Super Rugby Aotearoa has announced two new exciting rules for 2021.

A goal-line dropout and a captain’s referral will be included in the 2021 competition, both of these rules are used in the NRL.

Furthermore, the golden point and red card replacement laws have been retained, after they were introduced last season. 

A goal-line dropout will occur when an attacking player carrying the ball is held up in goal or knocks the ball on in goal, or when an attacking kick is grounded by the defending team in goal. 

A captain’s referral will allow one opportunity per match for captains to ask the referee to have the Television Match Official (TMO) check for an infringement in the lead-up to a try or review foul play.

The footage must be ‘clear and obvious’ for the TMO to uphold a referral.
