Ruling 2015 - 8
Union / HP Ref Managers Paddy O'Brien
Law Reference 3
Date 8 December 215
Request
Paddy O’Brien has requested clarification on the minimum number of players needed to start a sevens match.
 
Clarification in Law by the Designated Members of the Rugby Committee
The designated members have agreed that in exceptional circumstances a Union may authorise matches to be played with fewer than seven players in each team. When that happens, all the Laws of the Game apply except that each team must have a minimum of five players on the pitch (at least three players in the scrum at all times and a minimum of two backs).
