Major Tackle Safety Changes

Season 2024 will see a change to the tackle height rule for all levels of Community Rugby across Australia. We’re thrilled to share that the tackle height has been reduced to below the sternum, making Rugby Union safer and reducing the risk of concussion significantly. These new rules have been trialled across the world including in NZ, England, France and have seen really positive results.

Let’s continue to enjoy the thrill of rugby, with added peace of mind knowing that the game is evolving to be safer and that our kids are being looked after!
