    I think the point is that it is not a 'quick lineout', more of a normal lineout, but you dont have to wait for the ref or opposition.

    so i would assume, no, different ball is allowed at the spot where the ball crosses the line.

    Which would logically assume that the laws for throwing straight, baulked throws etc will apply.

    I know the straight throw law is pretty much ignored for a quick lineout (as long as it isn't forward) and the position of the thrower only needs to be behind the mark. A lot of shenanigans could be reffed out of the contest by applying existing lineout laws and classing them as a normal lineout.

    Do you think it would be a good idea for us to sit through at least one game, see how it all works and then discuss the pro's and con's without having to speculate about the numerous possibilities?? A heel of a lot of work has gone into this, so let's give it all chance first

    I think its just anticipation for the game and speculation at how its gonna work, nothing negative

    Fair point Innforcer.
    Interesting to see how many cynical play cards get issued.
    Would love to see the equivalent of yellows in 7's, sendoffs for 2 or 5 mins...

    I'll be honest, I've been a bit skeptical about the change up. But, I think it will bring something new to how we play rugby in Australia - a lot of this stuff is already happening in European leagues and Varsity Rugby in South Africa and seems to work well - we're just putting more of it together in to the one game. Could be the shake up we need and get more people excited for Rugby!

    If you want a really quick lineout you should train wingers to throw the ball in - they're normally close to the sideline anyway and the hookers are normally in the centre of the field. Could be an interesting tactic to catch the opposition napping...

    You're entitled to your opinion of course, but I think an extended discussion trying to ascertain the possible impacts of the law variations is infinitely preferable to us all sitting around bleating about how much Cameron Clyne sucks.

    I will continue my amateur analysis and attempts to find sneaky ways to use the laws to gain an advantage.

    Re wingers throwing the ball in, winger to flyhalf wouldn't need to be thrown in the traditional manner, a pass that follows the right path, travels more than 5m and is thrown from the mark should satisfy all the requirements. It will only become an issue if there's a defender to compete.

    I wonder if they could tweak that super-try idea, so that the attacking team are rewarded for not taking the ball to ground and no are rucks formed during the continuity of possession? Instead, the attacking team attempt to stay on their feet, getting rewarded for the standing recycle; driving/rolling on, drawing in the opposition forwards, keeping the movement advancing onwards before releasing the ball out to the backs again.
