    Super Rugby Aotearoa will introduce new laws when the sport returns next week

    Super Rugby Aotearoa will introduce new laws when the sport returns next week


    A golden point system to differentiate draws will mirror the NRL with the first team to score during a 10-minute period of extra time declared the winner.

    The competition will also allow players to be replaced after they're shown a red card.

    Once a player is sent off, the affected team must wait 20 minutes before using their bench.

    And Cheree Kinnear reports a further development's afoot if covid-19 social distancing's relaxed.
