World Rugby Decision Making Framework 2019/20
To view the decision making framework for high tackles, Click Here.
The goal of this framework is to guide users to arrive at decisions that are not only consistent and accurate, but also objective, in that they can be explained even with allowable disagreements.
The purpose is to improve consistency in application of sanctions by distinguishing between dangerous tackles that warrant a penalty, yellow card or red card. Furthermore, aiming to support protection of the head of both players by consistently and frequently sanctioning the tackle behaviour that is known to be the highest risk.
