The great rugby rules experiment will come to an end next month when the IRB Council decides how the game should be played.

Last week, a high-powered conference attended by the likes of Steve Hansen, Nick Mallett and Robbie Deans made collective recommendations on which laws should be put forward for potential ratification.

They came up with 10 they felt were worthy of consideration, kicked out others (such as being able to pull

down the maul and not match numbers at the lineout) and referred the sanctions and breakdown experiments for further research.

The IRB Council will vote on May 13.

To be adopted into law, each ELV will need a 75 per cent majority. Whatever becomes law will stay in place until the World Cup and will be introduced globally.

May 13 is, then, a big day for rugby.
