A free resource to help referees, players and fans enhance their knowledge of the Laws of Rugby Union.

Up to date with the 2013 Laws




Welcome to LearnRugbyLaws.com sister of RugbyRefs.com. I hope you find the site useful and interesting and will return frequently to refresh your Laws knowledge.

Recent Updates

Now that the iRB have decided which of the trialled Experimental Law Variations are becoming law we can go back to enjoying a game that is the same no matter where in the world you watch/play/referee it. With this comes the time to finally bring this site up to date and give it a spring clean.

Coming Soon

You will notice a new logo is up and the buttons will be changing soon too. A lot of the old stuff will disapear completely and some will be incorporated into RugbyRefs.com


Thank you very much to Boyd Barker who got this web-site up and running and to Simon griffiths who kept it upto date before I managed to get my hands on it. It is a fantastic idea and I was very pleased to have been able to take over the running of the site. I believe it compliments my work at RugbyRefs.com nicely.

I am Robert Burns, and I've now got the honour of keeping this site in working order. If you have any comments please feel free to head over to the LRUL forum. If you have any questions or problems you can send an e-mail to robert@burns.net and I'll try to sort it out. (LRUL only please - I'm not an agony aunt!). I referee in Perth, WA (Australia), but began my refereeing in London, the largest referees' society in the world.
