerous.
